I am frustrated! Today I tried ribs for the third time on the BGE. The set-up was a pizza stone(no platesetter for the large) on one grid and the ribs on a raised grid with a drip pan in between. There was about an inch maybe an inch and a half between the stone and the fire ring. The temp ranged 300-350 and they cooked about five hours. They were charred on the outside but they were still pretty tender. Also, a little dry. I know sugar in a rub burns but I don't know how they could be that burnt with such a small gap for the heat and smoke to escape. There was no direct cooking. I was not very happy with the end result. I want better ribs. They cost too much for a lot of experimenting just to end up in the trash. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. I have been on several of y'alls websites, Tim M's and TNW's, but I still don't know where I'm going wrong. Oh yeah, they were babybacks.
