Help with Ribs

Going to cook ribs for the first time. 2 St Louis racks. Question - direct or indirect? I looked at several of the recipes and they appear to use the direct method at low temperature. I was thinking of indirect at dome temp of 225. Any thoughts would be appreciated.


  • I would go indirect, starting at 225 then gradually raise my temp after 3 hours to 250 then finish at 275.

    I curious Mike, why do you gradually raise the temperature?
  • Just my opinion. Better smoke ring. Your keeping your temp lower keeps the ribs cooler for a longer period of time.
    The higher temp at the end gives a great bark and you can see the rest of the fat rendering out.
    These where cooked this last weekend.
    This was after approx 4 hours.
