I've been contimplating getting an electric smoker for a long time and finally bit the bullet last week for the upcoming Giants game. I'm doing baby back ribs and found what I think is a decent rub online and have already applied said rub and have them cooling in the garage frige. Here is the rub: http://www.thesmokerking.com/page6c.html I'm going to guzzle a couple more brews to help me hit the sack, then I'm getting up at three to put them on the smoker. Planning on doing a five hour smoke at 225. I won't be adding the chips until six AM as I've been told to add the smoke last (mesquite). We'll see how this turns out. If anyone wants to jump in and add any advice I may see in the next hour or so, please jump in. I'll post updates as they unfold.
