Nope fair enough cowboy this is just me trying to learn
Jaybod I’ll tell you something. I’m 66 and my dad taught when I was a young teenager on wood and making sauce. On wood I always wrapped it but with this pitboss I just spray it hourly with Apple juice. I’ll never go back to oak wood or any wood. I’m spoiled now lol

The the first few hours you put it in the tray as well or grate and then tray? Do you find covering in the tray softens the bark to much?

In a foil pan as it says. Once a hour spray it with Apple juice then in the middle of the cook pour some apple juice in the pan. I never cover it. Now I will wrap my ribs. Doesn’t soften the bark. Anytime you don’t wrap is when you get the bark smoke ring.

Find out what works for you. Personally I never use a pan but I inject mine with a combo of apple cider vinegar, apple juice, Dr Pepper and some rub. I put mine in the center of the grates. Don’t wrap unless you want softer thinner bark, but it will take a little longer to get through the stall when all the fat is rendering/breaking down. I prefer more bark. Spray with Apple Juice/Apple Cider vinegar/Dr Pepper every hour. I cook until it’s around 205. Bone always comes out clean and it’s always super juicy and when you mix in all that incredible bark, it’s fantastic.
