    OK, got the ribs in the smoker, I'm goin to buy rib racks for sure. Nearly had to stuff the four racks in there, just enough room without crowdin to much. Course theres nearly 20 pounds of em.

    Didn't even have room for my wings! Guess I'll just have to do them tom.

    This smoke will give me a chance to see if my new thermal mass device works or not (ok fancy name for 4 bricks).

    So, hang on, here we go!

    Looking forward to the Q-view and hearing how your bricks worked out.

    I was at Home Depot yesterday debating on getting a nice sized patio block that would fit great on the bottom rack of the smoker, 8x14x1.5 or something like that [​IMG].

    44 cent a piece concrete pavers. Worked really well, helped hold temps up while I had the door open get em out to wrap in foil. Temp came back up faster to. Gettin ready to post the q-View, everybody is miserable at this point.

    Here they are just goin in. Rubbed em down last night with yeller mustard and a good coating of Southern Comfort rub. You can see my high tech thermal devices in the bottom of the smoke box.


    Here's at the 3 hour mark, gettin ready to foil.


    Here they are after the last hour. Gettin ready for sauce.


    The finished ribs with sauce. We had Delicous potatoes, Corn bread Corn and Homemade bread to go with them.


    All in all a very good meal.
