BBQ Ribs Baking/Grilling

Today Im making a rack of ribs.

I had them marinate overnight, and now I lined a pan with foil and 1/5' of water (i also added brown sugar to the water, and I put a "rub" on them. I added water so they wont stick. I then covered the pan with foil

Does anyone think theres a problem with covering with foil here? Theyre currently baking at 425 for the next half hour, then im gonna sauce them and cook them on low heat for the better part of 2 hours. Then on to the grill!

I normally just put a rub on them and grill, this time im going for more tenderness. Does anyone think I covered them too early?

I assume you're using baby backs or spare ribs and a grill/smoker, but even in the oven, the rules are the same. Cook for the entire time at a low temperature - 225-250F. There is no need for high heat in the beginning.

Also, if you're smoking them on a grill or smoker, no foil is necessary. Just low and slow for 3-4 hours.

Covered is fine. I used to make "Country Style" ribs that way...
In liquid, high heat then low heat, covered the entire time.

Works well!

I have never done ribs on my gas grill the whole time, would love to try, always afraid of running out of gas. Have always done them in the oven, then grill. How many hrs. at 250 for spare ribs would you do on the grill? 8-9 or less? Thanks ! (Oh, indirect heat or no)oes it matter?

Spare ribs should be done in 4-5 hours.

All this rib talk is getting me in that mood again....just in time for the weekend. I would grill the whole time if I had a hibachi with tons of charcoal and hickory....which I could probably rig up for less than $40....probably worth it....

I do it all the time on my gas grill, using indirect heat. I have a 3 burner grill, I only light one burner on high and keep the ribs on the other side for a good 4 hrs. or so.
Just keep basting with BBQ and turning over every 1/2 hr or so, and they are delicious.

Cool

I'm thinking on a Weber charcoal grill over indirect heat with some hickory for smoke. I've done pork roast this way and it's turned out great. I'll have to try ribs this way.
