Baby Back Ribs

I have a large egg. My grandchildren are coming to visit this week end and want BBR done on the egg. Can two slabs off BBR fit on the egg. I do not have a rack. Thanks in advance. Phil

    Yes. Two fit fine. I need a rib rack or another grid level for 3 or more.
  • I do two on my LBGE all the time. Just make sure that if any portion of the ribs extend beyond your plate setter that you put a piece of foil under that part of the rib. Otherwise, that part will overcook.
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    If you have a roast rack lay the ribs over it.

    Didn't somebody roll ribs up on here recently? Rolled you should get 2-3 racks maybe more on a LGE.

    I usually cut the racks in half which allows for better maneuvering on the grill.
