Yesterday we had a guest over for dinner, and The Missus requested ribs, so I picked up a rack of pork back ribs along with a bunch of chicken wings.

Being that the day slipped by timewise, I decided to do them on the Weber OTG with my rotisserie kit as I've had good results in getting them done in under 2 hours. Unfortunately, I used WAY too much charcoal, so the kettle was running much hotter than usual. I decided to put them on anyway. Also added some nice sized hunks of cherry for smoke flavor. The ribs were dusted with Oakridge Secret Weapon.

Here's what they looked like at 35 minutes:

I took them off 10 minutes later, as they were most definitely done. All in all, the ribs were very good. I would have had better results using my Kamado, which is my go-to rib cooker, but didn't have time for that.

Do you know what temp you were cooking at?

I've done lots of BB ribs that fast (always good) but now finding myself slowing it down a bit. Probably just because there's more time to sit and enjoy watching them!

No idea as my kettle lid doesn't have a thermo, but my guess would be around 375-400 based on how quickly they cooked.

I've done grilled spare ribs before, on my Egg, temp grate temp around 500*F, cooked for ~30mins. I think (but am not certain) I cooked them indirect, I know I didn't turn them over. Here's the recipe (wife found it somewhere) :: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/grilled-italian-spareribs

They were the best ribs I've ever had.

I relayed a story here recently where I had a buddy from Mexico pop in and want ribs unexpected. I cooked them on the egg for just over 2 hours at 300 and they were spectacular. He raved on and on. I told him that next time if he gave me more time, I'd blow his mind. He did, I cooked them for 5 hours at 225 and he preferred the quick cook hands down.

I've got mine down to about 3.5 hours now on the offset. Nowhere near 45 minutes though, lol... well done sir!

I love rotisserie ribs & yours look super!
Never done them at those temps, though.

I believe the Vergos' Rendezvous restaurant in Memphis is known for their hot-and-fast grilled ribs.

several moons ago i watched a show on travel channel or food network hosted by guy fieri, if i remember right, it was a tailgate cookoff. one of the competitors cooked ribs and did them in about 45min. i can't remember if it was guy or another judge who commented they couldn't believe a 45min rib could be so good.

just wanted to post that in support of the fact that ribs can be done well w/o being done slow.

Interesting. How is it that they do that without charing them to charcoal? Are they constantly flipping?

You guys are getting me thinking. I might try fast ribs next time, not grilled though...that sounds like work.

Great job Moose, I want to try that, but have to figure out how to get two racks on the spit, one rack won't feed 5 of us........I know the octoforks could do it

If there was one criticism I had about the ribs, it was that they were a bit dry due to the high/direct heat. Some years back on another rib cook, I lost control of the temp on my kamado, and it was running about 325. I put the ribs on anyway, and they took about 90 minutes. Other than the fact that there wasn't much of a smoke ring, they were every bit as good as the ribs I cook at 275.
