New Egger and first rib cook pictures

Been lurking (researching and learning) for a while and decided to finally put a post up. We purchased a XL on the 11th of Dec and did ribs for the first cook, a Turkey for Christmas, with a couple of burgers and chicken as well. We have used it 5-6 times already and haven't had it a month yet. I love the way it cooks and it is super easy to use and regulate the temps. I have had Weber grills, water smokers, and an offset in the past. I have already started to justify a medium to go with the XL.
Pics of the ribs:

DFMT setting, forgot to get one of the bottom vent - it was only about 3/8" to 1/2"

Dome temp, grate was 250-260 and I never had to touch it once I was happy with the stability

Pulled at 9 pm, sauced the last hour with Sweet Baby Rays.

  • the ribs look awesome but I am amazed at that clean egg. I bought mine used so I never saw one white on the inside!
  • Looks like you have the rib thing figured out. Good job!
  • Nice job! Baby backs are my very favorite thing to cook on the egg. Looks like you nailed it.

    If you want them to glisten a little bit, mix 2/3 Sweet Baby Rays to 1/3 honey. Makes guests salivate a little more. It doesn't change the taste that much, and it makes them a little stickier.

  • DGb - I forgot about that. I used to do that for competition turn ins, but don't normally do it at home. I did find if you mix the honey with the SBR's Raspberry Chipolte it would take what little bit of heat that was there out.
  • Great idea! I have yet to try the SBR's Raspberry Chipolte.

    By the way, your ribs are beautiful just like they are, and your photo quality is fantastic too. That a Nikon? Keep the pix coming, and welcome to the forum.

  • I can assure you, that is not a case of beginner's luck!
    Your cooking adventure is going to be a lot of fun! And quite tasty too! Welcome to the world of BGE!

    The XL is great for ribs. I think your on the right track. A medium is a great combo with the XL.

  • Dog, those are some sweet looking ribs and they've inspired me to smoke some up on New Years Day.

    DGb - Kodak Easy Share Z740. We bought it after Katrina to document house damage.
  • Thanks for the reply's.

    As a couple have guessed, I did competition BBQ for a couple of years; mainly at the Smokin' Blues in Hammond, Louisiana when we still lived over there. I was a team member on the pro side for 3 yrs, then decided to try "backyard" and use the event as a family gathering.

    I sent 2 racks with my wife tonight for her to share at work. She is a RN at Cook Children's in Fort Worth and had to work tonight. These could have went a little longer, but I wanted to make sure she could bring them with her - sorry no pictures of these.
  • Nice wibbies.

    XL is outstanding - I think it is a law that you have to have something smaller to geaux with the XL. B)
  • Hey I'm just down the road from you in Aledo!
