    For once, I have the time that it takes to cook them slowly and to boil them as well. Oh well. Perhaps I'll be able to get the fat run off with the liquid I put in the foil.

    Thanks Ginger and Bubba!!

    A few weeks ago I just bought pre-cooked ribs (dinner was on a boat, with no stove, no grill...so I had to make do with microwave cooking). So I thought I'd make real ribs today.
    People get all uppity about making BBQ. I boil them for the oven but I always have a lot more time when I use the smoker so I don't bother. Time is the critical factor. Six or more hours in the smoker versus 3 or 4 hours in oven.

    Heh!! Ribs, corn on the cob, baked potatoes and mint chocolate chip ice cream sundaes. Oh...and corn bread. It just doesn't get any better than that. I've been eating t.v. dinners for the past 2 weeks. This will be a nice change of pace for me.

    You're right. I like to use the smoker when I have time and the wind doesn't interfere. I cook with wood and wind just really heats up the thing too much.

    The thing about bar-b-que is to enjoy making it and eating it. If it tasts good, you did alright. Everybody has their favorite method.

    I hope she doesn't put sugar in her cornbread. :eek::D

    They were excellent!! Fall off the bone tender! I ended up cooking them for about 6 hours total.
