Cooking ribs...

I'm trying the foil method today. 3 hours indirect at 225-250 and then 1 hour foiled back then back on for 1 hour indirect while applying sauce. My question is - How many slabs of ribs do you put in one foil pack? Just one or can you put two in the same? Thanks!


  • Just one slab, meat side down. Some folks put a *tiny* amount of honey and brown sugar in with them.

    Don't foil until the bark is set. If the bark scraps off easily when you touch the ribs, wait.

  • I am a newbie and am doing ribs tomorrow, too. forgive my stupidity, but, what is the "bark" of a rib? How do I know if it is set?
  • you can put them all in one foil pan if you want. the steam has no idea how many ribs are in there with it ;)
