    So, I took a trip with the wife to our local butcher, and armed myself for the weekend. Ribs are on today. Stay tuned for pics! And...away we go!!!

    Two pretty substantial slabs

    Cut them to be a little more uniform. Rubbed the slabs with Jeff's rub, the scraps with some KC BBQ rub, then threw it all on. Going to eat the scraps as little snacks along the way.

    Another view...

    More to come.

    Well, it was quite a fight to maintain temps.  Wasn't the smoker so much as me committing the cardinal sin of resealing my smoker, and not doing a test burn to see how it behaved with the new seal.  Anyway, we've reached the foiling point...

    And I added a little foiling juice, made from rib seasoning, apple cider vinegar, and chicken broth.

    Still going...

    And here are the rest:

    Wife decided to throw on some mac and cheese to smoke with me, using a four cheese recipe we found last year

    Another view of the mac

    Foil stage is done...time to glaze and let sit in the smoke again

    Trust me...I'm a doctor

    Other slab

    Looking good, ready for another hour

    Took the juice from the foil, added ketchup and honey, and reducing for a sauce

    Mac is done...beautiful color and still tender

    Finished product

    There's the cheesy goodness


    Dog loves his smoker, lol

    Yep, it got hit hard

    Another slice.  Would have been perfect, except I had to take a bite, lol

    Well, there it is!  Flank steak tomorrow.
  8. YUM!! Looks great!! :drool
    I would love that Mac and cheese recipe to fix!
    Hopefully I can get my smoker going next week and do q view of my first smoke:yahoo:
    Really bad sinus infection right now.

    Sorry to hear you're under the weather. Get well soon.

    I'll dig up the recipe (or link to it) and add in my wife's mods. It's good stuff. There's a good amount of Gouda in it, and it really takes the smoke well.
