Dinner Tonight

Hi all -[p]Here's the list for tonight's dinner - my first on the egg. Actually did pork chops last night too, but those were easy. Today is my first "low and slow". Any suggestions to my process welcome.[p]1. Baby-Back Ribs. I have 1.5 racks, rubbed down with JJ's rub two days ago. This morning, I brushed them with oil, and sprinkled on some more rub. Gonna try the 3/1/1.5 method over firebricks (have extra grid on top of bricks, drippan with applejuice below). They are currently on at 250, have turned them once. Using some apple and mesquite chunks for flavor.[p]Spraying the ribs with a bit of apple juice when I flip every 45 min or so for the first 3 hours.[p]Will wrap in foil for the 1 hour session - same temp of 250.[p]For the last 1.5 hours, will remove from foil, cook 45 min over bricks. For the last 45 minutes, will remove firebricks, and go direct. Planning to baste with a little bone-sucking sauce to finish it off.[p]2. Sweet Potatoes. Added a pat of butter, wrapped in foil, and plan to let these cook for about 2.5 hours at 250 as the ribs finish up. This sound about right? Never cooked these on a grill, and I figure 1 hour at 400 in the oven equals about 2.5 hours at 250 on the egg.[p]3. Corn. Turned back the husks, brushed on melted butter, sprinkled with Lowry's, Pepper Blend, and a little lemon. Put the husks back, wrapped in foil. Planning to cook for about 45 minutes at 250. This sound right?[p]4. Grilled bread. Texas Toast - brushed with butter, little bit of garlic powder, about 1 minutes per side until toasted.[p]This is the first meal on the egg - trying to WOW the missus. Thanks a ton!![p]- Mike[p]
