Finally - a decent rack of pork ribs

After years of trying, I finally cooked a damn good rack of pork back ribs. Instead of indirect and/or foiling, I cooked them direct. My main grid is on bolts and sets even with the gaskets. I fastened the extended grid on top of that. Then got the heat to about 225-235 and put them on. Half of the rack was just salt and pepper, the other half was salt,pepper plus an initial coating of Butch's sauce. I further basted this half when it looked like it needed it with Bone Suckin Sauce. I occasionally flipped the 1/2 racks at 30 or 60 minute intervals. Sprayed with apple juice if I thought they needed it. Four hours and some temp variations later the Thermopen said 195. [p]They were perfectly cooked IMHO. The half with Bone Suckin Sauce tasted like candy. They were too sweet to turn in at a competition but the texture would have been right on.[p]Now I'm eager to see if I can repeat this cook.[p]Toy Man

    <p />Toy Man,
    Sounds like a different cook. Glad they turned out for you. I never thought about direct. I quit foiling a long time ago. But still always go indirect. Sounds like a plan for the weekend.[p]Mike
