Ribs

Looking at some recipes for ribs and found one that called for coating the top of the ribs with about 1/4 inch of brown sugar. When they cook the theory is the the sugar will create a glaze.

Anyone done anything like this? If so what were the results? I think that I am going to try it this weekend unless others have tried with no success.

    BTW I cook my ribs indirect for 2 hours at 300 degrees then I pour some melted butter and sprinkle brown sugar on both sides of my ribs and double wrap in HDAF and cook for 1 1/2 hrs at 300...they fall off the bone...I hardly ever sauce them...
    :woohoo: ;) :)

    Hi Kim,

    Thanks! I'll try your rib method this weekend. It's one of the least complicated I've seen. I'll check out the chicken in the Mini too.

    I gotta get going on the Mini Woo. We'll need it for our week of camping in August. The Mini was buried behind a pile of building materials until yesterday and I needed to measure the height from the top of the fire ring to the felt. (It's exactly 1".)
