Congratulations on your recent win! I noticed you use Traeger smoker/grills. I have had one for 1 1/2 yrs and really enjoy it. And I have an early version of your book. Just wanted to check – what temp do you cook you ribs at on the Traeger? I assume you use the smoke setting at least for awhile. After some practice, I have had good luck with ribs and chicken as well. I find it is hard to screw up too badly with food on the Traeger and it is so easy too use. But I have found that you need a replacement glow plug handy – they tend to fail.
Thanks and good luck on future events!
