Did some Costco ribs this weekend using my new Maverick to monitor. Started off getting my dome temp stable to about 250. Then threw on some hickory and apple chunks and put in the platesetter with a drip pan with water in it. Placed my grid back on with the ET-732. Within about 20 min or so temp came back up to about 245 dome and grid was 225. The ribs were rubbed down with a homemade Memphis rub.
Put the ribs on and kept the temp in the 225 to 235 range the entire cook. Pretty impressed with the egg's ability to maintain temp. Also like the Hi/Lo temp settings on the Maverick with the alarm function. Very useful little device.
After 3 hours I took a peak and they looked great. At the 5 1/4 hour mark I did a toothpick test and they seemed pretty ready... Put on one good coat of Sweet Baby Ray's let them go for 45 more minutes.
Ribs were fantastic. Probably the best I have made. Nice bark, great flavor and firmness. Although, I was a little concerned that I really did not notice much pull back from the bone. Normally do see that and was confused why this batch did not seem to pull back much if at all.
