looking for some assistance in the future. i bought my BGE large about a month ago. i cooked, or attempted to cook one rack of ribs only to have them be to done and dry.
Prior to cooking I looked at many sites and even the forum for advice so i could make the perfect ribs. Here are the details so any advice would be appreciated,
placed dry rub on front and back the night before, sealed in plastic wrap and reynold wrap and placed in the refrigerator. I got the BGE going the next day and got my temp to 250 degrees, which seemed to be a good temp to use.
I used direct heat and placed hickory chunks in the BGE lump coal, placed the rack directly on the grate with bone down and monitored the temp to ensure 250 heat. After 3 hours, thinking the ribs would take 4 or 5, i checked the ribs and noticed the top looked pretty good than looked at the bottom and it was burnt looking. i removed the ribs, let sit for 15 minutes or so and tried eating some ribs knowing the bottom was burnt. The meat on the top pulled away from the bone nicely but the bottom was too done and dry.
Sorry for the dissertation but I was very disappointed in the outcome and am frustrated, thoughts... thanks!
