    250* for 2 hours, or until the meat pulls back and you can see the end of the bones.

    Pull the membrane off the backside. Season with what ever you like put in disposable pan cover with foil and cook for 2 hours at 200 then toss on the grill over indirect heat and apply you favorite sauce.

    Good call on the membrane. You know what my next suggestion wil be.......................





    some wood chips in heavy duty foil (or a smoker box if you have one) with holes pokes in it over the hottest part of the grill.

    Mix up brown sugar, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and garlic. Rub the mixture on the ribs. No BBQ sauce needed.:D

    I usually just cut a slit in the center of the membrane and start working my fingers under it and separate it from the meat.

    so here's how they turned out... when we finished eating, we gave a bone to the dog, and it took her less than 2 minutes to eat the bone, the whole thing...

    the ribs were ok, next time ill cook them a little longer, but i couldnt get the grille to stay at 275, it was either 250 or 310... ill cook them at 310 next time, and didnt get a lot of smoke out of the wood either...

    For future reference, when pulling the membrane off, use a dry paper towel or dish cloth for better grip.

    Sometimes I will pop them in the freezer for about 10-15 min and that helps.

    thats my wife's mutt, i dont own a dog, she had a beagle while we were dating and it died less than 2 years old.... so ethel is the current guard dog... shes a blast, we had to throw all 3 black cats out because of the baby on the way, and one (can be seen as the guard cat in the DD/project pics thread) stuck around, when we had the cats they all outweighed the mutt.. 15lbs was the lightest one..
