View Full Version : Foli with rib racks?

06-08-2012, 08:05 PM
So I see that some folks cut their racks of ribs in half and put them in rib racks when they are short on space. How well does foiling work with that? I'm sitting here thinking about the Johnny Trig method and whether or not you could do that with rib racks without all the good stuff sliding down to one side.

You really want the ribs to be flat in the foil so they will be in contact with the braising liquid. Since they are sealed you don't need to keep them on the pit, the oven will work fine.

Another way is to "lincoln log" them ie. put 2 down, stack the next 2 on top 90deg from the first ones and repeat until you have no more, cook until done.

I think if you tried this you would not like the results and I would not try it myself. If short on space better to stack like 1911Ron stated.

Like Thirdeye said Once they are in the foil, just stack them - no need to put them back in the racks.

I've stacked them on numerous occasions as stated above. Works like a charm
