I don't foil anything I cook. I pull the membrane from the back and rub them with whatever rub I am going to use and throw them on the Egg until they are done. Gets a good bark, ribs are tender and everyone loves them. If I am saucing then I will put sauce on for the last 30 or so minutes.
Foiling has been discussed ad nauseum and as everyone else mentions it is basically steaming/braising the ribs which helps the ribs cook faster and some will say that it helps with tenderness. However, I have never had any problem's with tenderness and in friendly competitions with friends and family my ribs have always come out on top against people who foil, cook on gassers, charcoal, oven and pretty much every other method.
All of that being said, try both ways and fifure out which you like best. There are as many ways to cook ribs as there are people who enjoy eating them and the most important thing is that you like eating what you are pulling off of your Egg. Good luck and enjoy!
About how many hours do you cook them Duganboy? What temp?
Looks wonderful.. Nice .357 too
I like mine turbo. 2hours at 350 indirect. Membrane removed of course. Cook until they bend then about 20 minutes more. Family likes these the best!
