    I've had a MES for several years, but have wanted to try it old school for a while. I bought a Weber kettle for the Fourth of July weekend, and broke it in by grilling some chicken, steaks and assorted sides over the past week.

    Last night I set up a trial smoke to see how it was going to go, and prepped a couple of slabs of baby backs with my homemade rub:


    Set out this morning by making a half ring of Kingsford Competition briquettes with a few chunks of apple wood mixed in.

    Grill hot and ribs ready:

    Here's the wings, just a smile brine and smoke. Crisped the skins a bit on the old gas grill:


    And the ribs after spritzing with an apple juice/brown sugar mix for the last hour an a half, ready to come off the grill:
