1st time rib cook. 1st post on this forum

Hi egg heads! 

Today I finally got to do 2 slabs of baby back ribs. My parents are KCBS master judges and I have some tough competition! So today I did my first slabs of ribs on the egg. I must say they turned out fantastic! If there was any difference in these ribs compared to other ribs I have had I must say they are so juicy! Here is how I cooked them.

Mustard base and applied rub. Got the egg stabilized at 250 (I used the pitmaster IQ120 and held the temp within 3 deg the entire cook) Smoked the ribs with apple wood chunks for 3 hours. Applied sauce, brown sugar, and apple juice and wrapped for 1.5 hours. Then took them out of the foil another coat of sauce, and back on the grill for another half hour. 

The ribs pull clean off the bone but do not just fall off. I must say I am so happy with the results. Thanks for all the great info on this site! You guys are great!

    Welcome and nice work! Your ribs look great. I assume you shared some with your folks?
