I've had an electric smoker for years and in research always used low and slow at 225 to be my base for just about everything getting smoked. From doing research on the Akorn about how great it is as retaining heat I decided to try a rib smoke at 275 yesterday. I'll tell you all what, that's going to be my go to temp from now on. I had a great smoke ring and it was tender and juicy. I did 275 for about 2 hours with 2 chunks of hickory, then wrapped in butcher paper for about an hour and then 40 minutes without butcher paper. Came out I think the best ribs I have done. I'm looking forward to trying this temp with a brisket to see what kind of smoke ring I get. Too bad it won't be until the fall since I'm leaving to sail on a boat for a few months.

That's the ideal temp for ribs in my book, and about the lowest I could consistently run my Akorn. That makes them a great match. Enjoy!
