When cooking the ribs in aluminum foil during the 3-2-1.5 method....can you wrap more than one slab in the foil, or do they have to be in separate foil packages???
Car Wash Mike
RLA, My eggsperience has been wrap as many as you want. Don't have any holes in the foil. The point is to boil the fat out and make them more tender. I usually use a aluminum pan and just wrap foil around the top of it when doing spares.[p]CWM
I agree with CWM, however most of the time I cook the rib slabs in a rib rack,then I spray on a little apple juice and wrap each slab separately so they will stand up in the rack.They're great anywhich way! Bob
RLA,[p]I wouldn't cook them at 3-2-1.5 as that is 6.5 hrs. That is a bit more than is needed. I like to use 3-1-1.5 or 3-1.5-1 depending how much firmness you want to them. The longer after the foil (the center number) they are cooking direct, the more firm the meat becomes. The foil part of the cook steams them and they get pretty moist and the direct cook at the end drys them and firms the meat some. I also use it to burn on the sauce.[p]Here they are after 1 hr in foil.[p]Tim M
With big fat spares, the 3-2-1 was perfect...as far as doneness. That was at 250. At least that was my experience with these particular spare ribs (about 4 pounds a slab).[p]Cheers!!

Nature Boy,[p]I hadn't thought about spares because I have not tried them in foil - maybe this summer. An extra hr would probably not hurt, I just wasn't sure it was needed. The one nice part of the foil cook is that the time in foil can be 1 hr or 2 hrs with little difference (IMHO) and is good for parties when your guest show up late - just leave them in foil until the guest show, then go direct and eat in 1 hr or less.[p]What a mess that snow made the other day! We had 200+ cars wrecked on I-95 in this county and the one to the north after 2" of snow - we got 3" total! It took my wife 6hrs to get here from Richmond which is only 30 mi south. Sure glad I wasn't with her stuck in the car for 6hr![p]
RLA,[p]Sorry, forgot part of your question. Yes, you can add more than one slab but its not easy. I cut a slab in half and put both in foil as the other picture shows. You cloud place them in an aluminum pan and cover it with foil too.[p]Enjoy[p]Tim
Amazing what happens when it snows around here. This area has folks from Alaska and Tibet, as well as folks from Florida. I saw a story about that big pileup on 95. I heard people were getting out of their cars and running into the woods while they watched everybody piling up. We got 1.5 inches, and schools were closed the following day even though everything had melted by 10:30 am.
Good Sunday to ya.
