I am just going out to fire up the smoker and start cooking for my sons birthday Q. Seven racks of ribs, two fatties, a dozen bratts and a bunch of non atomic ABT's (anaheim's and yellow's) my kids are whimps. Also six stuffed bell peppers. This is my first smoke of this size, I hope I have not forgot something important. Wish me luck Markeli sorry no pics I dropped my camera on my last all nighter and have not got it fixed yet. I will see if I can get my son to bring his over.
