Yesterday was my first attempt at ribs on my new Kamado Joe. With advice from my buddy who owns a BGE, I decided to use the 3-2-1 method. I used spare ribs with a store bought bbq rub and our readily available Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce for the glaze. 2 chunks of hickory for smoke and KJ lump charcoal. Overall I am quite happy for my first rib cook. Temps held amazingly well at 220-225 for the full 6 hours. Apart from having some ealry troubles with getting the charcoal fully lit, I had a stress free cook as far as the grill was concerned. After the 2 hours in foil, however, my bones were practically falling out of the back of the meat. I had to carefully remove them and gingerly place them back on the grill for the last hour. Taking them off after required 2 spatulas and my girlfriend on the ready with a sheet pan, but they came off without falling apart! I think I either ended up with baby back ribs and they cooked too long or just not a good slab of spares to begin with. Anyone have any advice for my next go around to prevent the meat from falling off so easily? Thanks in advance! Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
