Although I screwed up the ribs a bit trying to change temps (got bad smoke), that was just a lesson learned. They were still the most moist ribs I've ever smoked.
And the ABT's were amazing. I'd done them once before and my wife and I both agreed "this is what they're supposed to taste like!"
The steak was gorgeous. Working with premium beef obviously helps a lot... But they came out great. I got a better sear than I've ever had before. And I could tell why--just trying to flip the meat during the sear was painful because it was so hot. And I was a fair bit tipsy, and was still overwhelmed by the temperature that fire was putting out. I don't think a gasser or a pellet smoker could do that.
And the corn likewise came out perfect. I used Meathead's method of just butter and tarragon, and everyone loved it.
