It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

rib membrane- take it off?

edited 10:21AM 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.
