Slight twist to the 3-2-1 way of cooking ribs.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I tried new idea for 3-2-1 method of doing ribs. Doing the normal way with foil wrap I noticed the meat was swimming in the grease. To me it had a funny after taste much like the taste you get from eating in greasy spoon truck stop. Talked it over with few guys in chat and decided to try something.

Went to wholesale bakery place where I buy spices and got one of those grates to cool cake on. The one that has little feet on it and found pan same size so it would fit inside. Total cost $2.

Put foil inside pan and added about 1 cup of apple juice with just a sprinkle of cinnamon. Covered and made sure I had good seal. Only use 2 pieces of ribs and the rest I wrapped the normal way. Just in case it turned out to be dumb idea.

After it was done the wife and I tested the meat form both ways. We agreed that the pan way was diffidently different taste, much better and the grease at bottom wasn't as dark (burnt) as wrapped. They were just as juicy and tender. Also not near the mess to clean up, that made the wife happy. Tried both with and without BBQ mop. Yummy.  Only problem I had was I over smoked it a little. Still learning but getting better.

Phil,

 

I found tossing back on a hot smoker or grill after foiling helps get rid of some of that extra moisture.  It also dried out the meat a bit.   I agree draining some of grease is never a bad idea.  I guess the way I wrap and the holes I end up with in the foil allow some of the extra grease to drain away.
