Who would have thunk that boiling water has been around for 100 yrs.
But in all seriousness, I have boiled ribs numerous times and everyone absolutely loves them. But I cut the rack in half, season the ribs really well, put in the pot, add a little crab boil and a large sliced onion. I then boil for about an hour or so until I get pull back. Then I put them on the smoker pit for about 30-45 minutes with some good smoke from an all wood fire. I then baste them with BBQ sauce and about 10 minutes later I move them over the heat to add just a little bark. They come out awesome. Way better than any bbq restaurant that I've been to. I have tried the 221 method and my parents loved them, but I had just had jaw surgery so I couldn't have any for comparison. but I will do the 221 method again, but no matter how good they are, I wont throw out my boiling method for a quick batch cuz they come out awesome as well
