    Why don't you just go old school and get a stick burner or charcoal?

    Never been a fan of electric pellet types. It's like smoking a cigar vs vaping

    Agreed, pellet types seem to be for Instagram/yuppies who just want to say they 'smoke meat'. Doing it the 'right way' takes a fraction more time to do it right.

    If you really want to spend that much on an popular smoker buy a green egg XL like all the yuppies do.

    If you want to spend the money get something bad ass like this:

    I’ve got a Weber Smokey Mountain that I love. It took a few tries to figure it out. I eventually got to where it would hold within 10degrees of where I wanted it. But Colorado makes for some wild weather changes and wind/direct sun can really affect the temp, so I got a Flame Boss to control the temp and it’s awesome. Great setup that uses charcoal. You can get a Flame Boss for the BGE or other ceramic smokers too.

    WSM is what I use, simple, inexpensive, and made by webber so it is going to last me 20 years like my old webber charcoal grill will(in theory).

    Seriously, lump FTW. It's really not that hard.

    How is the flame boss working out? I might splurge for my birthday. Still kinda like going old school and manual vents but I have similar issues with the environment causing temp fluctuations.

    Weber > *. Seriously. I have 3 Webers and I won't buy anything else.

    Has anyone smoked beef ribs? I can get beef short ribs at Costco and have always wanted to smoke "dino" ribs. The Costco ribs are USDA prime (like their full brisket) but they are only ~6" long so not full "dino" ribs. I think I might give them a try but only have a 2 probe setup and will likely smoke brisket at the same time. Any tips/thoughts on temp and time for the ribs? Rubs?

    It’s fantastic. I’ve used it a handful of times now and it holds very steady. Within 5 degrees. Without me doing anything. The only drawback to it is I feel like I use more charcoal now. It’s odd. As I thought I’d use less.

    And we’ve done dino ribs before. They’re awesome. Been too long since I did them to offer advice, other than they are a must do.

    I'm starting to think just go Weber like you.

    My BBQ always works perfectly but my Pit Boss pellet is a pile of garbage.

    Thinking I might just go Weber Smokey Mountain and see how I do with it. Just concerned about lighting it which seems difficult as well as maintaining a certain temp.

    Lighting is super easy. Look up ďminion methodĒ and then just buy a chimney:

    The temp piece is a little difficult at first. But the good news is itís pretty hard to screw up bbq. Even if you jump to 300* for a bit itís not the end of the world. And once the meat hits 140 or so it stops taking in smoke so you can always finish in the oven if you run out of charcoal. The key is to always cook to temp, not time.

    How long does the charcoal last? I fill it and I’m good for how long?

    It varies on the type of charcoal you use, outside conditions, how hot you run, etc. But in general, a full basket will get you 8-10 hours. That’s for my 18.5” WSM. The larger ones will hold more charcoal.

    I buy it at Ace Hardware. But you can buy it on amazon, Bass Pro, Cabelas, etc. I just prefer Ace as they have a huge selection. Don’t buy chips. Buy fist size blocks. And for the love of God, don’t soak your wood. Highly frowned upon Click here to enlarge

    I've got a WSM and love it. For temperature control @Sticky i use the BBQ IQ110 and its pretty rock solid. With the water pan full it holds very consistent temperature, a little fluctuation when i pull it out, but i prefer the "bark" i get when i dont use a water pan.

    https://smile.amazon.com/Temperature...gateway&sr=8-2

    I have a wireless dual thermometer setup to keep an eye on meat internal temp and temperature at the grate to know if im running low on charcoal.

    I can get close to 18 hrs on a full bag of Kingsford blue bag briquettes @225. Its my go-to time and temp for pulled pork. Granted, i'm in FL so less fuel needed, but should be closer to your temperatures being in CA.
