Bread and Ribs - Success!

Yesterday we made two loaves of bread on the egg and then let the temperature drop a bit and put on ribs. I coated them first with a dry rub and some mustard and then cooked them indirect at 300° for an hour and a half before adding some sweet potatoes to the foil on the plate setter. The ribs were done in three hours; actually the thermapen wavered between 199 and 207. Then I brushed them with some ready-made barbecue sauce while they were resting. They were out of this world; I was afraid they would be dry but they weren't at all. My son said they were the best ribs he's ever tasted. I asked if he was tempted to get an egg himself, but he said no, he could just come over and use ours!

Thanks, everyone, for the tips and guidance!

    I am very glad the rib method worked for you - it never failed me.

  • The sweet potatoes were great; I had them in for about an hour and a half. They were slightly charred on the bottom but good anyway. There was a pool of drippings in the foil that helped flavor them, too.

    That was a very easy way of doing ribs. In the past I've stuck them in a crockpot with a little barbecue sauce and cooked them most of the afternoon. These were dryer but still juicy and very flavorful. I used spicy mustard instead of yellow over the rub because that's all I had, but it worked very well. I do like easy recipes, especially if they taste this good!
