Default Blasphemy, I know! Ribs on gas grill..

OK, first off, I have to add this disclaimer, I am asking this for a friend!!

OK, did a quick search and I know I have seen comments about this, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I have a friend who is cooking spareribs on a gas grill. I told him to keep temps low, put a pellet box above the flames with the ribs on the top warming rack of the grill. I suggested using a modified 3-2-1 with the determinates being pulling away from bone, wrap in foil till tender and done then crispen up afterwards...any other suggestions.

Actually, my suggestion was just dump his baby backs and drive to Dallas for the game on Saturday and enjoy my brisket and ribs from my 'dera...he'd be better off!

Dude, the adaptive 3-2-1 method is a great idea for the gassers!

When in a pinch I have cooked (shoot me now) and reheated ribs on the grill using the very same advice you gave your friend. Good lookin' out!

Actually, he and I were talking about all the Brother's here. I should have said "DADS"

Besides--he has all the $$--not DAD
Still waiting on my monthly stipend check to start

BOT--I wish I knew "what I know now" when I cooked ribbies on the grill!
Stacey's summary would have improved a boat load of ribbies

And, he learned that from all of us

Somebody is reading my mind. I was planning on doing ribs just this way on my gasser. Don't feel like going out to buy more coal since I will be moving again, but that is another story.

my only suggestion would be that if he had a grill that you could turn one side off and leave one side on to turn off the fire under the ribs and leave it on under the box. also an oven thermometer at grill level. good luck!

You didn't hear this from me, and if you tell anybody I said it I will deny it. If you try to slow/low cook on a grill the temperature is very hard to regulate, and can easily get too hot. The ribs will cook off fine but if they get too hot the collagen sets up tough. Hot cooking ribs can also dry them out. Grillers tend to do two things to cope with these problems. They cook the ribs before they put them on the grill by parboiling or pressure cooking the ribs so the collagen will break down in the wet heat. Then they mop early and often to add moisture while grilling. It is not uncommon for their ribs to be almost caramelized. I know that a lot of purists tell you never to parboil or pressure cook the ribs before putting them on the grill, but I have tasted some pretty good grilled ribs that have been prepared that way. They are not as good as ribs out of an offset smoker but they can still be good. The bottom line is not the process but the results. If they taste good then who cares about being a purist.

Tip for Campers: If you are camping with only an open fire and a grill you can still enjoy ribs. First cook the ribs in a douch oven with liquid just like you would fix a pot roast without the veggies, but do not cook it as long. If the bones come out then you have cooked them too long. Then put the ribs on the grill and baste with beer or pickle juice. Cover the ribs with cardboard to hold in a little smoke. I like to use an old pizza box because it has sides. After they grill a while and get nice and brown you can switch to basting with your favorite BBQ or hot sauce. this worked great when I was in the Army in central Germany.

Nothing necessarily wrong with ribs on a gas grill. Just don't call it Barbecue!!!

Me I hate parboiling. Ruins the flavor of the meat for me, especially with beef ribs. I would rather just grill them at high heat and have them chewy! I do want to barbeque some soon in the dera with offset heat and see how they turn out.
