There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Good Afternoon Fellow Eggheads I am extremely new to the BGE I tried baby back ribs yesterday and the taste was awesome.  However, they seemed a little tough and were very difficult to get off of the bone.  I prepared them as follows: BGE @ 250 degrees Ribs covered with RUB on night before.  I cooked the ribs for 3 hours in a rib rack sitting in a drip pan then poured about 1/2 inch of apple juice and covered with foil and cooked another hour.  Lastly I uncovered the ribs removed from rack and pan basted heavily with BBQ sauce and cooked another hour. This Totaled 5 hours at 250 degrees.  I was expecting them to fall off of the bone tender but it could not have been further from that. As I said in the beginning VERY NEW 3rd cooking any help would be appreciated.  I am curious if having the rack sitting in a drip pan was part of the issue being shielded from the indirect heat.  Please HELP
