Resting ?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by stevetheteacher, May 30, 2015.

  1. I have heard and read about "resting" the meat. At what point during the 3-2-1 method should I do this and for how long?

    Thanks!!!

    Steve resting would be after the 1 if you do the 3-2-1. The rest enables the meat, to take juices back in that, would run out if you cut right into it.

    My ribs "rest" for about 5 minutes or so between the time they come off the pit until I cut them up. Doesn't affect quality of the ribs a bit. YMMV.
