Just curious ....

  1. I don't ever see myself doing a competition, but do judges like ribs that fall off of the bone or ribs that you cut and chew off the bone. The reason I ask is that usually mine turn out such that I cut them and eat off of the bone, but this weekend I wrapped them in foil with some apple juice and spices. They tasted incredible but they fell apart as I up-wrapped and tried to put them back on the grate.

    Like I said.... just curious.

    Hey Racer,

    Judges typically judge on ribs that have a little tug (i.e. do not fall off the bone). In my family we love fall off the bone ribs which is why I always foil mine with some butter and brown sugar.

    However, I am planning on joining a few amateur competitions next spring...so over the fall I will be trying to get the proper tug for the judges.

  3. Thanks for the response !
