    <p />EggerinMO,
    My favorite thing to do is stick the probe thru a corner of the meat, so it protrudes on one end. You want the tip to be several inches from the meat, and not over the direct fire. You do not want the probe to touch the grate as it will throw off your reading.[p]Cheers!

    Car Wash Mike,[p]Teams turn in babybacks, loinbacks and spare ribs..... I guess it comes down to what you're comfortable with and what works.
    For me, I'd pick spares everytime.... whether for competition or home eatin.[p]John

    Smoked Signals,
    Thanks Doug. Those were what we cooked for the Jack. They were pretty tasty, but the team liked them a lot better than the judges this time :>(
