DIRECTIONS

  • Take the tough membrane off the back of the ribs, with a sharp knife and paper towel. (Use the knife to loosen a part of the membrane, over a small end bone and then grab the loosened portion of membrane with the paper towel and rip off the whole membrane).
  • Rub the ribs with a couple teaspoons of Texas-Beer-B-Que rub on each side of each rib.
  • Tie the ribs to your ribcage. Light your grill's bottom burners on high, and back burner on low, and burn off anything from your last use. Wire brush and remove half of the bottom grills and set aside. Add canned wood chips on the bottom coals and a thermometer on the remaining bottom grill. (For the wood chips - I recommend apple, oak, or hickory.). Close the lid and wait until the wood chis are smoking. Put the "rib cage" spit on the rotisserie of your grill. Half close the lid, I use a wrench as a spacer). Turn off the bottom burners, turn on the rotisserie motor. Try to regulate the temperature to about 230F, by adjusting the lid's opening, and the back burner's temperature (low to medium low). Let it spin for 4-5 hours, until the meat has shrunken away from the bone a bit and they are drop-dead tender and mouthwatering, then cut them free from the cage and enjoy.
  • If you are one of those "wet" rib eaters, you can sauce them on your plate or start basting them 30 minutes before removing from the grill, and every 10 minutes until ready.
