    That is one of two 9lb slabs of ribs that went on the smoker at 8. There will be no after pictures you can all imagine an empty plate. Because of the size I'm cutting them in half and using my rib rack - 3 hours at 250, wrap in foil for an hour with a little cranberry juice, take out of foil...

After having lunch I go down to check to see if there are any leaks and 4 ft away is another pinhole leak that...
