Boiled Ribs!?

Watching Diner, Drive-Ins, and Dives.  What the heck; baby back ribs simmered for two hours and then coated in sauce.  Yuk.

    There are many fans of **** food. Drive past any Steak and Shake.

    Eggers do not boil their ribs!

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    My sister  boils her ribs and everytime I facepalm and say no thanks I'm not hungry because they are always tough and rubbery.  I tried to teach her low and slow but she is hard headed.

    If you started boiling ribs when this thread started, they would just be getting good now.

    She's not boiling them long enough.

    Braised ribs in a flavorful liquid until tender and then sauced and finished under a broiler are quite good. I used to do this all the time pre-BGE and they were fantastic. My definition for fantastic has changed now that I've made them in the egg. 

    I don't know that I'd ever make them that way before, but before I could afford my egg, it was better than nothing!

    Without ANY drama I did an indirect rib cook yesterday.  Dome temp went above 300 ONCE while usually closer to 280, and indirect, at that.

    Maybe 4 1/2 hours on the grill in a standing rib rack holding onlly 4 slabs.  

    Fall-off-the-bone tender without being boiled/mushy.
