We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

    Hope it goes well. Make sure the ribs are close to passing the bend test before saucing. If they are not quite folding over, give them some more time out of the foil, and then put on pre-heated sauce when they are just coming apart. Give the sauce a few minutes ooze together.

    I made a few racks that were the worst of both worlds. Meat not cooked enough, and still tough, covered by sweet sauce that had partially burnt, and become bitter by the time I took the racks off. Actually, no worse than a few of the now gone rib joints in my area, but nothing I care to repeat.

    Will do that ,nothing worse than wasting five hours for burnt tasting ribs.

    Don't worry about getting different temps from the Maverick and the dome therm. 10 or 15 degrees either way from 250 only means the time to finish will be a little longer or shorter. If the dome temp is holding pretty stable, just let them go.

    I haven't foiled my ribs for years. But when I did, I mixed enough apple juice w. honey or maple syrup so that the meat side down ribs were simmering in a  sweet fluid. I stopped because on one occasion, I left the ribs in the sugary solution too long, and the ribs turned into a sort of pork taffy. Edible, but not what i wanted.

    Honestly, a good rack of spare ribs can be done w. nothing more than salt and pepper, oak or hickory for smoke, and 6 hours in an Egg at dome 250.  Everything beyond that is icing on the cake.
