    This is my fourth attempt to post this!  My internet just does not like to post pictures.

    We started out Memorial day by attending a ceremony to honor the fallen veterans of Prince George County, Virginia, and then headed home to get the smoker fired up for those babybacks.

    I apologize up front for a not so great qview, just too many people running around and my wife giving me crap about taking pictures of food.  [​IMG]

    So, here's my little circus tent that gave some relief from the 95 degree temps in Southern Virginia on Monday.

    Ribs ready for the WSM!

    Ready for foiling!  That's Trevor in the background, always willing to help.

    We needed a little appetizer before dinner time, so I thought it would be a good idea to throw on some shrimp.  So I sprinkled a little rub on some freshwater shrimp and tossed them in with the foiled ribs.

    Finished product...the shrimp were sweet and spicy and cooked perfectly at 15 minutes 225 degrees.

    Sorry, but because of the rush, this is the only picture of the finished ribs that I was able to take.  They were tender, juicy, and delicious.

    Here is desert.  My Mom got the recipe off of the internet, I was so proud of her!  Honey Bun cake.

    Sorry I didn't have better pics of the ribs, but I hope you enjoyed my qview all the same.

    Have a great day,

    Bill

    Everything looks killer Bill, but that honey bun cake just looks insane!  [​IMG]

    BTW, I'm not too far from you here in Orange. Gotta "love" this early summer heat wave, huh?

    Thanks Al.  Everything came out really delicious.  I have to admit I was worried about the shrimp...it doesn't take much to turn them into chewy pencil erasers!

    nice looking spread and thanks for taking the time to truly honor Memorial Day by attending a ceremony with the family, I had to chuckle over your comment about the 'wife giving you crap for taking pictures of food'......they just don't understand how it is sometimes.

    Thanks Willie,

    Yeah the girls sometimes just don't get it, unless of course they are like SMF's own Squirrel or Cowgirl!  As far as ladies go they are a couple of roses among thorns, when it comes to barbeque.

    Bill,   the picture thing is universal, easy solution though, if someone starts giving me lip about taking pictures, just tell them they dont have to eat the food,  they will shut up quick

    Ribs and shrimp look real good
