Almost hurricane like ribs

Southern Oregon is good for a thunderstorm here and there but what I saw last night was the worst wind and rain I’ve seen in the almost 30 years I’ve lived here. And of course it happened about 30 minutes after I put the ribs in the WSM!
Just one rack of Baby Backs and some chicken thighs. Rubbed with a mix of Kosmos and Meat Church with some cherry and hickory. 3B942402-2B76-488F-BC63-53684132750C.jpeg I believe someone on this site recommended using the heat shield to cover the water pan? Great suggestion! Didn’t use water on this cook.

I checked radar earlier and this storm was not in the forecast but it came in fast and furious.

D11B1CFD-E489-4F7E-8EB1-274FA77BAF0A.jpeg I removed the ribs and wrapped in butcher paper to rest after about 4 hours. Chicken was on and WSM heated up to 350 to crisp the skin.

Chicken was juicy as could be. Outside temps went from 100 degrees at time ribs went on to 70 degrees during storm. Even though WSM was under a cover she still got a nice bath due to wind. Crazy cook!

I haven't seen a better looking rib picture in quite some time. Rib perfection if you ask me. They look superb!!! Well done!

Richard great looking ribs and chicken. I am use to seeing your great backyard and nature shots as part of your post but this was a little different. It reminded me of this post I started last year. I think this one makes the list!

That’s a great thread! I was under a cover and the WSM was already doing it’s thing so I can’t complain too much!
