Got a new egg a few days ago.. Man am I ever going to have fun with this thing. Everytime I see it I want to go over and kneel in respect to my new "KING"!![p]Used the Rib directions in my cookbook/manual. It says cook for 45min to an hour, so I did. They are chewy like shoe leather. That tells me they are undercooked. As I read some of the post in this forum I noticed everyone is cooking ribs for 3hrs. Why does this cookbook suggest 45min? Is it possible to get ribs cooked in 45min @ 300deg?[p]Thanks for your input. This is a great site! Talk to you later in the Forum.
