              Welcome from Massachusetts, the bbq capital of New England. Great looking first cook. You know you're hooked when as soon as you finish one cook you begin to think about what to put on the smoker or grill next. Join the Pitmaster Club you won't be disappointed.

                Thank you all for the friendly reception!

                I'm from Colorado myself.

                I've already got a long list of meals I want to prepare on this grill: ribeyes, whole trout, wings, Chicago hot dogs, asparagus, squash, calcots, pulled chicken, leg of lamb. Not to mention some of the grilled Thai recipes from Andy Ricker's Pok Pok cookbook.

                Gonna be a busy summer!

                    Welcome RTzero! Good looking cook!

                    My son has the same grill, and has asked me about doing ribs on it. Do you just use one burner at one end, and put the ribs at the other end of the grill? He has asked my advice, which was to do just that, but since I've never smoked with anything other than charcoal and wood, I don't have any experience doing this on a gas grill.

                      Here's a photo of how I set it up. I only used the left burner under the water pan, with wood chips behind it in the smallest disposable loaf pan I could find (I stabbed a dozen holes in the bottom for airflow). Partway through I had to replenish the water. There's only about 1.5 inches of space between the bars and the grates, so you can't fit a very deep pan in there.

                      I was able to get the front 2/3rds of the indirect side to 225, but the back third was hotter, so partway through I rotated the ribs so they cooked more evenly. It took a lot of fiddling with the left burner to get to a stable 225.

                      At the very end I turned the middle and right burners on their lowest setting and brushed on a little sauce. I let it sizzle for about 3 minutes per side then took the ribs off.

                      This was a 3 pound slab (including bones) and it took just over four hours from putting the ribs on the grill to taking them off, plus about 45 minutes fiddling to get the temperature right before putting the ribs on. Right now I just have a Thermopen thermometer which wasn't the greatest for measuring grill temps, so while I was cooking the ribs I ordered a Thermoworks Dot with the air probe and clip to make that part easier next time.

                        Thanks! I also started with a Theroworks Dot + air probe for my first leave in thermometer, and it worked great. I would actually insert the included meat probe into the meat, and the air probe in its clip to the grate, and I would switch the wires on the Dot to alternate between checking meat versus grate temperature.

                        Later I upgraded to a Thermoworks Smoke, when it was on sale, which I am still using. I use the Dot plenty though, as its a great little unit.
