My first ribs...

Our freezer door did not get shut all the way the other night. Luckily we noticed 24 hrs later. The bad news was quite a few items had defrosted. So I had to cook several racks of ribs today. I have cooked on the BGE before but never ribs. They turned out great. Here are some pics:

5 racks on the large


more ribs on the small


Coming off the large BGE


Ready to eat


and thanks to Celtic Wolf for the advice on freezing all of the leftover cooked ribs.

    Thanks for all the comments. I have decided you Eggers are nuts if you think all that hard work is fun!!! :laugh: I would rather Kim work his butt off while I watch him cook; while I am drinking a glass of wine(or 2). That was a LONG HOT day :woohoo: ;) :laugh:
