had the egg for two weeks, trying ribs again tonight. First batch was my first cook so. they were good but can be better.

tonight - 3 hours at 250, foil and cook for 2 hours (gonna put honey/brown sugar on them then), sauce, and cook for a bit after that. following this recipe http://www.wecookthebooks.com/2011/10/big-green-egg-baby-back-ribs.htm

was gonna try turbo style for the first time but i'm working from home today and don't feel like i need to rush anything ... tho i would like to have a few beers while i cook.

    I really enjoyed their sauce, and I'm thinking I should try the rub now.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe used.

    Just pulled them off the grill 30 minutes after saucing. was hard to get them off as the meat was falling off the bones. these taste amazing. much better than my first attempt. that recipe i used was easy and has produced a winner!

    first time using that rub. very good stuff.

    time to eat!

    They really look good, glad you enjoyed them.
  • Great job!
  • Glad you guys liked the recipe from the blog.  It's a pretty standard approach to ribs.  More than anything trial and error is what it's about.

    I started doing the turbo ribs method. Flat on the grate, indirect at 350 for 1.5 to 2 hours. Pulled, sauced, wrapped in foil (or no foil, both are good) and let sit for about 20 minutes. To me they were better than the 4 - 5 hour cook and took much less time. For the first time I used a 75/25 mixture of Bad Byron's Butt Rub and Turbinado Sugar. Also used Simply Marvelous Rubs. Both very good.

    Those look awesome!  I have cooked a lot of things on my eggs - not ribs, tho.  This has inspired me to try this over the weekend.

  • Ribs are the best on Big Green Egg

    You can really do a lot of different things depending on your rub.

    If you haven't cooked ribs yet you got to get on that for sure.


  • I usually do baby backs but I am thinking of doing some st louis style


  • Done with the 3, into the 2, and can't wait for the finish.
  • We've had our LBGE about 5 weeks and ribs were our first cook. I've never been successful with ribs before, but they were easy and delicious on the BGE.
