    I had planned to smoke a rack of spares for the wife & myself for this afternoon, but then we had some jalapeno's in our garden so I thought ABT's, then while I was on SMF this morning I got inspired to try a fattie, which will be my first. Of course you have to have beans with ribs. So here's what we got.

    I trimmed the ribs up a little & plan on putting them on the bottom rack with the fattie & the rib trimmings over them so they will drip on the ribs. Here they are in the smoker.

    Will continue to update throughout the day. I put them in the smoker at noon.

    The probe says the ABT is done, but I'm gonna let it go a little while longer. I stuffed it with provolone & fresh spinach so I think the probe is probably in the stuffing not the meat. I think I'll let it go least 3 hours. The smoker temp is holding at 225 on the bottom rack. Which I guess is about 10-15 degrees below the top rack. Man it's a good thing I put the ABT's in a pan because I put way too much filling in them. I guess we'll just eat them with a spoon. Neighbor's smelled the BBQ & are coming over to help us eat all this food. There bringing beer & wine. Doesn't get any better than that.

    Just pulled off the ABT's. I guess we'll eat them with a fork or spoon. They taste great, just a little messy.

    They all look really good!   I am jealous that you still have a garden to get produce out of.  We were done here in CO over a month ago. 

    Try using the macro function on your camera.  Helps with the focus issue.  Look for a little flower symbol on the camera and select it.   Another method is to back the camera off a little bit and use the zoom.
