Default Fall Off The Bone Ribs

Do any of you purposely over cook your ribs to fall off the bone status to please your guests? Even though you know that's not the right way to do it?

I have done it before, but also did some that were "properly" cooked so they could try them side by side. Properly cooked has won ever single time.

Here we go again with right way/wrong way, I see nothing wrong with making something the way someone else likes it. If you had folks over for steaks, wouldn't you prepare them the your guests liking?

Not on purpose. I screwed up a few racks though.

My wife LIKES them fall off the bone, but she's finally figured out I'm not gonna do it that way on purpose. Maybe I should...just for her??? Maybe on Mothers' Day next year...

I'm leaning towards over cooking them so I can please my guests. This thread was not made to say one way is wrong or right. It is about what would one do in that situation, sticking to ones guns or pleasing their guests.

Understood, I think a good host always tries to please his guests.

Oh, and you did say...

Yeah, I'm back on exactly what IS "the right way"?

Funny, among the competition sanctioning bodies that define ribs, they disagree on what "the right way" is. So, I guess the right way is up to the beholder, isn't it?

When cooking ribs I actually prefer MBN's definition of the perfect rib, and it's more done that KCBS's definition.

What do I cook? I cook 'em until they're done, and we eat. Eat and be merry!

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

If it's feasible to do them both ways, I'd go for that. Let the peoples decide! I prefer them not falling off the bone, btw.

Tim, if I were cooking steaks, I would ask them how they wanted them and cook them that way (or try my best). I've cooked ribs for a lot of guests. I don't ask them if they want fall off the bone, or not. I try to give them easy to bite off the bone ribs and have never heard a complaint. IF someone were to ask me to cook them to where they fall off the bone, I would. However, if I'm cooking just one rack for my wife and I then I don't - at least not on purpose, because (1) even though she SAYS she likes them falling off the bone, she always raves about the ones I serve; (2) When I cook for us, I am usually doing so as practice for comps...so I want to do what I would do in a comp (even though I may change the sauce); and (3) I don't like them falling off the bone and I don't know how to do half falling off and half not falling off the bone...at least not intentionally.
