i am just about to smoke a 13lb brisket and thought I would do some ribs first.
i could not get my usual Weber briquette and the guy at the store sold me some heat beads instead.
i used 4kg for my ribs and can't even get the temp
to 250 it's fluctuating between 212 and 220.
im using a wsm, I'm 2 hours in vents fully open and can't get to temp.
i have 8kg of these beads left and I'm concerned about starting the brisket.
these beads seem terrible.
i used the minion method.
i plan to use the minion method tonight.
i have been using Weber briquettes with no issues for months.
