Just a suggestion for easier but cook em in the oven at home then throw em on the grill later.

Wouldnt that work? Never done em in the oven im not sure if it would dry em out....i know someone here has tried it though!

or those 2 little words:

crock pot!

It's mostly about heat control. Don't build to big a fire, and a good rub won't burn unless there is a lot of sugar in ti. Also watch for paprika. It burns at a bit lower temp than other spices.

As far as other sauce, Sweet baby Rays is great on ribs. Sticky Fingers makes a pretty good sauce, so is John Boy and Billy's Grillin' sauce.

Call me more crazy than a pet raccoon, but I just wonder what would happen if ya took a rack of rids off, loose tent, for about 20 min. and food saver them and in the cooler? Think ya might end up with JELLO ribs? (No sauce. Dry rub all the way) Would the food saver draw the moisture to the out side with the other juice from the rib and produce a tender but not over sauced rack ? I'm going to try it! If it works, its my method! Never had luck indirect, or direct on a kettle. I just don't think there is enough space from coals to grate. We will see. As most know I'm a sauce on the side, no water pan, no foil direct lump kind of guy!

I'm just tryin' to figure out what the hell you're talkin' 'bout quotin' what I'm talkin' 'bout??? (my confused face)

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

The doing them in the oven and finishing them on the grill thing is a recipe I got out of a "Secret Resteraunt Recipes Cookbook" before I was a smoker head. Wrap them in foil with a little bbq sauce and cook them at 300 for 3 hours. Take them out, sauce em and throw em on a grill for a few. They come falling of the bone tender. That one was from Tony Romas. My youngest daughter actually prefers them to smoked ribs...go figure..

By the by..there's also a recipe for KFC bisquits that's really good.

When i cook em in the park it usually takes around 45 minutes or so i think. Cooking in the oven is probaly not gonna work for me, as i go to the park alot on fridays after work ... Id burn too much daylight waiting for them to cook inside when i could be outside drinking beer.

So are ribs a multiple flip item? I know when i cook like steak or burgers i try and stick to the one flip rule. With ribs do you flip alot and keep adding the mop as you flip?

Depends on how hot your fire is. I only turn mine once before the sauce phase. About 30 to 40 minutes on bone side, then 20 or so on the meat side, then sauce a couple of times a side flipping every 2 to 3 minutes. You know when ribs are done by running a pair of tongs length wise about half way to the middle of the rack meat side down. Pick up the rack and if it bends 90* toward the ground, they're done.

and dont forget...put them to the left or right of the fire... not directly over the flames! If you got a camera get some pics!

Grillin Ribs @ Dreamland

One of the formerly great rib joints in the world is Dreamland BBQ in Tuscaloosa (Jerusalem Heights, actually), Alabama where the pit was tended by Big John Bishop. Big John could flat cook some ribs and would sell no rib before it was ready and the ribs were ready when Big John said they were ready. Alas, Big John is no longer with us.

Dreamland now cooks their ribs over high heat for about an hour - not the same, but thats the recipe.

I've cooked them directly over the flames (babybacks only) but it helps if you have a grill with an adjustable grate. Takes about an hour from start to finish.
