One Touch Smoking

Hey just found this forum and have been reading a bunch of stuff really enjoying it a ton. Right now I own a Weber one-touch and I want do smoke some ribs tomorrow.. I have read some on alternating pans of water w/ the coals and then pan and ribs on the top but I have a few questions. How do I check the temperature of the grill? What I mean is what kind of thermometer do I need and where do I place it? I guess that is my biggest question but also space is very limited with the pan of water on top, I still need to get a rack (I am seeing a WSM in the near future just from what I have been reading so far though). I have also read about the texas crutch is this technique suggested and if so the rack won't really help me?

Thanks a lot in advance I appreciate it.

Ok so you want to do some ribs on the OTG..take the cooking rack off and but a Al pan in the middle of the charcoal grate...light a chimney of charcoal...pour half on one side of the pan and half on the other side of the pan...you can fill the pan with water if you want...but it's not necesary..add a chunk or two of wood to the lit coals...place food grate back on the OTG with the higend part over the lit coals ...place ribs over the pan cover...and control the temp with the ashsweeper...do the old missisipi hand test on the top of the OTG..4 missisipi is good for low and slow 3 missisipi is good for indirect...2 missispi is two hot...every hour add more charcoal and another wood chuck...after the first 3 hours stop the wood but add more charcaol...somewhere around the 3-4.5 hour mark the ribs sould be done..depending on how hot the OTG was....

Welcome Gomer...I did a little OTG smoking with some chicken last night...although I went hot on purpose, but I used some hickory chinks to add flavor. I am rendering the video right now!
