    At least once a month year around. For them to be healthy for you you eat all the odd numbered ribs first and then the even numbered one...works for me!

    Easily once a month.  Just put some BBs on a couple hours ago as a matter of fact.  Nothing better on a cold dreary fall Saturday than drinking Shiner, watching college football and cooking ribs on the Egg!

    I've had my Egg for 5 months and have cooked spare ribs (trimmed into St. Louis cut) twice and baby back ribs once.  So 3 times in 5 months.  I've cooked briskets twice and a pork butt once.  Those are the only low and slows I've done but the last brisket and last ribs I've done were excellent so I think I'm getting the hang of it.  Of course the fact that the last brisket and last ribs I've done were the first using the Stoker BBQ controller might have had something to do with it. :)

    My wife isn't a fan either, but on my "rib night" she fixes a some favorite meal she likes that I don't particularly care for and we are both happy and been doing this for years! Besides that means I get the whole rack to myself and get to enjoy left over nuked ribs for a snack for a few days after!

    I'd say about once every two months. I change things up pretty good.

    I made some tonight. Untrimmed spares, 325ish, indirect, about 2.5hrs, cherry chunks for as smoke No plated shots, not worth starting another thread for. At least now this ribs thread has some ribs in it, so it did happen!

    Once a month and only when my stepson is around, It takes discipline not to cook them more frequently.
