Update - 8 of the 17 sides have been smoked (one was ate fresh so we have 8 more to do tomorrow night).
Here are some pictures from the evening.
I had to get creative to get my 3 sides in my fridge once I did the rinse.
Rib racks loaded
My WSM and my buddies freshly built UDS
Flying Old Glory
Homemade walnut handles that another buddy made for me...
One hour into the cook - had to take a sneak peak
Cooling - mix of cherry and hickory gave it some good color (looks a little dark with the lighting in my garage and the flash on my camera)
60ish pounds or a little less than 1/3 of what we have to smoke
Slicing these up tomorrow and smoke the other 8 sides.
