Got all the mods done I wanted to and got it all seasoned on Saturday. Sunday I tried my had at some spare ribs. I need to seal around the lid somehow. They were done in less time than I anticipated. I think the temp was probably higher than I thought. I was keeping it at 225 but I was using the thermometer on the lid; not sure how accurate it is. I have to get a decent thermometer. Couple of pieces I trimmed off the ribs before cooking and smoked separately; they were good! The ribs are for a get togther today. but I had to cook them yesterday because I'm at work all day. We will see if they taste as good as they look.
