    if i dont remove the membrane on the bottom of my ribs, what will that do? will cooking time increase? Will the taste be compromised? or will i be fine?
  2. It will make it harder to get the smoke and seasoning into the meat. They are just better with it off........Some people leave it on though

    it takes less than a minute. Start at the small end, pry up a corner and rip it off. Makes a difference.

    Hi Dozer,
    This is a good "You Tube" link that will show you the process. Hope this helps.

    Just peel up a small section and grab it with a paper towel and peel it off. If you don't remove it it makes the ribs tough and the smoke doesn't go through nicely.

    Sometimes they cooperate and other it times it's a hassle. Just one of those 'Q things.
