240 is my magic temp.


i threw a handful of oak pellets in my charcoal nest before i put the ribs on for a little sweet smoke.


a light whisper of smoke. oh man, is this guy good.


good color. nice a juicy. von da pa.


and oldie but a goodie.




nice ring.


good bite. i must say very juicy.


this is not good. better go get another one.


well, i am very proud of myself. i had a problem and i fixed it w/ ya'lls help. i did cook spares instead of bb backs. i raised my temp to 240 on my dial. i did use a heat deflector (pizza pan w/ holes drilled into it). works great. ya'll can call me a sissy drummer if you want because i use a heat deflector. its cool. great cooks adapt to their cookers. i have accomplish this w/ Ursula. thats right. who da man. sparky da man. :cool:

Great job Spark....You should put that wheel back on for fine tuning....or listen to strangers! ahahahahah It should be open but there are times when you will need a little more control!

Love how well you and Ursula is getting along!
