Sweet and Barky
« on: May 06, 2019, 11:05:32 AM »
So my wife want me to make ribs.  We have this rib place near us and they have a great bark on it and they are just so sweet.

Well I grabbed 2 racks and tried
I did the 2-2-1 method.

I used my WSM used apple wood tossed 3 chunks I think i could of used more.

SPG on the ribs then wrapped them with butter, brown sugar some honey. 

When taking off the bones were falling off

I ran the WSM at 225 to 250ish

I would like your input pls




Then tossed them on the grill for a hour and sauced them.

They were delish but fell short on the bark and sweet tasted.  They were legit fall off the bone

2 hours in the foil is too long in my opinion...
I'll do 3-1.5-.5 if I'm foiling.

You might try no foiling/wrapping at all for a heavier bark......

In that case, just dab on the sauce later in the cook, in several layers to build up to how thick you would like......

The foil will braise the piece and soften the bark buildup, so maybe experiment around a bit without.....

I often do loin backs cooked in foil first, then set out on the grate, saving the sauce/ juice in the foil wrap to carefully pour over the racks several times, maybe ten - fifteen minutes apart, letting it set each time.....building upon the initial bark.......messy, but it works great!!

I Aim to get a little short of "fall off bones" and aim for a good clean " bite off the bone"
"If you want it fancy there is BBQ spray paint at home depot for that. "
    Covered, damper-controlled cooking.....IF YOU PLEASE !!!
