Rib dilemma

I love ribs....SWMBO not so much. What was a similar cooking profile to ribs that I can cook for my wife while cooking ribs for myself?
LBGE & SBGE.  Central Texas.

    I do chicken quarters. I put them on half way through the cook.

    I would suggest something like possum or coon. Just make sure it's something really bad. Next time ribs will be most appreciated.

    Sounds like the perfect time for the "We need another BGE" conversation-need the flexibility etc-beyond that-if you cook ribs with the low&slow method then you can smoke anything at the lower temps adjusting the start-time to align with guesstimated rib finish time.  FWIW-

    maybe ask her what she likes and dislikes about ribs, her tastes may not be the same as yours. when i cook ribs for a crowd i cook fall apart sweet ribs, for myself and family i cook dry ribs. this is a good recipe for some that dont like a dryer cooked rib.
