    What an awesome weekend... the weather was great, no vehicle maintenance was needed, Saturday was my grandson's 8th birthday party, and Sunday was all mine! Of course, you can probably guess what I chose to do...

    I fired up the CG and loaded it with 4 racks of spare ribs, then fired up the ECB ...using RO briquets this time... and loaded it with a big ol' fatty and the trimmings from the ribs. I did the ribs using the 3-2-1 method... they turned out awesome! The fatty was stuffed with hard boiled egg, sharp cheese, scallions and some diced up leftover ham... that was a hit to say the least! The rib trimmings are for future use in chili, Mom-Mom's dirty rice, spaghetti sauce, etc...

    I was REALLY impressed with that li'l ECB... what a fuel efficient workhorse! I finally got a handle on getting the temps under control by figuring out where to adjust my mods I put into it, plus the RO briquets really helped. It held a steady 250 all day long and I only refueled it once.

    Sorry for the lack of Q-view, I have given up on that until I can get a camera that doesn't suck out loud. Every shot I took was either overexposed, out of focus, or just plain washed out. There are no adjustments on the cheap-assed thing, ya' just point and shoot... actually more like point and pray... [​IMG]

    Stay tuned...

    Tell me about the kid pix... I have 12 grandkids now and we are showered with pictures daily from their mommies.

    I have thousands of dollars "invested" in Nikon stuff... all film though. I used to shoot auto racing and still occasionally shoot musicians... blues artists mostly. I have my sights set on a Nikon digital body that I can use my lenses with... lotsa bux for what I want...
