Wow about the grate. Ya just gotta hate it when something like that happens. Thats the kind of ribs that people go nuts over. Nice work. Did you keep the temps the same for the chicken or did you finish the ribs and then put the chicken on afterwards. My chicken is getting close but I can't seem to find a happy place. LOL, I will be sitting right here in my living room tomorrow night while the game is on. Better leave early tomorrow . oughtta be a full house. I hope ya have a great time and enjoy.
