    I know the egg had something to do with it but you deserve a cudo also. $300 is a few accessories... Or, 30 cases of PBR.

    Thanks again everyone!!!! .I did make one mistake i've had been practicing on baby backs from Costco and the brand they have has the membrane removed and when i was getting the hand out ribs ready on Sunday not thinking these are from BJ's i did not pull the membrane off until i removed them to foil .i was shocked it pulled all in one piece like lifting a tissue from the box and i think it may have help in the moistness of them because unlike my practice ones i had very little in the dip pan at that point .

    I turbo ribbed this weekend per Mickey. Pulling the membrane at 90 minutes was much easier. Actually didn't taste bad.
