Last Minute BBR's

Post by Smokin Mike »

The GF found a good deal on BBR's at Food Lion so we decided at the last minute to cook them up. I didn't want to mess with the smoker so I parked a couple of Weber charcoal baskets on the side of the 780 with some briquettes and some hickory chunks. We're going for hot and fast ribs today.

There is somethin wrong with your BBR's. They are short some ribs. :lol:

I assume you sliced in half to get them in-between the coals?

BTW, picked up 3 racks of BBR's for smoking on Master's Sunday.

I will probably cut one in half and vac seal 1.5 racks for a later date since I don't mess with having people over on Master's Sunday since I am in the home theater most of the day.

Smoking Mike - that looks like a quick way to cook um. How long on the heat?? Any finishing pictures.... I may have to try that way next time.

Well??? The thermometer on the grill door spiked up around 450° then coasted from there. I cooked them about an hour looking for some pullback on the ribs then I foiled them for another 30 minutes, then pulled them. So I cut the time about in half. I read an article somewhere that they could be done in an hour but I believe you had to grill them over open coals then foil wrap. Sorry, I didn't get a finished picture . 😒 The ribs were good but I believe they are better when slow cooked.

Good to know as I have wondered about that last part.

Thanks!! There were a couple times I did ribs in the smoker, then grilled um over direct fire for about 15 minutes or so. It firmed up the texture a bit and gave them a nice "bite" but overall I don't think folks liked them as much. Interesting.....

Here's a recipe/procedure from Weber for hot and fast ribs. It's basically foil wrapped ribs on high heat for an hour then grilled for 10 minutes. They add smoke at the grilling part but we all know the meat is not going to take on any smoke.

I suppose if you're in a dire need of some quick ribs then this is one way of doing it but it's just not the same as slow smoked IMO.
