Bobby Flay and

I was looking at recipes for ribs and Bobby Flay always seems to say cook ribs for 2 hours at 225-250.  WTF??

Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    i have some ribs on right now that are being cooked at 225 .
    they are beef ribs but that temp 225 is usually how i cook them unless i turbo them

    Yeah i dont see anything wrong with 225...but it will take way longer than 2 hours for them to be ready! 2 hours at 225 is cray cray.

    He boils them first.   =))

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    He starts them direct before going indirect for the 2 hours.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    Hmm... That's weird. Perhaps you'll just have to give the recipe a try!

    Just read the link. Yep, he goes direct over hot coals meat side down for 10 minutes. That would do it. He also says after going indirect 225* it will be about 2 hours or til tender (think toothpick test). And then for non-ceramics he says to go back to direct bone side down when saucing. I'm guessing he says that because he doesn't want someone trying to remove a hot plate setter at his recommendation and getting sued. If I would do this I would go back to direct when saucing. Seems like an interesting technique.

    Depends on the cut of the ribs. Here in Canuckistan we get Dutch or Danish back ribs that come from pygmy pigs, I'm sure. They are cutest little things, not much meat and they are always done in 2 to 2 and 1/2 hours at low pit temps. Here are some I called gopher ribs.....
