    Hello from Wisconsin!

    I've been obsessed with grilling for years but never had a smoker. My wonderful wife got me a smoker for Fathers Day. So Sunday smoked 20lbs of babybacks. They turned out amazing!! The best ribs I've ever done.

                  Only 20lbs? That's quite a debut for a Pit rookie. But, as you will learn, didn't happen! No pics, no cook, just talk. Welcome aboard from Fond du Lac, eat good & have fun! Oh, & next time, take PICS, that's an order.

                            Thank you everyone! I think my wife took pictures, if so, I'll get them posted. I'm trying some St Louis style this Saturday and a pork shoulder to do some pulled pork as well. I'll post the smoker so you guys can give your thoughts on the best way to do the shoulder and ribs in the smoker at the same time. Obviously, the shoulder will be an all day event.

                              Ribs & pork butts are the same cook. The PB just takes 3 times longer.👍
