6 hour Ribs

Had some ribs last night at a friends not cooked on a GE.  Tough and chewy even through they were cooked 8 hours.  Sent him this picture of my last ribs with my own "Fred's" sauce.

Just got an email wanting to know where he can buy an egg.  LOL

    Sounds like the cook and not the cooker. You can make great ribs on any smoker/grill. Adding an egg would be great addition though.
  • Try doing them 3-2-1 next time @ 225 indirect with applewood smoke. PERFECT!!

    I had a great success letting them marinade in the fridge for 4 hours and then applying a dry rub.
    Cook indirect around 250 for 2 hours uncovered.. spritzing after 30 mins and every 15 min there after.  Then 1 hour wrapped with a cup of apple juice in the aluminum pan.  Then 1 hour dwelling in the shell with some glaze applied.( covered also )    4 hours total time.  Let rest for 10 minutes after the cook, cut and eat.  Use your favorite sauce at that point.  Very tender and a good pull.  ( This is how I cook my baby backs )

    +1 on 3-2-1. They turn out nice and tender.  I do add an additional 15-20 at high heat to crisp em up.
