Default Speed Ribs (Rib Cook-off)

So....it appears i am moving from NC to NorCal, have joined the CBBQA and am looking forward doing some comps out here this year.

For the first one I decided to do a little local charity rib contest called: First Annual Relay for life Backyard BBQ Rib Challenge. This is being held at Fat City Driller Supply in Stockton, CA.

Went and signed up at lunch today. Here is the cook schedule for your enjoyment.
  • Cook's meeting: 8:00am (they are supplying 3 racks of ribs at this meeting to each team)
  • Start Cooking: 8:30am
  • Turn-ins: 1:00pm




Really?? 4.5 hours to prep & cook ribs???

So I asked the dude at the counter....how does that timelime work?

he says it's real easy. I cook ribs in my BGE at 220F for 3.5 hours, and they are real tender.

I am now wondering if they will parboil all the ribs for us beforehand....

325* for 2 hours, 1 hour in foil...you'll have all the tenderness you want.

from the ribs anyway.

Right...but he claimed 220F for 3.5 hours, and he teaches classes for BGE owners at the shop this too.

So I have never tried it, but if ribs are foiled the whole time...maybe you could cook a rack of ribs at 220F in 3.5 hours...maybe.

Maybe they're baby backs. Still, 220F seems a little low for the timeline. I can do BB's at 250 in 3.5 hours.

Good thought...I almost ALWAYS cook spares, very rarely cook baby back ribs, as they run 4.99/lb vs the 1.99/lb for spares, and I tend to like spares better anyways.

Apparently very little....but I'm willing to learn.

So it is customary to parboil ribs before of after your grill them at 400F?

It is "temporary"..just a little longer "temporary" than I first imagined.

It looks like 2.5 years, so I figured i should bring my stuff out, and by stuff i mean family

If you've got 3.5 hours to cook them ribs @225F (with a 1 hour prep, drinking, boxing and walking to turn in added in), you may want to trim 'em as thin as possible. smoke 2 hours and foil the rest. Dunk'em in some sawce as thick as motor oil to make them look better. Finally, hope the judges eat McDonalds a lot.

Good luck!

Ahh good point.

It is an open cooker event, maybe I should just bring a pressure cooker.
Tenderize them babies up and put a nice char on the outside after.

Thanks for the help!
