Baby Back Ribs

The “family” of friends just keeps growing at the Char-Broil LIVE Community Forums. This post by Grossie demonstrates how folks come to the forum with questions and most kinda hang back for a few weeks (or even months) just soaking up the conversation and learning by reading the posts. Then – BAM! – one day, inspired by others on the Forum, they take the plunge and try their hand at cooking something they’ve never tried before.

Baby Back Ribs ready for lip smack'n!


After the initial cook - time to foil to "roast" or as some call it - "Texas Crutch"

Well, Bobo’s post yesterday inspired me to cook babyback ribs.  I found this old post “Preparing Baby Back Ribs in Big Easy”  from RAD and followed those steps to try it out in my .

  1. Removed the membrane, placed the ribs on the hooks and fired up TBE.
  2. Cooked for 50 minutes.
  3. Removed, put on my dry rub, covered in foil.
  4. Put back in for 50 minutes.
  5. Removed, coated with sauce, put back in for 10-15 minutes.

They were tasty!

Compliments from the family, even the two that don’t generally enjoy ribs.

  1. Could I have a writen copy of the recipe for Beer Basted BBQ Ribs please.

  2. i cooked my first set of ribs on a lows commercial try grill tonight. they were from costco, the instructions said to grill them 15 minutes each side (medium/hot) and then 90 minutes on the rack (medium/hot),

    After 30 minutes on the rack i took them off and they were burnt like charcoal. i couldn’t even get a knife through them.

    I’ve never owned a grill, this is my first. any advice what i did wrong? Do the instructions on the ribs not apply to a try grill?

    • Paul – Congrats on the new grill! If I’m understanding correctly, you stated that you have one of our Commercial Series grills from Lowe’s and I’m thinking it’s also one of our Tru-Infrared grills. If this is the case, this unit will get very hot (up to around 700 degrees Fahrenheit), so I can understand why your ribs came out burned. I’m sorry to hear about this happening, but with any style of cooking, there is going to be an adjustment period until you know exactly how this new grill works. Do keep in mind that the temperatures will get extremely hot and if wanting to slow cook, crank the heat way down and also maybe even consider using only one or two burners instead of the three or four your grill has. It’s definitely a learning process, but one you’ll be proud of! One thing I will recommend is to keep a meat thermometer handy to check internal temperatures of the foods you’re preparing to make sure everything is done. Let us know if you need more help and we’ll be glad to assist! Thanks and Happy Grilling to you! – Mandy
