First, thanks to those who provided some input on my first rib experience. I ended up tossing the full slabs untrimmed on the BBQ in a rack since I ran short of time to trim them like I wanted.[p]The biggest lesson I learned from this cook is: Playing poker, drinking large volumes of beer and cooking ribs is a bad combination. Ended up not checking the ribs enough so they came out a bit over done. The meat was 206 when I pulled them, ooops. Still tasted pretty darn good, but some of them were a little dry.[p]The next lession (shoulda know better on this one), when your remote check thermometer stops sending/recieving a signal in the house, you better get up and walk outside to check on things! If I would have done this the rib temp and overcooking issue would have been minimized.[p]Oh well, I'll remember this for next time. And all wasn't lost, the ribs still were pretty good, as were the chicken and hot links. I made a couple bucks in the card game and the fridge still has plenty of donated quality beer in it! And the ribs not being perfect, well, just gives me plenty of excuse to cook some more sooner rather than later!
