    Been fighting a monster head cold since last Tuesday but rallied for race day, Sunday.

    Got to the local Piggly Wiggly last Sat. and was rewarded with  a sale on Baby Backs for $2.50 a pound.  Don't know bout where all Y'all live but that is about 50% off round here.  (I stocked up to the limit of my storage space).

    Picked up a couple bags of Cranberry's also.  Love me some home made Cranberry sauce.

    Thickest rack they had, (And the thickest I've bought so far).

    Built a snake in the 22.5 inch Weber that I figured should run 6 hours.

    Ribs getting close

    Plated up.  The ribs were in the top 3 of my best rib smokes.  Sorry for the mediocre pics.  My place just isn't all that picturesque.  Thanks for looking.  The meal was great, the race result's just O.K. in my book.  Figuring the NASCAR point system for this year is beyond me.

    Nice looking meal . I like the way you did the Ribs in a Roll. I had mentioned that to a poster a while ago...

    Thank you sir.  I use the roll for racks that are too long to keep from covering live coals.  It has worked well for me.

    Here is the Cranberry sauce recipe.  (Per one 12oz. bag)

    1 Bag Cranberries

    1/2 to 3/4 Cup Turbinado sugar

    1/4 Cup water

    1 tspn Vanilla extract.

    Boil water, reduce heat, and stir in sugar till dissolved.  Add Vanilla and mix in berries.

    Keep your heat quite low and stir occasionally till most or all berries are "Popped".

    The berries have natural pectin and will gell as they cool.  You can top with sliced Apricots or golden raisins.

    I don't own a food processor but the Dole site suggest that you can chop your berries.  Probably a big time saver, as it can get time consuming popping the berries.
