Couldn't make it to the gathering but I did wear my official SMF t-shirt during the smoke. I'm just patting myself on the back here because my wife finally approved of my ribs thanks to the info on this forum. The weekend consisted of the rack of ribs, a fatty (for breakfast the next day), chicken breast, fresh steamed blue crabs and fresh raw oysters. Thanks everyone!! On a side note, I buy my ribs in 'bulk' at the Sam's store then when I get home I apply the rub and seal them individually in the vacuum sealer. I'm pretty green to smoking but this worked good.
