    Hi Jeff,

    Great that I find this website of yours, I was just thinking of having smaller amount of meat.

    All I have in mind is 1 KG of Spare ribs, I was thinking if you can give me and idea about how to go about it.

    I'm a newbie on this and would love to know how I can go about smoking meat.

    Thanks in advance.
