    I'm doing my first smoke in about three years right now and it's not going too well.
    Got up late, so I got a late start.
    Fire started too cold then got too hot.
    It started to downpour about 2.5 hours into it, right about then my fire went out. I couldn't get another one started in the rain. I had my bro bring over a torch and finally got it going now it's pouring again.

    I'll try to post some pics here.
    btw i'm doing pork ribs and a batch of Dutches wicked beans.

    I guess my pics are too big? A little over 100 kbs.
    I'll have to figure out a different way to post them.

    AHHHHH young grass hopper, seems like a bit of the bed bugs got ya. In my quest for the best "Q" i have found that full comminment and good planning never have steered me wrong. i find a good pop up tent kept handy will keep the wet weather from gettin me down and not to mention a very loud alarm clock.....JMO

    Good luck and keep on tendin to your "Q" and you should do fine

    well, it wasn't a total loss, lol.
    I ended up taking the ribs off, wrapping them in foil with some apple juice and putting them in the oven at 225 for about the last 2.5 or three hours.
    I didn't get any pics after the rain storms.
    The ribs came out pretty good, real tender and a light smokey flavor.
    Dutches wicked beans were wicked. Those babies are a meal all in themselves!
    Next time I'm leaving all the seeds and ribs in the jalapenos though. I'll be curious to try all this stuff out tomorrow.
    I used apple wood for the smoke btw.
    I'll see if I can get some pics up tomorrow, too tired tonight!

    Thanks for all the comments :)
