Smoked ribs & Instant pot

wow, so I smoked 4 racks at 200-225F for 3hrs, then thought instead of fooling, I cut them up smaller and used the instant pot to steam with apple cider vinegar for 20mins to tenderize. Added bbq sauce as well. Afterwards, more bbq sauce and put direct on large Egg at 400F for 5mins more. Beet tender smoked ribs I’ve had!!

    I wouldn't have thought to do them that way.   Glad they turned out the way you like!


    Next time, pics or it didn't happen ;)

    Before taking possession of my BGE, I would slow cook ribs on a baking sheet in the oven at 250 for a few hours, then wrap for a bit, and then unwrap and transfer to the gas grill with sauce long enough for that to firm up a bit. Not as good as the BGE, but they weren't bad and I didn't have a better point of reference to know any better.

    I like it! Just got my IP a couple of days ago, though I've had a stovetop PC for a while. Wonder if 2 hrs in the egg, and 30 minutes in the IP would do the same thing. Ribs in 2 1/2+ hrs? Might be worth a try.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I did this with beef short ribs on Sunday.  Added some red wine and beef broth    Turned out real good.

    i have both also.  Typically, people will start them in the IP to speed up the 3-2 part of the 3-2-1 ribs, then finish them on a grill, oven, or egg for the "1" part of the 3-2-1 to develop the bark.   

    I only used IP once for ribs because a prefer a more traditional BBQ rib, tender, juicy, but stays on the bone.  IP will give you the "fall of the bone" consistency that a lot of people like.  My wife and kids loved them and they were easy for them to eat.  Personally, I still prefer the BGE for ribs, but it was nice making a rack of ribs in about 1 hour on a weeknight after work.
