HTC; Just roll up two pieces of aluminum foil and place them in the bottom of our current slow cooker. It will allow the grease to drain off as well as will a rack. I've been doing this with oven roasted turkeys, pork and beef roasts, ribs, and so on for years. And it's cheap.
I have a rack of baby backs on foil tubes in my slow cooker right now. I will be putting them on the barbecue with wood later today.
And Rainee, I know I'm cheating. But I'm just not prepared to spend all day tending the Webber Kettle today. I'll get good smoke flavor, and very juicy and tender ribs with this hybrid technique.
Have to admit though, all day on a slow, smoky fire, with a good mop is the best.
I'm just feeling lazy today.
