So the weekend was supposed to be spent installing a new exhaust on my car, and due to circumstances out of my control, this would not be the case. So I sat for a bit and wallowed in my own self pity while staring at my neglected SMOKE VAULT. It then hit me like an 18 wheeler, that this cannot happen..... I have the SPRINT CUP CHAMPIONSHIP on Sunday followed by the PATS vs COLTS game. A DOUBLE WHAMMY!!! The SMOKE VAULT whispered to me... "We haven't played in a while and I miss your company. Lets say you go to Costco and grab some ribs and other goodies that play nice together and lets play?!"

Membrane off, wrap in in fridge for night..... see you in a few hours my pretties..
Woke up at 04:45 and snuck downstairs as not to awaken the sleeping bear and put naked ribs into a marinade for 4 hrs. (SHHH...don't pay any attention to the ingredients in the background!!!)
Prepping beans. This is a close to THE BEST bean recipe on this forum...DUTCH's.
Prepping Mac and Cheese.
Ribs drained of marinade and on the block for seasoning. Rubbed with yellow mustard and the applied the seasoning. Really good stuff, highly recommended.
About to enter the hot box..
Temp up to 300 for start and placed the chip tray in. Adjusted to 225 and hold.
Mastering the THIN BLUE LINE...
Well.... not much more to do now but crack a cold one. I have no water pan in there this time and will do this w/o wrapping this time. This was the first time I marinated the ribs, so felt no need to try the wrap?
