  1. How do you produce a dark crust on the bbq ribs. My ribs usually come out with a dark carmel look with little crust. I inserted a picture as an example of what I want mine to look like. Thanks

    You need to use a rub with some sort of sugar in it to form a crust. Look around the forum for a rub recipe you think looks good.

    I use either brown or maple sugar on mine.

    Good luck!

      Like mneeley said, a rub with a fair amount of sugar and maybe crank up the temp for the last part of the cook time.

    IMO the ribs in that pic dont even look appetizing

    I agree, but that being said sugar is the key
