Default One issue I have with the OTG...

Heat rises... darnit.

It's just not big enough for me to lay down 2 racks of ribs. I have 'em on end in a rib rack and the tops are getting burned.

Gauge at the top is reading 310 but my probe at grate level is 242.

Result? Burned edges! Still a few hours left to go too

(the more 'mahogany' ones on the right are crisping up cuz I marinated 'em in some teriyaki sauce last night. I'm guessing the sugar is burning. The two racks to the left (not the single one to the far left, that's a tester) are just have Montreal on 'em and aren't nearly as dark on the tips)

Well, it is primarily a grill, not a smoker. I never have the coals directly under meat when I set up for indirect.

I am not sure how you are set up there? Perhaps you are asking too much of it?

Yeah.. I know it's a primarily a grill. One of these days I'll graduate to an offset, WSM or drum of some sort. I got this one cuz of it's versatility. Didn't wanna buy one that could only do one thing just to come to realize I hated doing it :)

My coals are shoved to one side, as usual. Got the snake method going. Bad camera angle in that shot. Foil is under the meat to catch the grease. Here's a pic pre-meat.

Those bones look done to me, You can rotate the ribs in the rack every so often. I haven't used a rib rack in a very long time IMO they'e a useless piece of equipment like a BCC gizmo and charcoal holders.

Use a rib rack. This will allow you to cook at least 3 racks and brings your ribs just that much farther from the heat. It works, I've done it. Keep your temps down to 220. And only get just a couple briquets going. They will slowly spread evenly. The bottom vents, only leave open an 1/8 inch and adjust your heat from the top. Hope this helps.

Find yourself an 18" by 3" deep cake pan and a braising pan rack from restaurant suppy that will fit the pan. Bend the legs so that it sits half way off the bottom of the pan. Burn your charcoal(preferably in some type of basket) under the pan which is filled with water to about a half inch below the rack. Only light 2-3 coals to start and run the kettle with the vents wide open. I never check the temp. They are usually done somewhere between the 4 and 5 hour mark.

3rd place ribs at a 50 team contest a while back using this method. It is a pain toclean the pan and rack, but it makes awesome ribs every time.

Kind of a hassle but you can stack them tandem and keep rotating them every few minutes.
