It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Country style ribs in foil -- fairly good

I wanted really tender country ribs -- smoked 'em for an hour at 250 indirect, then wrapped 'em in foil for an hour. They were good -- very tasty-- but not as tender as I had hoped for -- maybe country ribs just aren't going to get fork-tender.[p]I cooked them to about 160 internal, which I think is too high. Don't know if that would have made a difference. The ribs were not dry.[p]Still eggsperimenting . . . .

    <p />Prof Dan,
    Me thinks they could have gone a bit more. By 170 they are starting to tender-up purty good, but since they are often cut from the shoulder, they need some time to break down. I like the crust you get without foiling. Here is how I do 'em. [p]Keep on crankin! They are some good eatin.
    Cheers
    Chris

    Nature Boy,[p]Thanks for the tip and the link! I thought I cooked 'em too much, and it turns out it was not enough to break down the tough stuff. [p]

    Prof Dan,
    A common misconception is that dry meat is overcooked. But with shoulder, ribs, brisket (and anything that is loaded with collagen), the melting collagen and rendered fat is what makes the moisture. I kind of think of it as a reintroduction of moisture. Pull it off before the breakdown is complete, and it will feel dry in yo mouf. Leasin dats what I have found. [p]Keep on cookin brutha!
