SLR question.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, I've failed at my frist 2 trys at ribs. Both were full racks. Now I'm not a rib fan, but the wife is, and if she isn't happy, well, you get my plight. She wants FOB. Nothing less.
She picked up a pre rubbed enhanced rack of SLR. Her "thoughts" were maybe I could probably, maybe, hopefully make her some good ribs, and I could use all the help I could get. Oh the love... these were some meaty ribs btw.

Anyway, I was planning on doing the 3-2-1 method. I started them out at 225*. Maverick 732 confirmed pit temp. Foiled with 1/4 cup apple juice. When I pulled them after the 2 hr crutch, I checked them with a toothpick, and there was zero resistance. They were so tender and I could pull the bones out easily.

So I didn't want to chance putting them on unfoiled for the last hr in fear of drying them out.

My question, would they have dried out if I put them back on for the final hr? Could I possibly be the enhancing caused the early tenderness?

On a positive note, momma was happy, but did mention the lack of bark. Think she's been watching too many bbq pitmasters shows.

You should've put them back on for at least 30 minutes. They wouldn't have dried out.

I was afraid you were gonna a say that. Lol.

Not afraid to admit, i was scared to dissapoint the wife. Well ok scared is a little dramitac, but i didn't want to dissapoint her a 3rd time as far as ribs go. Lol. At least she liked them. Better than the first 2 tries where they were sooo tuff or dry a boiled hotdog was like prime rib. Lol

Yeah, putting them back on without foil firms up the ribs and momma will get her bark (hope it's worse than her bite).

Putting on a few thin layers of sauce (if she likes sauce) at this time also helps to create a firmer exterior.

They will still fall off the bone.

You will have to try again and keep notes......

Keepin' her happy is very important !!!
