    I thought this sounded interesting the other day so I tried it.

    Results much less than spectacular.

    The flavor was terrific but the ribs were very overcooked.  I thought this might happen given the times in the recipe but I did them that way anyway.

    Any comments appreciated.
  2. I would think they would cook super fast and prob dry out. I get upset when I have to cut a rack in half if I'm doing allot I'd Loose my mind doing each rib.

    You have to wrap each rib in a strip of bacon.. Keeps the moisture in and as we all know .. Bacon makes everything taste better...
    Side note: I got this recipe from my cardiologist!!

    I'm like SS BBQ, I don't like to cut the racks in half, cause the end ribs are never as tender & juicy as the middle ones.

    That said, wrapping them in bacon may work.

    I see another experiment coming.  [​IMG]

    I don't think I would mess with cutting ribs but I can see this being one time when Water in the smoker would be useful...JJ
