So this weekend I filled up the BGE with 3 racks of baby back ribs - first time trying those since I got my Egg. I was a bit nervous, as I had read a ton of horror stories, but they turned out great! Followed Car Wash Mike's technique for the most part. Rubbed the ribs and let em sit for about an hour, while I got the BGE to around 230-240. I don't have a vertical rack yet, so I just used the plate setter to divert the heat. Put all the ribs bone side down, with a few chunks of applewood on the coals. After about 3-1/2 hours, I cranked the heat up to about 250-260 for another hour, then sauced them and let that cook for another 30 minutes. Ribs turned out great! Tender, not quite fall-off-the-bone, but I don't think that's a necessary criteria. Tender and tasteful is the important stuff!
One thing I wan't happy with - the underside (bone side) ended up pretty much black...I don't know how I could have deflected the heat any different to prevent that - any ideas? I do have a grid extender, but didn't figure that would help much with ribs...
Got a lot of input from the forum here - you guys are great, thanks!
