Baby Backs 2.5-1.5-.5

My first shot at baby back ribs went pretty well.  I used the 2.5-1.5-.5 method and got a good "stick".  I tried a new mix for the braise, 2 cups apple juice, 1 cup Vernor's Ginger Ale and 1/2 cup Apple Cider vinegar.  The Vernor's really added a "kick" to the braise.  My wife prefers "fall off the bone" so next time I'll use 3-2-1.  Try the Vernor's it was great!imageimage

    Looks great!  What temp are you cooking at?  They look pretty fall off the bone in the pic...I see a bone sticking out in the second pic ;)

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I had it pegged at 250 for the first phase.  Up to 300 for braise and back down to 250 for finish.  That one bone you see had actually pierced the foil.  The meat pulled back but still stuck pretty well. :)

    How do you keep the ribs from falling off the page?
