    Hello from the Midwest...

    I recently joined the club, and am really looking forward to upping my game when it comes to grilling & smoking. I have grilled over charcoal for many years, with my favorite meats being rib eye steak & Iowa chops. Last summer I bought two new items; a Weber Performer Deluxe grill & a Weber Smokey Mountain 18" cooker. I smoked brisket & a pork shoulder for the first time, and was very pleased with the results. Since joining the club I have purchased the Slow 'N' Sear, the Thermapen & the Maverick ET-732. These are great essentials that will really help me improve my results. I am looking forward to smoking ribs in the near future. It will be my first attempt! Looking forward to learning a lot here, and if I can share a tip or two along the way, I certainly will!

                Welcome to The Pit csthomas61! Great to have you here. Nice job on your signature too. You have some fine equipment to get you to pitmaster status quickly. For your first attempt at ribs, of course you're aware of Meathead's Last Meal Ribs recipe I'm sure, but also check out ABCbarbecue.com's ribs recipe to tailor it to your SnS, if that's what you'll use.

                Also, it's very important that you add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list in case you are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner!

                  Thanks Huskee. I have looked at Meathead's Last Meal recipe, and I will check out the ABC recipe as well. I am trying to decide which cooker to use; the Performer or the WSM. Since this is my first attempt at ribs, do you have any thoughts on that?

                      csthomas61 Tough choice, not sure there's a better answer. Are you doing one rack or more than one? The Weber/SnS is a great cooker for one rack, two if you cut them in half and position the halves properly, and it will cook your ribs with one chimney full of briquets. The WSM might hold more, but it has its own necessary arranging. I don't own a WSM myself so I can't comment which one would taste better, if any different at all, but I can assure you the kettle/SnS is 'Grade A' if you follow the lighting techniques.

                        Thanks for your reply. Since I just bought the SNS, I think I will try it on the Performer. It sounds like a great method!
