FAQ Subject: Oklahoma Joe Longhorn Pit

I have cooked on the 27" weber for years but recently got the Oklahoma Joe Longhorn. Any tips for the novice. I read every technique you have and found i am really doing most everything wrong. Taking your advice and starting with 5 lbs of charcoal and 10 lbs of wood how long can you maintain 215F cooking say 10 sides of spare ribs. Also do you use rib racks or lay them flat. And last question can you do a combination of wood and charcoal in the firebox and a "small" charcoal fire in the smoke chamber directly under the ribs.


How long 5 lbs of charcoal an 10 lbs of wood will maintain a certain temperature can be effected by too many variables to even guesstimate. If you are going to do 10 racks of ribs plan on 5-7 hours of cooking. That means starting a secondary fire as soon as the temperature begins to slip. Burn wood down to coals or pre-burn charcoal briquettes. Lump charcoal can be added without pre-burning.

I like to cook ribs laying flat. It keeps the moisture on the surface longer.

I wouldn't think that you would need the second coal bed, but I see no reason that you could not do it as long as you didn't let the temperature get too high.

If you haven't already, click into "According to Smoky" from and read "Pork Ribs."

Have fun,
