C'mon Greg, help the guy out. Prove that ceramics aren't over rated
Do you know how to grill ribs? that will work.
If he's never (or rarely) used the egg, then I doubt that he has the accessories (like a plate setter) to make the fire indirect, and easier for you and the ways that you know how to smoke ribs.
But, all is not lost. A bunch of people here can tell you how they cook ribs on a Weber kettle. It's basically the same.
C'mon guys, it's been so long since I've cooked on a kettle, I'd hate to ruin Gordon and friend's ribs.
