At 5 I go to pull them so I can sauce them up for the final hour....... And when I go to lift them they just fall apart tender as a babies butt. I didn't do anything different besides the ribs were frozen and the apple jelly. Can someone shed some light to as what I might have done wrong
i love my ribs to fall apart at home but not in the comps, the longer you foil , the more they are gonna fall apart. i normally cook mine 3 to 4 hours unrapped, then wrap them the final hour. cooking at 250. never thought about apple jelly, thats sounds like a good idea!
