First time ribs - results

Very pleased with the results...easily the best baby back ribs I've ever done. Cooked 250 dome for five hours. Very tender and moist. I did learn a few things. If the slab extends beyond the edge of the plate setter, the ends of the ribs cook faster. Simple solution: quality control samples for the chef! I did two slabs: one with just a dry rub, the other with a dry rub and finished on one half with a commercial BBQ sauce and on the other half with a homemade rub from; ultimately I preferred the dry rub only, but maybe that is just the style I'm used to here in Texas.

    Looks great. Of the few cooks I've done on the egg so far, ribs have been my favorite.

    Place foil under the ribs hanging over the PS....or eat them which is always good.
