My wife told me the little cooker turned out some great pork rinds....

I'm going to give it another go this weekend. I've got another slab of ribs in the fridge.

Cook time and temp is a bit of a learning curve. Lump charcoal burns a bit hotter than regular briquettes. 2.5 hours with less lump charcoal is a pretty good set and forget method (baste and glaze last 30 min). While not as 1-2-3 easy, having some coals ready to add (using less to begin with) 3/4 into your cooking time is not a bad idea. You can cook longer, and yet be sure to get the sauce to glaze at the end. You wanna flip the ribs once if you can.

I don't consider ribs to be as "set and forget" as stand roasting a chicken or a tri-tip roast, etc.
