I did it! I finally smoked my first ribs and brisket!

Lol the ribs were better than any rib joint Ive been to. the brisket was wonderful once we cut it correctly (I had the grain wrong at first, next time I will check the grain before I cook it). Little did I know there were easier things I could have cut my teeth on but I feel so accomplished; my next attempt will be a pork shoulder picnic roast I've had in the freezer especially for this occasion,

Congratulations! Ribs are good to begin with - knowing you did it yourself must have made them extra yummy. I know very little about smoking meat except for the end results are wonderful. I keep telling Himself he needs to take up a hobby (smoking meats) now that he's home all the time. He playing "deaf"...

No pictures I got too excited and forgot. Hubby doesn't grill or smoke. He cleans the house for me while I BBQ, says "you go honey", and hands me his plate. Sometimes he'll even carve the meat for me.

Mesquite wood chunks and a trash can smoker with a brand new trash can made in the U S of A so I don't have to work about the different chemicals that find there way into made in China trashcans. I bought most of the stuff at Menard's except for some old grill parts we canibalized and hubby and I built it together (he likes to help me).
