Who needs a rib rack???

This past 4th I did a pulled pork and 2 whole racks of spares (Costo package) in my large BGE. Started the butt the night before,and with 5 hrs to go in my Butt cook I put the ribs on. Didnt use a rib rack, just cut the racks into thirds, moved the Butt over to one end of the grill, and just laid the spares flat, "draped" over each other. No other way to fit them all on an 18" grill. Even tho' they lapped each other, didnt affect the final outcome...all evenly cooked, tender, juicy.....used the 3-1-1 method, using sauce in last 30 min. going direct. Setup....Indirect using firebricks and drip pan. Moral of story....dont worry about packing the spares too tightly (overlapping them) the BGE with its even heating cooks them all evenly. Toss those rib racks!!!...dont need them in an EGG.[p]


  • RLA,
    hehehehe, your climbing my tree now, and thank you for saying they cooked evenly and tender, remember I did 20 of 'em.....LOL
