A Word to Fellow Egger's

The egg is like owning Real Estate, it is very forgiving. I put on 6 racks of baby backs for 12 guests. 3-2-1 method. they are supposed to be here at 6pm for dinner. So they show up at 6:45 and want to drink for an hour. Cool, just kept them in foil for a while longer. Took them out an some of the racks were, fall off the bone. Ok, glazed them and put them on a tray under foil. The rest were not as done as I like so I left them on the grill and went inside to join the guests. When they were done to my liking, I glazed them and went inside for a few more adult beverages. when the rest were done, I added them to the pile. Only 8 people showed up and 6 racks were GONE. GRRR...ATE RIBS! ! ! I feel like the Alfred E. Newman of "Q". "What Me Worry" Oh I have had my share of flops but you really have to work at it to SCREW UP.

    MAC,[p]I will certainly agree the 3-2-1 method has many options. I did a few racks for a 3-2-1 recently and the time in the foil seemed a little too much for me (baby backs) - they were really fall'n off the bone, so I normally shoot for 1 hr in foil and I know if the guests are late, I can stretch it another hour. You said you glazed them, what do you mean by that? I take them out of foil and go direct and glaze on a layer of sauce for an hour. Is that what you mean?[p]Tim
  • MAC,
    What is the 3-2-1 you speak about and do you have a recipie for the glaze. I am a baby at this. Just got mine over the weekend. I have done the simple stuff, chicken, steak and burgers. Going all out tonight with Pork Chops. I have not even looked in the recipie file yet. I work for Sundown and well that is the one site he wont mind me being on. LOL. I have stuck to basic seasonings so I would like to try some ribs this weekend. Advice?

    I like the 3-2-1 method,the direct method,the indrect method,Mac I just plain love ribs.I make a sauce with yellow mustard,vinegar,brown sugar and hamburger dill pickles that is good on ribs.

    Tim M,
    Thats exactly what I mean. I just add Home made BBQ sauce to the ribs and wait for it to thicken "like a glaze".
