    Don't think they would have lasted long enough for a picture around here. They look fantastic!

    They look good. Did you calibrate the dome thermometer?

    Cover your plate setter with HDAF. You will thank me later...all else looks great. B)

    Looks like you nailed it. One tip might be to foil the edges of your grid...about the last 4 or 5 inches on each helps prevent burning or overcooking the last rib or two that hang over the opening of the platesetter.

    Steve, thanks for the heads up. I had no idea a calibration may be required. whats the best way to go about doing that?

    Boiling water! When the water is boiling dip the tip of your thermometer into it and should read in 210 - 212 range.

    Good Luck

    Just boil some water and put the tip in, wear a glove. If it doesn't read 210 or close there is a nut on the back, grab the nut with an adjustable wrench and turn the dial to the right temp.

    CWM would say "nice ribbies"

    In the first pic there is foil on top of the platesetter and none in the second pic. Good idea to srap it in foil to keep it relatively clean.

    Nice cook

    They look great! One thought is if you are only making 2 racks, you could cut them in half ahead of time to keep the ends from hanging over the plate setter. However, some people like em a little extra chewy.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Jason, You are 100% correct...I realized that soon after i took the second picture and went ahead and cut them in half..Thanks for the tip!
