Well, my lovely lady wife decided she wanted Q for her birthday supper... And we all know who gets up before dawn when mamma want Q for her birthday eh? Still... I wouldn't have seen this had I slept in today: Here's the smoker all loaded up and ready to go: The foil pan above the water tray is a bit of an experiment... I've had problems in the past with the country ribs drying out, and my theory is that grease builds up in the water tray and stops evaporation. So the idea is that the foil tray will capture the drippings and prevent this from happening. We'll see how it goes.
