Luckilly I had put a grate above the charcoal ring and was able to save it For the first cook they got rave reviews, but I will have to reduce the cook time slightly for the next cook.
Yes!!! Thanks for trying and sharing your results! I must admit, when I hung the ribs on the hooks of my PBC yesterday, I was a little nervous... in other words, I was kind of expecting to find a crispy slab laying in the coals. However, the experience I had blew me away... The ribs were literally bursting with juice when I did my "toothpick" test, and they didn't even come close to falling off the hook into the fire. I just don't get it...
