    Tender ribs

    Hi everyone. Hopefully everyone is getting ready for Christmas. Can't believe it's almost here. I have a rib question for you guys. I know that the ribs should be pulled off the meat for a proper cook but that is hard for my mom to do. If I cook the ribs longer will they be more fall off the bone? I cook baby backs. Thanks

    Hey Clark. Yes, ribs being so fatty and cartilaginous means cooking longer softens more and makes them more tender and fall apart. A good way of telling when they're 'perfectly' done is here on Meathead's How To Tell When Ribs Are Ready page. Notice the bottom pic of the bend test. That's what to shoot for, oven or smoker.

      Clark I have lots of folks that want fall off the bone ribs and have to serve them beyond the perfect pull. One way I achieve that is to cook them to the right done according to the page Arron mention then wrapping them and give them a nice long nap in the cooler with the rest on the hot side.

          I am so anxious to eat them I forgot to take a picture. Take my word for it they were glorious.

        I almost seems like the rib bones needs to get hot enough for the meat to cook off of it - if that makes any sense.

        You can also do the "tear test" a la Noah's PBC how-to video on ribs to see when they are getting close to done.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
