First want to say the family likes fall off the bone ribs....
before owning the BGE our rib cook would go something like this.....
- remove membrane add a little garlic power, salt & pepper
- use foil bags or just put ribs in pan covered with foil with sliced onion and beer.
- cook in oven at 350 for about an hour
- remove ribs (falling off the bone) and but on the gas grill with some BBQ sauce to brown.
The ribs were always tender and juicy :)
Now i have an BGE
My first attempt at ribs I followed the 3-2-1 and felt the ribs were overdone and dry:( I also used a rub that was to overpowering which added to the failure.
tried it again this weekend got the baby backs BOGO at Fresh Market
- removed membrane little salt pepper & garlic power
- put on rib rack and cooked indirect @250
on the egg for about 90min.
- foiled and added a little liquid into the foil pocket and back in the rack on the grill for 1 hr.
- removed from foil added sauce and grilled direct to brown up ..about 10 - 15 min
Tried to adjust the cook times down on each step and they were better then my first try but not yet falling off the bone tender and juicy?
should I foil them longer? but then I fear of overcooking? does 1-2-1 make since.
even thought about starting the ribs in the foil with liquid then direct on the grill to brown, but then I assume we won't get any smoke or will I if I go maybe 1 hour in foil then one hour (or until done) direct on grill. Might try this next time...
