Hey Steel if your in San Diego (and im sure you are) If you like to fish my old man use to take me catfishin at Lake Hodges. There are some monters in there. Then again you can always go on a day boat at the landing and fish for the really good stuff. db

When I bought my first WSM the flimsy door really bothered me.
But after cooking on it I quickly got over it.
Good luck and don't forget the pics!

Well ribs been on for bout 30 minutes. Its readin 240 at the top, all 3 vents at the bottom are opened all the way, Is that normal??? Gonna do the Texas crutch at 2 hours for about 30 min or so. Well gotta go get a case of PBR to tie me over till these babies are done. Using hickory chunks got bout 4 chunks on it, i figured that should be enough. Still workin on gettin some pics for yall.

Don't wonder off too far with 3 vents open wide, your asking for trouble! I'd do like Puff said and close them down a bit!

Well first cook is over. All i can say is wow. It held 250 at the top the whole time, vents ended up being bout 1/4 of the way open. Sauced the last 20 minutes with famous daves and a little honey, they came out perfect, best ive had in forever. Only got 2 pics with my phone it was 2 dark to see the finished product. So i did the have a cold one while your waiting, and a cold one turned into a few and so on. Had a great smoke ring , took bout 4 hours. So i think im hooked and im planing on a pork butt next ( NC style ofcourse) I use to go to Lexington BBQ all the time when i was in High school so thats my fav.
