Had beer butt chick tonight and eggcelent. Tomorrow, parents are coming over for ribs. Mom and wife want country style ribs and dad wants pork spares. I know how to cook em separately but not together. Been reading about it but can't decide. Don't have time separately. Please help me as this forum already has several times since my birth (BGE) at Christmas?


  • I'd do the spare ribs early - then wrap'm in foil and put in a cooler to rest. Then put on the country ribs timed to come off when you're about ready to eat. When you take the country ribs off - pull out your spare ribs, brush with BBQ sauce and finish direct on the egg

    Plate it up and serve to smiles all around - enjoy.

    jake,[p]I'd suggest starting off by cooking your spares as you normally would... mine usually go 6-7 hours indirect around 250 dome. Two or three hours into your spares cook, add your country style ribs and cook indirect alongside the spares.
    You may need to periodically shift both around to cook evenly and get a good color but you should be able to get both cuts to finish close together.
    If I had to choose, I'd want to the country style to finish first. If they do, just foil them and keep them warm until the spares finish.[p]Good Luck!
