  1. Hi guys, my name is Patrick. I live in central Mississippi. I have a BGE and have been cooking on it for around 5 years now. I actually stumbled across this forum looking for solutions to a problem I have when cooking ribs. My ribs have good flavor and are tender but I never get a great bark on them. Using the BGE (large) I usually end up stacking the ribs because I usually cook 3 racks when I do and space is limited. I've also never tried foil wrapping them. I didn't know if that was the problem and if there was a solution to positioning them. I have a rib rack and didn't know if it would affect how the ribs cooked if I cut them into halves so I could put them all in without having to stack them. Anyhow, I think this forum is a great idea and look forward to talking different topics with ya'll.

    Welcome from SC, Patrick. You have come to a great site with lots of folks who are always ready to share their ideas and tips. All you have to do is ask. Ribs are so small and also very tasty, so I never think about bark on a rib. I saw a recipe in Southern Living about 10 year ago that stacked ribs. They actually would rotate them every 45 minutes or so. Move the top two down and put the bottom one on top. I used it several times on a gas grill. Actually a pretty good deal. Also, I never wrap ribs. I just cook them straight through until done and then sauce them.

    Good luck and good smokin', Joe
