I am cooking pork back  Ribs and Wings for Sunday and not sure the best way to do it .
Ribs should take  at least 3 hours cooking em low and slow and the Wings will take about 40min to 1 hour

I think i know the answer to this but always looking for some help and advice

thoughts ?

    Sounds like a good excuse to get another egg.

    yes but this is an unrealistic option right now .

    How about a multi level rack. The BGE grill extender is pretty reasonable. It's kind of a pain to use but it does work.

    i have one  but the ribs will be cooked at 225 where the wings will be at 350

    i think i figured out what to do .
    I will cook the ribs and then the wings and just have to put the bibs back on for the last  5-10 mins of the wing cook

    Cook the ribs first and FTC them.

    sounds good !! i like that idea

    turbo ribs at 325-350, with wings at the same time?
  • pantsypantspantsypants Posts: 1,191
    yeah i really have no need to turbo the ribs , so i dont think i will .
    I will ftc them and that should be perfect !!

    Just a not ribs are gonna take more than 3 hours. Baby back at 250 from my experience usually got 4.5-5 hours and st Louis style usually a little longer.
  • pantsypantspantsypants Posts: 1,191
    hmm , Those ribs usually take me about 3 to 3.5 hours .

    do you use a rib rack ? ?
  • LitLit Posts: 4,610
    No rib rack just flat on the grate.

    Cook the ribs, FTC 'em, crank up the heat and do the wings. Easy peasy.

    Cook the wings at the same 225 to 250 with the will take about 1.5 to 2 hours, but they turn out just fine...I typically cook my wings at that temp (when I plan ahead that is)

    Have a GREAT day!
