Phil is an experienced outdoor cook who also created a successful spice and seasoning company. He joined the Char-Broil Community Forums after purchasing a Gourmet™ 4 Burner Gas Grill by Char-Broil® and wanted to learn more about using it. He’s since made many contributions to the community with tips, tricks and advice learned from his many years as an outdoor cooking enthusiast. Recently he purchased his second Char-Broil® cooker – The Big Easy® Smoker Roaster & Grill by Char-Broil® — based upon all of the good reviews he’d read on the Forum from other members he’s come to know and trust. Today, he’s sharing his “first time cooking pork ribs” in his new cooker. Thanks Phil and Welcome to the Cookout!
“For my second time using the The Big Easy® Smoker Roaster & Grill by Char-Broil®, I decided to prepare ribs – based upon all the reports I’ve read here on the forum. To prepare the ribs, I slathered the racks with Carolina Treet and Awake-a-Steak seasoning, and allowed those flavors to marry overnight in the fridge. The next afternoon, I used the hooks to place the ribs in the cooking basket and started them on high for 20 minutes, then reduced the heat to low. It was slightly windy out, but they finished in about two hours.
I removed the ribs from the basket and wrapped each rack in foil and a towel for two hours in a cooler. After removing the cooked ribs from the basket, I sauced half and left the others plain. We liked both. They were juicy, delicious and crunchy at the same time. Certainly a little different than ribs I’ve prepared in my Green Egg, but so much quicker and easier. I think a Boston butt is next.
