After much research and great information from this forum and others, I took the plunge and made two racks of St. Louis ribs and two racks of baby backs this weekend. Rubbed, rested, and cooked for about 5 hrs total (4 for the baby backs) Pics below.

Nice job, Jim. Looks like you smoked them on the top rack, what temp did you cook them at?

Thanks Bosox.

St. Louis - 3hrs open on top @235, foiled for 1hr @250 (bottom rack), and 1hr open on top @ 235 to finish.
Baby Backs - same except 2hrs on the front end instead of 3.
Used apple pellets.

Thanks - already looking. Local Costco has prime packer brisket in stock at a very reasonable cost.
Sunday project.....

No sh*t, I've been chasing down the elusive Prime grade packer brisket forever down here in south florida, to no avail. Choice is the best i can get and I've got Restaurant Depot, Costco's, BJ's, and all the other local stores nearby.

I tried smoking a tri-tip this past weekend. Ran it at 250 for 3.5 hrs. Cooked perfectly, but had the texture of prime rib.

I'll stick with grilling the tri-tip.
