Finishing Ribs On The Grill

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Evenin' All


As the subject suggests, I'm toying with the idea of finishing some baby backs on a propane grill, probably substituting the last hour of the 2-2-1 method with it on the grill. My hopes in all of this, is that the inside will be tender, fall off the bone, and the outside will have a nice bark to it. Anyone have any success/failures/tips with this? Am I wasting my time?


Reason I'm considering the experiment is because when I smoke ribs, they never really get a bark to them. I'm using an MES 40, and keep the heat around 225-240 when I do ribs. The night before I do a coating and rub and wrap in plastic wrap to sit until the next morning. Is there something else I can be doing to get that great bark and tender inside?



Any input would be much appreciated.

I can't see where it will help much. Try kicking your heat up some on the MES the last hour. Remember if your using a sugar based rub it will burn above 250°

I've finished ribs over propane 100 times. Just keep the flames low and move them around

Thanks for the tips guys. I bought two racks so I guess I'll just have to try it both ways and see what I like best.
