Well me and my daughter are gonna be out of town next weekend for mothers day so were doing mothers day this Sunday. The plans are to do 2 racks of spare ribs and a brisket flat. I'm gonna be smoking with a grill that has a smoke box on the side of it. I did some chickens a few weekends ago on it and had a hard time keeping the temp right. The chickens turned out good anyway, especially for my first time smoking anything. We're gonna see how it goes this weekend for weather or not I get another smoker. I went to day and bought my spares and we already had the flat in the freezer at the house. When I did the chickens I had just a regular thermometer so I picked up a digital thermometer with a wireless pager for it.
