Want to make sure and send 2010 out in style (the year I was introduced to BGE)...so did a baby back rib cook today.

Thanks Car Wash Mike, you're always remembered in my house! Have switched to Dizzy Pig rubs and really like them. Dizzy Dust used here.

Total cook time was 6 hours...here's how they looked halfway through.

Time to finish with a light coating of Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory & Maple Sugar.

My "finishing" trick is to put ribs in warmed cooler for at least 30 minutes. Gets the ribs nice and sticky and even more tender.

Vegetables were baby portabella mushrooms, red & yellow peppers, green zuchini and red onion. Marinate for two hours in half cup of EVOO & balsamic vinegar. Cook for 20 minutes at 300 degrees.

Frozen margaritas to make sure this is a well balanced meal!

    Verry Nice ribs ! and full dinner menu !
    Happy new year !
  • Alright.....this might be a dumb question.....but how does one "warm" a cooler?
  • Put very warm water (just short of boiling) directly in the cooler for about a half hour (of course empty out the water before adding the ribs). You can also do it by adding a bottle of very warm water to the cooler and keeping it in there while the ribs "rest".

    This is a great way to keep meat warm when you are taking the food to someone else's house.

    Warming the cooler may be overkill...but that's what being an egghead is all about!

    Looks great! That's a nice tip on the rib rest. It also gives you the chance to prepare something else. Love veggies on the egg and those look great. I prefer my 'rita on the rocks...frozen give me an "ice cream headache" cuz I drink too fast :P


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
