Well, I am finally going to attempt my first ribs. I am using JSlots technique out of the Eggtoberfest cookbook. THey are all rubbed up and in the fridge as we speak. Any suggestions...

  • Squeeze,
    make sure that you cook them at 200-250 for at least 3 hours. I get the fire going until dome temp = 300 then throw on 3-4 chunks of wood -- I like hickory for pork -- Shut the top vent off and bottom just barely open to bring the temp down to 200-225 -- cook for an hour on each side then wrap in foil an cook for at least another hour -- the foil keeps them from drying out -- tasty flavor and falling off the bones. enjoy

    They are great! Just make sure you follow the directions.

    Hammer,
    This is using the higher heat method right? Not the low, then foil method...

  • Well I read JSlots recipe and he calls for higher heat -- 375 -- As I live in Alabama and would be banned from cooking again if I cooked ribs that hot, I will never know if this method works. Please post the results.

    mktimber,
    LOL, while I haven't read the JSLOT method I'd like to see it. OTOH since I've been cooking the Tyson 12% injected baby backs - in fact I have a rack rubbed for tomorrow - I have had far better success using bricks on edge plus indirect at 310 to 320. Seems like the higher temp gets that injected solution moving and cooked out of the meat. I used to complain about the injected ones, but was back to Wally World today for 5 more racks of Tysons to have in reserve.

    mktimber,
    I too am in ALabama...by way of Michigan, so I should not lose my Southern Card for cooking at a higher temp should I?

    Make sure that is the updated version, Kevin. I had modified the temps somewhat and I don't think they made it into Bill's cookbook. Temps should be 325° or so instead of 350-375°. Let me know if you have any other questions![p]Jim

    JSlot,[p]I used the recipe in the BGE "Cookbook for Eggheads" special Eggtoberfest Edition. I did use 375 as the target temp. I cooked 2 slabs, one with Butt Rub and the other Dizzy Dust and one venison backstrap. I followed the instructions exactly. My wife said that the ribs were the most flavorful she has ever had. I guess the Egg is very forgiving. Thanks for the recipe! I'll try 325 next time.

    JSlot,
    THanks. You think inverting a platesetter would work instead of the two grate setup? Tammy just ogt in from Atlanta and she stopped by Eggquarters and got me a large table for Valentines day. That was pretty awesome.

    JSlot, where can I find your recipe?

  • Squeeze,
    I would be careful. If the wrong people find that you are cooking ribs above 300 things could get ugly. You might be able to appease them with a rib or two when they are done.

    Squeeze,
    I used the 375 temp. J Slot now apparently recommends the lower temps, based on his reply. He's never lead me wrong with his recipes; so next time I'll use the lower temps.
    They sure were good though!

    I use the inverted plate setter, Kevin.[p]Jim

    The recipe is in Bill Wise's cookbook. I'll try and post the link. If my copying doesn't work, it's on The Whiz's website.[p]Jim

    Ribs are on, chugging away at 325. Put a little apple wood in for some smoke. It is cold and rainy so these ribs should hit the spot. Going to do twice baked potato's with them and have some turtle cheesecake for dessert. Will post some pics later. Thanks for the help Jim! [p]-Kevin
