Karl, those look really good.  I wanted to point you to some info if you are looking for a hanging kit and can't find the weber one for the 18.  There is a link that I posted on this post to Gateway rack.


It is really nice and includes hooks.
I am not a collector, but I do have a small collection.

Thank you for this very timely post with lots of good tips.  Coincidentally, I did almost this exact cook yesterday. 

3 racks of baby backs, trimmed, halved, rubbed with Swamp Boys Rub (thank you again, @Rub), and hooked.
Approx 2/3 charcoal ring of Cowboy lump, maple wood, and a small chimney full of lit lump.Left to hang for two hours before saucing with Swamp Boys sauce, and foiling with a small amount of apple juice and back on for another hour.Just before serving I unwrapped and put them back on for another 15 minutes.This was my most successful attempt at ribs to date.  I really enjoyed the taste and texture imparted by hanging direct over coals.  Thanks for looking.

Your ribs look great Charlie.👍
I totally forgot to wrap mine in the end. And I didn't realize it until I looked at your post. Lol.😅 I was in a hurry to eat I guess.

Thanks Jeff for the link to the gateway rack post. I may have to look into one of those after xmas.

Nice ribs Charlie. Looks like you nailed the tenderness. I like to use some butter, brown sugar and honey at the wrap.

I like the hogs in heat. I have used it on a couple of pork chops and now on the ribs too.
When I do this again a couple of things I would change.
 When I rotate the ribs I'm going to turn them over also. They seemed a little dry on the bottom edge. So half the time they will face up and the other half of the time face down and I won't roll them. I think I will use a traditional rib rack and rotate 180°every half hour. I will also remember to wrap them for the last hour.
