If you're cooking on a gasser, I'd definitely soak. Wet chunks will smolder and smoke longer, especially on a hotter gas fire. I only soak chunks on the charcoal when I want to sleep for 2 hours on a full basket.

I agree with the consensus (indirect, chips in foil) and I"d suggest putting a cookie sheet, or something similar, under them to catch grease and make clean up easier.

Instead of cutting up the ribs, roll them up and skewer them so they stayed rolled up. You can fit a bunch of them on one side of the grill that way.

Watch the heat. Some gassers have (IMO) oversized burners. Probably sized to provide high heat for searing steaks. Even on low, they may put out more heat than you want. Otherwise I suspect you may be pleasantly surprised by your results. (At least I hope so!)

I am with you on this one. When it is in foil, heat is heat whether it is from an oven or a cooker.

well it is done...should have ordered pizza...actually the two racks in the middle came out great...but the ones on the outside apparently cooked A-LOT higher temp than then rest of the grill... one half rack was past salvageable and the other you had to pick your positive is that my mother in-law said they are going to get a charcoal grill to keep for me here...NEW WEBER sounds good to me!

The smoke advice was sound! thanks guys...that worked well and I even had a decent smoke ring on the 2 good racks...sorry was too ticked off to grab a camera

Thanks everybody for the help! Can always count on the Brethren
