Putting frozen baby backs on the egg?

edited July 2012 in EggHead Forum
I have an extra rack of baby backs that I froze from a 3 pack from Sam's club. I removed membrane already before I froze them. Forgot to set them out last night so they are of course still frozen solid. Would need to put them on in a few hours for dinner tonight but they will almost certainly still be frozen by the time they go on the egg. 

Will this work? Will they hold rub? Any thoughts?

    If you have a cast iron griddle, lay the ribs on it.  They will defrost quickly due to the heat transfer.  You may need to occasionally heat the grid up under some warm water.  Our granite counter tops are a huge heat sink that I use for just that purpose.
    Mama always said, Grilling was like a box of chocolates.  You never know what you're gonna get.
  • They will defrost in warm water in under 10 minutes. I did 2 racks for my inlaws this week and they were defrosted, rubbed and on the egg in 10 min

    Water is the trick

    Thanks guys.  I had just told my wife 15 mins ago that we couldn't have ribs tonight, because I forgot to lay them out last night.

    On my way to the freezer right now.  We usually alternate Sunday nights between ribs and filets, so thanks to the knowledge here we won't have to break our routine.

    Just remember that depending on the temperature of the water you could start the Sous Vide process.  I doubt it would make any difference though.

    The Cen-Tex Smoker doesn't see you talking about Sous Vide. Only thing worse could be if you mentioned bourbon. B-)

    I don't know your longevity here but the sous-vide topic is one that generates quite bit of conversation (all good). Yes, this thread could take a hard right turn-and all in the name of....
    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.

    I'm all good. I'm on a sous vide break (but cooking a nice piece of Halibut in mine tonight before searing on the egg) 

    If you left them in too long, it would essentially hot tub them a little which is no biggie. 10 minutes isn't going to make a difference though

    As for bourbon.................well I'll leave that alone too.............for now

    Just joined the group.  My wife just had to have a BGE (apparently for me to cook on).  She found a used one at a great price.  So here I am.
