Baby Back Ribs and Peach Cobbler

My first attempt at Baby Back Ribs. Used a conglomeration of others recipes.

Fresh baby backs with the membrane removed




On the egg at 225


After 2 hours


Coated with a mixture of honey, molasses, chili sauce, hot sauce, red wine vinegar, apple juice, apple cider vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Cooked over low heat until it reduced about half. No recipe – I just put stuff in ‘til it tasted good!! Wrapped the ribs in foil and put back on the egg at 325 (gotta love the Digi Q for temp control.)


After another 2 hours at 325 – yum!


Now for dessert

Found a peach cobbler recipe here:

My second time to cook this on the egg – the first time I didn’t chronicle it, but it was SOOO good that I figured I’d capture it this time.

Fresh Peaches




Add sugar and lemon juice (to prevent browning)


Peaches on top of butter and batter


Sugar and cinnamon


On the egg at 350


45 minutes later! Wow!!


Didn’t last long……


Now we’re all sitting around stuffed – and happy! :)

    Looks incredible!! Unbelievable for a first time with ribs. Do you have any leftovers?:)

    Cooked 3 slabs - 5 people - all ate half a slab with one half slab left over. We are all stuffed - peach cobbler put us 'over the edge.'

    Great Job! Looks good. One suggestion, for accurate pit temps don't clip the probe to the grate. Only the use the probe tree or clip it to the meat probe. When you clip it to the grate the grate will be hotter than the air around it. :)

    Good tip - it musta worked out, though. I calibrated my egg thermo and the digi q last night and the pit was reading about 15-20 degrees below the dome -
    Still, you are correct and thanks for the tip! One other cook the pit was reading WAY too high and I bet it was the very reason you mention.

    Great forum - great tips. Thanks
