I decided to try beef back ribs for the first time and got them all prepared after using the search feature to read all about ways to cook them. I woke up thsi morning and went to the market and bought some, came home and put mustard on them and some rub and in the fridge they went.

I went out to my XL and I could not open the thing!, uh oh! I had left it going the other night and was afraid I had melted the gasket. Back to the search feature and then popped in some starters in the top and in the bottom vents and when it got a little over 400 degrees, it opened just as many had said it would. the gaskets were almost completely intact except for two small places that I guess were holding it tightly closed.

I put the beef backs on and know that it will be later tonight due to the time it took to open the egg but hey that is the way it goes.

THANKS AGAIN, to all you wonderful fellow eggers for the knowledge and experience you post here.. it has saved me numerous times and now I say, THANK YOU AGAIN...

    That's what the forum is for...

    Beef ribs are great, just don't over cook them.

    Take some pictures of your cook and let us know how it turns out.

  • Okay, they have been on about one hour now, you can se int he pics the two small places near the front where the gasket was stuck and melted together.

    This forum is a great source of information. Glad you found what you are looking for in the archives. Those beef ribs look good. Are you going to cook them at the Gulf Coast Eggfest?
  • Bob. I have not decided what to cook yet. Ineed to go ahead and sign up and get me some shirts, those look awesome!

    I made some awesome burgers the other day I may try or might do ribs, wondering what to do considering the time...I am looking forward to it...
