Memphis ribs by Pam Lolley

In the June 2013 Southern Living magazine is a recipe for Smoky Sweet Ribs.
 http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/ultimate-smoky-sweet-ribs-50400000128267/

Turned out very good.  My wife made the rub, mop, and sauce following the recipe.  I followed the instructions, including foiling the ribs with the mop after 3.5 hours, for another hour or so.  Very tender and sweet with some heat!

  • These look great!  Man I'm itching to cook some ribs.

  • Thanks John!  Cooking ribs on the BGE is my favorite.  I was really pleased how well these turned out, way different than my normal ribs.  It was great to have my wife make the rub and all from fresh stuff!  I have a second batch of ribs on the BGE right now using a different rub and sacue and technique.  I'm planning on bringing a sampler platter in to work Monday.

    A sampler plate you say?  Man your coworkers are going to love you.

    I've bookmarked the recipe you posted.  Looks easy - definitely worth a shot.

    Thanks Dave, bookmarked. How does it compare with SBR?

  • The second batch of ribs was made to be dryer and tangy-er.  Tender but with more bite, not as sweet or hot but with more delicate nuances of flavor.  "Neighbors By Choice" rub and sauce is truly excellent, I plan to replenish my stock next Saturday at the farmer's market in Brentwood, TN. 

    Both ribs cooked today are the best I have ever made, the BGE was kept at 230 for the entire time.  I added more lump after the first batch and allowed a half hour for things to clear and stabilize.  It is so amazing how the BGE keeps a steady temp with only rare, minor adjustments.  I have been cooking 11 hours today and I am ready for a shower!

    With the help of a co-worker bringing in chips, potato salad and beans, I feed a full meal to 9 at work, the full staff at the time (normally 10).  They liked the smokey sweet the best, and so did I.  I think I didn't treat the second batch as carefully as the first with respect to rub density, cooking time, and sauce application.
