Is there a reason you have the butts in a pan instead of on the rack with a pan beneath to catch any drippings?  You're a brave man doing a first smoke for your wife's Bday.  Looks great so far.

I have read a few threads and like Jeff's method, I can take the juice from the pan and use it as a finishing sauce.  First time so we will see, so far I like the results.

Got the ribs rubbed down, covered the butts so they won't get over smoked by the ribs coming in....



So Far so good!!

Question??  When I added the ribs the temp fell to about 150 and it's taking a while to come back up.  I turned up the gas just now to get smoker temp back up, I should be fine, Right?  Once it gets back to about 240 I will adjust it so it stays....

You'll be fine...with that gasser you have control.  Now that you've bumped the heat up you've probably already recovered since posting.

Those look exceptional.  I bet the party goes off without a hitch.  I think your 8:20 post reflected the ribs absorbing alot of the heat.  Your wife's friends and family are going to be pleasantly surprised that it's not going to be the old burgers and dogs.
