Default What the Tongs???

Hey guys when cooking those tender fall off the bone ribs what would you say is the best method to remove them??? I have removed them with tongs normally but I can’t seem to find a long enough pair and always come close to a rib falling apart casualty. What’s the best tongs or method to remove ribs from the smoker out there?

I use Insulated Rubberized or Silicone Gloves, cool to 400+ degrees......two hands work great. Use them to flip while cooking too.

I use a pair of stiff spatulas/pancake flippers. I just slide one under each end of the rack. The middle is a bit unsupported but I never cook to the fall-off-the-bone point anyway.

I have something similar to this but never remember to pull it out. I think mine were called rib flipper or something like that.

I typically pick them up carefully with a towel and spread my fingers out as much as possible.

Just use nitrile gloves with knit gloves under them.

Works for everything.

Found it. My tool wasn't as big as I thought it was. It's a Wolfgang Puck product.

I use weber tongs I bought at Lowes. They are long enough to scoop up the whole rack usually.
