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!

First time Ribs

Hi Everyone,
Really appreciate this forum.

Tried my first ribs today and used Car Wash Mike's Recipe on a Large Egg. Took me about 5.5 hours. Tried to follow the directions to the T and had some guests say they were the best ribs they had ever eaten. Used Dizzy Dust and apple wood chips. Probably could have used more wood but I'm not complaining.


An hour or two in misting with 50/50 apple juice and cider vinegar each hour.


Used Bullseye BBQ sauce (brown suger and hickory)


Forgot to get the dinner plate shot as we were serving but managed a side shot.


This was the first time I've ever smoked anything this long and enjoyed the whole experience. Really adds an extra element to having guests over.

Thank you!

    Oh yes, forgot the setup!

    Was cooking indirect at 200-220 three hours.
    Then 250 and 275 to finish with sauce.

    Spider with 13" stone (indirect) and adjustable grill. Inverted a rib rack on top.
    Used some HD foil for a drip pan.
