This recipe is my first set of ribs on an incomplete electric smoker but complete enough to test. I am excited because no worries about a store-bought electric smoker catching fire again and I don’t have to tend to fire I don’t have time for tinkering. These were done at 225 for 4 hours and came out great. The outside temperature was about 90, and the flex was about 10 degrees. The unit turns off at 225, so the heat will start to drop, and the unit will turn back on (in these conditions) at 215. Then rinse and repeat on its own. These were cooked at 220 instead of 225. When you add wood chips the temperature will spike up. Get the lid back on, and they will peter out.
