Basics on Baby Back Ribs

Barbecue is synonymous with ribs for a reason.  When I open the lid of my grill and see slabs of moist, juicy ribs slathered in barbecue sauce, it brings a tear to my eye. Smoking your ribs allows for them to cook slowly, resulting in added moisture, while the smoke gives them a delicious flavor that can’t be matched. If you’ve never smoked ribs before, here’s your time to learn. If you have smoked them, this is a refresher course for you. Either way, after watching this video, you’ll want to head out in the backyard and get smoking!

How long does it take to get the ribs from 165 to 190 after wrapping them in foil?

Hi Brandon,
This usually takes about 1.5-2 hours. I like to check the ribs at the 1 hour mark just to make sure they are on the right track. Enjoy grilling your ribs on your Weber.

Happy Grilling!

What type of Weber smoker are you using? It looks great and I've gone to the Weber site but do not see it there.
