Mom, Sis and Nephew came over for dinner with me and Mrs. Burn-It.  Had some trouble maintaining temp today but it turned out great anyway.  Next weekend I am going to spend some time getting to know my WSM better.

The ribs look great. Nice meal you put together there. Until you get a coating on the inside of your WSM they tend to run a little hot. Most of the time if I'm not using my Guru, I keep the top vent 100% open, 2 bottom vents shut, 1 bottom vent open about 20%. I try to keep the vent on the bottom that's cracked open away from the wind.

Ribs looks Great and where is your helper.

Like Al said they do run hot the 1st few smokes and then settle in.

You'll have enter a throw down when ever they do them, you can plate food real good. Do a search for throw downs if you do not know what I am typing about.

Nice Job!!!

Nice job! Also remember to catch the temps on the way up.... as soon as the WSM lid therm hits 200° damp it down like Al said. If the temps get away from you and climb high it is really, really hard to get them to come back down.

Had some left over ribs.  Put the meat in some lentil soup with a little BBQ sauce for dinner tonight.  Not too bad, if I do say so myself. 

I must say, I am not fond of moving and emptying the water pan. 

Finally - Thanks to everyone here as SMF.  Great advice and feedback.  I look forward to a long and happy smoking relationship with everyone here.  Who knows . . . I may be able help some future newbies.

A great way to do that is to put a kitchen trash bag in a 5 gallon bucket, put your COLD ashes in the bag, then dump your water onto the ashes. The next day you have a fairly solid lump of ash that can be tossed in the trash can. If your are foiling your water pan before each use you can also toss the foil in as well and just wipe the pan with some paper towels.
