    A Different Method (for me) to do ribs. Rib Wing

    It's on the The BBQ Bible web site, but not Steve's take. I just picked up a rack of St. Louis ribs. Might give this a whirl. Anyone do this?


    Steven Raichlen is behind the times. This is just another name for Blasphemy Ribs, which have been discussed on the Pit since I got here in 2017.

    Read all about it here:


    And here at the website Mark mgaretz made:


    My experience doing it with baby/loin back ribs is that they take 2.5 to 3 hours. I've not tried it with spares.

    I've not done it in some time, but the times I did, the wife and kids all liked it better than the normal way of doing ribs, because all sides of each rib have rub and bark on them, as well as sauce if using sauce. I don't always do it as they take more space on the grill when done like that, and I am usually doing 3 to 5 slabs of ribs at a time. Laid out like this I can fit at most 2 racks of ribs on my kettle with the SNS and an elevated grate. If using an elevated grate for a portion of them, be sure to rotate the ribs top to bottom halfway through the cook, to get it all done at the same time.

      I posted this in another thread today - these char siu ribs using Meathead's recipe on the free side are done basically using the same technique, cut into individual bones. This kinda gives you an idea of how many can fit on a 22" kettle using the SNS. Not sure what you are smoking on. This was 2 racks of baby/loin back split between the main grate and a "hover grill".

        Like the looks of ribs in the before pic, would like to see the Aft pic.
        The grill does not look like a pellet grill?
        Did you pair them with PBR?

        bbqLuv I added an after picture of that cook just for your benefit!

        The grill being used is a Weber Performer Deluxe with a SNS.

        I most definitely did not pair them with PBR. Most likely they were paired with an American Blonde, a Strawberry Berlinerweisse, or an English Porter, based on what I most likely had on tap at the time of this cook in 2020.

        Thank you so much.
        You Done Good!

      I've never done them. Learn something new everyday. And that's saying something for me.


        I've done Blasphemy Ribs with both spares and BBs with equal success. 2.5hrs every time at 225deg on my kettles. As Jim points out mgaretz came up with this method 4 years ago. You can even up this with wrapping them in bacon that I think SwampDonkeyzBBQ did. Cook at 275 for 2.5hrs. Then set the sauce for an additional 10min.

          Correction on that, mgaretz did not come up with a method. That essentially goes back eons in China (Char Siu ribs). He just uses a plain sauce instead of the Char Siu.

        SwampDonkeyzBBQ version I did.

          Those look outstanding!!

        I just posted this comment on Barbecue Bible ..... will see if Raichlen acknowledges Mark came up with "rib wings" long before Raichlen did.

        Mark Garetz, part of Pitmaster Club, came up with this approach at least 4 years ago and called it Blasphemy Ribs. The recipe is published on Amazing Ribs and on Mark's own website, Blasphemy Ribs.

          I heard back from Larry and he has published an addition to his original story that mentions Blasphemy Ribs. Now we just need to get that into Raichlen’s site.

          Funny, my comment on Barbecue Bible still hasn't been approved

        I’ve done these several times following mgaretz recipe and they turned out awesome each time!!

          Another success, pass a few over to me.

        I gotta visit this site more often.


          Wibs. Love them no matter how you cook them. Smoke on!


            Mark's Blasphemy Ribs rock. My family loves them. I've done them with SLC and babybacks, and both turn out great.

            Thanks again, mgaretz Mark, for the recipe. I hope you get the credit you deserve.



              I have cooked individual ribs for years, going back to 1974, country-style ribs that are boiled in PBR, no less, and seasoned with Adolf's meat tenderizer.
              Does that count?


                Gotta watch those recipe poachers....


                  Hope this resolves well. People who aren't paying attention like to "invent" things and take credit without doing the research.


                    Can I just be the negative nabob who says that Rib Wings is the dumbest name in all of BBQ? And it's a high bar to be the dumbest.

                      I'll be the second. I was expecting something fancy, like a rack that was half-Frenched and twisted into a pretzel shape or something. 😜

                  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.

                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                  The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
