Not BBQ Ribs

As many of you know, I live in a condo complex and have only a gas grill. I love BBQ and make pulled pork and ribs on a regular basis using a combination of the oven and the grill.

I'm jealous of all the great smoking and BBQ you guys do and the pictures of the food makes me drool.

Today I made some baby backs. I started them with a rub and baked them in the oven at 250 F until almost done then finished them on the gass grill.

They lack the great smoke taste of BBQ'd ribs but weren't bad. Here's a picture.

Admirable job, Andy. How'd they taste? You really need to get yourself a Cameron's stovetop smoker.

Not bad, Katie. They didn't have the great smoke flavor you'd expect but the rub and sauce gave it a good flavor.

Did your little grandson, Steven I believe, have a taste? Isn't he old enough to venture into such things?

They look wonderful! Even on your gas grill you can infuse smoke. Just place your soaked wood chunks (not chips) in some foil and form into a ball. Poke some holes all over the top and put down on your flame source. Let those babies smoke away while they are on the other side of your heat source. You might not even have to use your oven at all. Occasionally rotate them so they evenly cook.

Is that an option? Even if they smoke for an hour and few or so you can finish in your oven and then crisp up again on the grill?

They still look wonderful - no matter what!

Katie, Steven was not around today and he's a little too young to eat BBQ. Maybe next year.

'elf, I've tried smoking on the gas grill and the problem is that I cannot keep the heat low enough. With olny one burner on the lowest setting and the lid cracked open, the temp is still over 300 F.

Thanks for the thoughts and suggestions, ladies.

See my post about the electric smoker - I think it's a great idea!
