Thanks for the earlier help on temps... these turned out great. Found a recipe I liked in Elizabeth Karmel's book (taming the flame), seemed right for a limited cook time (as I bought these at 4:30p and we ate at 8p). She rubs both sides with fresh lemons, squeezing the juice out, sits for 5 mins, then rubs/wraps for 20 mins, then indirect @ 325 grate level for 1.5-2hrs, saucing w/ 20mins left. I went nearly the full 2hrs and the meat fell off the bone and not overcooked. patting self on the back...woohoo :silly:

    Awesome looking ribs. Glad to hear they came out so good. I will keep this recipe in my little black book just in case I need to cook ribs in a hurry.
  • Great lookin bones! Amazing they turned out so nice for such a quick cook!

    thanks again for the temp tip. Now that I think about it, the first 30 mins was much lower than 325 grate (350ish dome)...lets say the first 30 mins were 250-275 and really smoky- I used 3 chunks of hickory- then had it at 325 for the remaining 1.25 hrs I kept the lid closed until about 30-50 mins left. Other than that this recipe was simple and I think the lemon must have something to do with the tenderness. In Karmel's book she titles this "Bubba's Bunch Barbecued Baby Back Ribs" and says its a variation on ribs (cooked by Bubba's Bunch) that won a Memphis in May Patio Porkers contest.

    The ribs look great. Like the others I always figured low and slow was all you could do with ribs. Guess not huh? Well I'll just keep tryin, mine have not quite been fallin off the bone like I like it.
