Went and got 4 racks of baby back ribs Friday morning. Took them home - removed the membrane and applied rubs (2 had Bone Suckin Sauce rub, 1 had Raging River and the other had Red Eye Express - Figured I try them all out to see what I like better.
Setup the Egg for 240-250 with Wicked Good Charcoal and Apple and Cherry chunks mixed throughout. After about 45 minutes at 240 - sweet smoke coming out the top I put the 4 racks of BB ribs on. After 3 hours I took a peek and sprayed some apple juice/Jim Beam mixture over the tops of them. At about 4 hours I tried a bend test and they bent and the meat ripped apart. I applied some BBQ sauce to 1/2 of them and cooked for 15 more minutes. Pulled the ribs off the Egg and let them sit under a foil tent for 15 minutes then cut up and served.
As far as taste they were ok with the Raging River being the best followed by the Red Eye Express (A little more spice - pepper). The meat on all of them was not moist and a little tough and dried out - not fall off the bone like I have done many times on the old gasser years back. They all had a nice smoke ring for whatever that is worth.
This is the 4th time I have made ribs on the Egg and they are not worth it. I never like them when I cook them on the Egg. Got 4 new racks in the freezer that are available to whoever wants to come and get them before I chuck them out to make room for other meat.
