    Fast n hot ribs!!!

    Went fast and hot with these spare ribs last night , used about 1.5 chimneys of kbb , closed bottom vents,removed water pan and left lid open flipping and rotating every 5 minutes , I moped them about every 15 minutes. These only took me 55 minutes and they were absolutely fantastic, I got more compliments on them than when I go low n slow, rubbed with a little mmd and bbbr.

    I'll assume you opened the bottom vents, versus closed them? Or did the open lid allow enough oxygen into the fire with the bottom vent closed?

    Back in the day (like 1989) I remember cooking ribs hot and fast on an old H burner Sunbeam gas grill from K-mart, as I didn't know how else to cook them. I've not tried it since getting an offset around 1996.

      Those Johnsonville beer brats, I put on at the end and closed the lid for those

    Repeating "Phan-Phreakin-Tastic" and those Sawsigiz look same.


      This is how my buddy across the street grills ribs. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to try them yet. It's worth noting however he often gives me ribs to smoke for him.

        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.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

        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.
