My best ribs yet!

Maybe 4th time is a charm. Did BB ribs tonight. Removed the membrane using the "start in the middle" finger technique (who was it I learned that from? CWM maybe. Whoever, thanks! Worked like a charm!) then rubbed with yellow mustard, sprinkled liberally with Dizzy Dust. Cooked indirect at 270° dome for 5 hrs without even peaking. Opened the dome and they looked loverly! Brushed lightly with Bone Sucking Sauce (Hot) and closed up draft and daisy. Pulled them off 10 minutes later. They were pretty much perfect. Moist and succulent. Tender, but still took a bit of tooth to get the meat off the bone (that's what it's all about, no?).

Thanks to lots of folks for helping with this, most recently Ron B., whose advice to BeerBQ today guided me in my efforts.

    Congrats...not much better than a perfect rack of ribs (brisket maybe)...

    I think the "pull from the middle" method pictorial was courtesy of AZRP.

    Yes. Get the membrane under two fingers in the middle of the slab. Pull up toward each end.

    Stanley, glad it worked out. It's great when the meat resists a little bit, doesnt "fall" off the bone, but is still good and tender.

    I guess it was AZRP who posted a pictorial of this method. Work a finger under the membrane on a meat seam near the middle and prod away, working in as far as you can. Start again from the other side of the same meat seam until your fingers touch, then just work toward both ends from there. Easier (for me anyway) than the start at one end, paper towel method.

    Looking forward to trying that. Were you cooking baby back or spare ribs?

  • Try it without the mustard.

    I think you will be hard pressed to tell the difference.

    Also Blues Hog (straight or mixed with another sauce) will be better than the Bone Sucken. IMHO.
