Gonna grill for the first time in 35 years

Since I haven't done it for so long I have to learn how all over again. I got a cheap little Smokey Joe a few days ago. I will do the prep work Sat. after work and the final cooking on the grill on Sunday.

I decided to start with this because it seems easy for a grilling newbie and it looks and sounds mouthwatering. I'll have it with grilled corn on the cob and asparagus or green beans depending on what looks best at the supermarket.

Awesome! This is definitely doable on the Smokey Joe (finishing the rib part). You'll have to split the rack in half to fit though.... :))
I've done similar rib recipes, from the oven, foiled, and to the charcoal grill.

That's exactly how I do my ribs too Liz, with one exception. I don't want falling off the bone ribs, and 300 degrees for 3 hrs in the oven is just way too hot and long imo. I do mine at 250 degrees for 2 1/2 hrs with much better results. You'll notice when he cut the ribs after removing from the grill they just fell apart. Some resistance to the bone is how cooking contest ribs are judged.
Good luck and have fun with your new cooking toy!

I agree, you need to cut the time and temp in the oven.....otherwise, when you remove the ribs from the foil they will literally fall apart on you as you try to pick them up.

Thanks folks. I wondered about that myself. I don't call 300 degrees low. 250 is low. I may go the 3 full hours, though.

Agree with Kay and RF. Lower heat and a little less time in the oven. "Fall off the bone tender" is just an expression, or should be. By the time they're THAT done, they're also dry. Half the fun of ribs is chewing them off the bone.

Congrats Liz, and welcome to the grilling side of DC! Can't wait to hear how they turn out.

Only on the grill for 7 - 10 minutes? That doesn't leave much time to drink beer while the ribs are grilling!

Shoot, it will be the weekend. I'm sure that I'll be drinking beer from before I get them started.

Beer. This is another reason why I cut the time in the oven. I give the ribs extra time on the grill and run the toothpick test as I continue to grill, baste, and drink beer.....in no particular order.

Exactly right RF...in my case it's wine drinking time, and good music by old dead people, and my book. "Toothpick test"? That's interesting.
You're gonna love grilling again Liz!!
