It was such a nice day out yesterday that I figured I would get some yard work done and smoke some ribs on the drum.
I like my ribs dry so I did a couple with a sweet rub and one with some heat to it.
Got the drum running @ 275° with some apple chunks and pecan pellets and let her go for 3 hours.
That's quite a setup you have there sheepdad. Those ribs look wonderful!! We thought the same thing about the weather yesterday and ended up with chicken thighs on the grill and roasted vegetables. Spring is definitely in the air when you begin to smell the aromas from other grills in the neighborhood.
I love it. Only access is thru the top. It comes with a hook so you can lift out the coal basket. I've had to add coals on cooks longer than 8 hours at the 7 hour mark and it took around 10 minutes to get it back up to temp with a mixture of hot and cold briquettes.
