First Time Ribs: Huge Success

Cooked ribs for the first time on Saturday, there was some pressure on me as well since it was the first time entertaining guest with my Egg. I used the Today Show recipe posted here on 5/25 (KC style rub and sauce) and TimM's 3/1/1.5 method. It must of been luck but my distributor called the day before with plate setters in stock (waited 5 weeks), it worked great. The ribs were exactly, I mean exactly the way the Today Show rib expert said they should be, "the meat should give way with only the slightest bit of hesistancy to the teeth." TimM, thank you, thank you and a thank you to JJ as well, I rubbed up two of the baby backs with your rub and they were equally as awesome as the KC rub; the KC rub was more spicy, more twang. My guest, former in-laws from my former marriage, contemplated having another daughter to get me back in the family after that meal.[p]Tom

    ColoradoCook, Well, you proved that all ribs can eventually be done in a respectable manner. That last sentence is a classic.
