Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

BB Ribs

It would be hard to count the number of racks of BB ribs I've cooked on my MBGE. Tonight's was the best.

I no longer bother to attempt to strip the membrane on the backside. Damn me if you will, but I don't think it makes any difference. I no longer use mustard to get the rub to adhere. It adheres just fine w/o it. My rub of choice lately (and tonight) is Ad Hoc Sweet & Spicy BBQ Rub, which I purchased at Williams Sonoma. Not sure it matters a lot what rub you use. Rubbed (both sides) a few hours before and let it rest in the fridge. Cooked indirect at 250° for 2 hours w/o messing with it. Wrapped in HD foil and added maybe an ounce of apple juice and 1/2 oz Bourbon and wrapped tight. Back on at 250° for 90 minutes. Unwrapped and saved the juices. Put the ribs back, removing the tray so they were direct but elevated and kicked it up to about 300°. Added a couple of Tbls of hoisin and a squirt of Siracha and mopped this on both sides of the rack for maybe 30-45 minutes.

OMG. I'm just sayin'
