    First cook LSG AG&S

    Here's the inaugural cook on the Lone Star Adjustable Grill & Smoker that landed here this week.

    I cooked a slab of spare ribs over Fogo Premium at 275 F upper grate. I used the Fireboard and a Pit Bull fan. The slab was rubbed with Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust and sauced at the end with mango BBQ sauce. I was in a bit of a time squeeze, lazy, and didn't wrap the ribs.

    I learned a lot about the pit by tweaking intake and vent settings during the cook to watch response. I am now looking forward to more cooks.

    I have a prime brisket resting in the shop fridge but want to do a couple of simpler cooks to learn more about the pit first.

    Here are the ribs off to the races:

    The Pit Bull mounted on the port through the double wall on the rear. Next time I will try the Pit Viper fan which is a bit smaller in terms of air flow capacity.

    Almost done with sauce applied and finishing up. Take note of the grate temperature probe with my custom clothes pin mount! That is my lucky clothes pin that I use on several pits. I keep using it because one my sons makes fun of it.

                  Looks great. Were you using primarily briquettes with wood chunks or just wood splits?

                    No, I will not use the fan on splits. I have not tried it specifically on the AGS but my experience with splits is that it is imperative to keep a flame going. Betting yours is the same. The PID control focuses on temperature only and with splits it cannot assure a flame at the temperatures I want to cook at. So I will have to manage the fire very similar to an offset. I'll throttle the temperature at the cooking grate with the amount/size of the wood I add, air, and the frequency.

                    Alphonse - Right on about keeping a flame going with splits and temp. Exactly what I've learned on my offset. However, does not mean people won't try and I'm always open to hearing what people are trying. Thanks.

                    I am looking forward to making a run with splits to see how the fire management works. This pit is a different than our offsets since there's no stack. It will be very interesting to see how it behaves. I am hoping to cook a brisket in the coming week and give it a spin.
