I have been using a vertical smoker for years and had my rib's down! I recently purchased a Brinkmann Cimmeron smoker (horizontal). I seem to be doing everything the same, but my ribs are very dry. I have the following thoughs as to why. The Brinkmann is more efficent and thus the ribs are over cooked. There is more air flow with the horizontal. The water in the vertical was directly under the heat source, in the horizontal, it is not. Or, I am so excited with the Brinkmann that I am drinking to much as I smoke and loose track of the time.
Anyone have any thoughts or opinions?
Thanks - JOHN
