This past Sunday morning delivered some seriously freaky weather for August. I stepped outside at daylight and the north wind was actually cool. Later that morning, Sabine Lake guide Jerry Norris called to say that he had found calm water to the beach, and the trout were tearing up topwater Super Spook Jr.’s. It doesn’t get much better than that in August. So what did I do? Cranked up the pit and smoked two racks of ribs and a whole chicken, all without breaking a sweat.
