My favorite thing to cook. Makes everyone think I'm a master chef when I do baby backs.

Wicked Good charcoal, biggest chunks on the bottom.

Followed by the smallest pieces on top..

Added the ribs.. medium Egg, if I roll them up they fit much easier :)

After 1 hour,.. every hour misted with apple juice/apple cider vinegar mix.

Coated with a 50/50 mix of Blues Hog regular and Blues Hog Tennessee Red then back on the Egg for 30 minutes.

    That roll up idea....is a first for me......I think is great......looks like you could have fitted a third one on the .medium....Congrats!!
  • Klag,

    I may try a rolled up rack on my mini... i just did 3 racks sunday on my large and they cooked for 6.0 hrs @ 250 dome temp talking about good mmmmmmm...... :laugh:
  • Nice space saver and good lookin' grub! I can't wait to try this.
  • This might be a dumb question but how do you get the started lit with them buried? I usually drop them on top and get my fire going on top. I have read that many folks start from the bottom though.
  • Yep, 3 racks will fit easily when rolled up!

    when cooked that way, do they lay flat when they're done and unrolled? and what size egg are the 3 on?

    Will a mini run for 6 hours at 250? To get a rolled up rack on it I think the setup would be:
    remove fire ring and insert fire brick
    place CI skillet on fire brick
    grate on skillet
    ribs on rack
    I might have to try that one.

    I lit the little starter thingies right after I took that picture, then piled the rest of the coals/wood on after it was already lit.

    Medium will fit 3 rolled up racks. I don't think they lay flat when finished, but I slice them into individual ribs and put onto a big platter for serving. Makes it easier to eat, IMO.
