Great 4th of July feast!

I just got my XL as an early B'day present and smoked my first baby back ribs.  I mixed in a few hand fulls of maple chips in with RO lump for good measure.  I set the Cyber-q to a pit temp of 250 and set the food temp to 203.  It took about 5 1/2 hours and the results were great.  While the ribs were ribin' I took a quick run to the market to get some bacon and a few jalapeños to make a few bacon wrapped cream cheese popers. Even had some time to pop a cast iron skillet corn bread into the oven...  Here are a few Picts...

All set to go...

Ribs after about 2 1/2 hours on the egg....

Ribs ready to go...

Poppers and and corn bread to round out the meal a bit...
