This was my first attempt at ribs on my Large. 5.5 hours indirect, 225 degrees. I had them in a rack until saucing time. [p]My neighbor said, "These are the best damn ribs I have ever had." [p]bge.jpg


  • I noticed your virgin EGG and platesetter. If you want to keep the platesetter from getting all gummed up from drippings that get thick after a while.....many of us use foil on the platesetter to help slow this down. Ribs look mm goooood!!!

    toomsdpt,[p]I sent you an e-mail. It was a spur of the moment cook, so I didn't have a tremendous amount of prep time. Just cooked at a stabilized 225 in a rack without opening the lid until hour 4. Used Emeril spices b/c I was out of everything else and used Stubb's bbq sauce at the end.[p]I'm not a pro, just a fan of bbq.

  • ccraig4604,[p]Man they look good!! Award winning. My only suggestion, since you have such a nice, new grill. I would cover the plate setter with heavy foil to reduce the amount of gunk buldup. Just my anal, fastidious opinion.[p]Howard

  • Howard,[p]Thanks for the tip. That's a great idea. I've been using tin baking pans for my beer can chicken, but didn't do anything for the ribs.[p]ccraig4604
