Made up Jeff's "Naked Rib Rub" last night, and did a lot of reading to prepare.
This morning a friend gave me some Apple wood, so cut it into chunks. Not sure if they should be soaked. Tested my new Maverick ET-733 Wireless Meat Thermometer and found my gauges on the cooking chamber are running 30 degrees higher than the Maverick. Smoked a hot dog for my daughter. Coals will still be ready for the Royal Oak lump I found on clearance at Tractor Suply (17.6 lbs @ $3.00). Ribs go on at 9:00 am thinking they might be ready around 3:00. grilling_smilie.gif
