1st time grilling turbo ribs!

I made St. Louis style ribs using a homemade Kansas City rub and a homemade Kansas City Sauce. These ribs were easily the best I've ever tasted! I made some baby back ribs that were professionally precooked - just in case mine were no good - well - the ones that I made were just as good, if not better! I just love to cook on this egg!

    It's hard to beat the turbo ribs. I'm a fan.

    Those ribs are absolutely perfect looking. Outstanding job sir.

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    I'm doing a low and slow rib cook for a party tomorrow...but next time, I'll try me some turbo.  Just to compare.

    Thanks for the pics!

    Details of the cook? I'm doing turbo for the first time tomorrow. I've always done low and slow. Those look great, Ken

    I followed SJ21XDC for the directions.  But I used the AR rig.  Wrapped the stone in foil and went Indirect - temp at stabilized 350.  Applied rub all over ribs.  Put the ribs on the egg bones down for one hour.  Then flipped it - so meat down for 45 minutes.  Then flipped it again and only lightly used some rib sauce and I pulled them off after about 20 minutes - their temp was about 175.  Here's the rib rub - (I got this online): 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup paprika, 1 tbsp black paper, 1 tbsp salt, 1 tbsp chili powder, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tsp cayenne. Combine everything and keep it in an air tight container. (This makes a lot, but it keeps well)  The rib sauce (again I got this online):  I cup ketchup, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp paprika, 1 tbsp chili powder, 2 cloves garlic, minced, 1 tsp cayenne, 1 tbsp molasses, 1 dollup grape jelly. Heat oil in a saucepan and add the garlic.  Saute it until it turns brown.  Then add all the other ingredients and reduce the heat.  Simmer it for 15 minutes until thickened.  This will keep in your frig for awhile.  I've used this rub and sauce on chicken too - it's good.

    Another way for a Turbo Ribs: Baby Back Turbo Ribs (No flip) 350 indirect for 1hr 40 min. Before cooking: Pull membrane , rub, mustard, rub. Put on at 350 and leave the hell alone for about that time. This is called turbo ribs and I will never go back to 4 and 5 hour ribs. Note: with or w/o mustard works .. I like Bad Byron's Butt Rub / I like cherry & pecan mix for wood. If you want sauce: opened 15 min early and sauce. I like the sauce on the table.

    Yes - definitely pull membrane - I forgot to add that - do you think that would work on St. Louis style too instead of Baby Back? I like the idea of no flipping.
