rib membrane- take it off?

edited 2:17PM in EggHead Forum
New to this game. thinking of doing some ribs today. wondering, do you remove the membrane from the back of the ribs or leave it on. If you take it off will they dry out? Also, over direct heat or indirect?
Thanks for any advice!

    You can see "1" way of doing it on my website in the cooks far as direct or indirect...either way, in time YOU will decide which method you prefer....HTH[p]Wess

  • chrisb,
    Yes, take the membrane off. I do my ribs the 3/1/1.5 method at about 250 degrees - indirect (3) hours then wrap in foil ,add a little apple juice and cook (1) hour and then remove from foil and cook direct 1 to 1.5 hours. [p]Let us know how they turn out.
