Again, great job on the ribs.
P.S. - Does your wife know you call her ol' lady? heh, heh
Thanks PG!! Yeah I'm not too thrilled with the CG, way too much maintenance and work needed to put into it for it to perform half decent. I usually use lump so the ash problem isnt as bad as with briquettes, but I do keep up on the emptying of it. I know what ya mean about cracking open the SFB to get temps back up, seems like when using CC, it goes out way too fast and I dont get any time out of it. Next weekend I will definitely be making a few mods to it. When I had my Duo with SFB I never used any kinda charcoal, just wood. I'm leaning more towards going that route again especially if I have to deal with the CG Pro too much longer
About the Mrs......she knows I throw out the "ol' lady" every once in a while. I cant help it, I was born and raised in VA by my grandparents, so needless to say I got a real old school upbringing! Thats something my grandfather always called my grandma so it just kinda stuck. Glad she doesnt mind it though
