Some ribs

cooked a few slabs of BB's. Not the best looking slabs to choose from at the store , but they were cheap. BBBR and mopped with Tarheel Tang and glazed with Blues Hog Champ sauce to finish. Don't normally sauce them, but I like to mix it up. They were pretty good. The doneness was pretty close to perfect, but they weren't the best product to begin with. Thanks for lookin!

    Very nice. What kind of raised grid is that and do you know if they make one for a medium?

    Thanks! The mop helps me with color. I usually use Tennessee Red for the mop, but used the new Plowboys product this time. The comp is lighter and a little less sweet. It's a winner.

    It's an off brand product. Something I picked up over the years. Thanks for the kind words.

    @epcotisbest Primo used to offer one that fit the medium(I had one) that is 13 inches. I think they discontinued it. If I recall, it was $30 or so.

    EDIT: it is a Grill Dome accessory, not Primo. They are a little more proud of it now. Also, it's 10 inches across, not 13.

    Thank you for the link. Yeah, I bet that would work just fine. Might just have to order that as soon as my wife calms down about the three Akorn Jrs. and two Blackstone 17s I bought this week. (just one each for me, others for gifts)
    Now, if this raised grid could only help me turn out ribs as nice as @pgprescott  is making.

    Ribs look great to me. Ribs are unlike anything else. When they are good, they are great. When they are bad, they are still very good.

    Great looking ribs. If you cook ribs on two levels like you did, do the juices from the top level drip down onto, and interfere with, the cooking on the lower tier? I assumed this would happen, which is what has put me off doing this in the past.

    Thanks @Stormbringer   
    They didn't seem to be a problem. Not saying something like that couldn't damage the bark, but was not an issue yesterday for me. They took a bit longer for some reason on top and I didn't rotate them at all. I cooked at 250 for several hours and then bumped to 300 when I started the mop. Seems to develop the color better at higher temp with the sugar in the mop.
