Using a Rib Rack


Step 1

Stand the ribs in a rib rack to double the number of ribs you can cook in a limited grill space.


Step 2

To protect the meat, begin with the bone side of the ribs facing the coals.


Step 3

After the first hour of cooking, baste the ribs with a “mop.”


Step 4

Periodically swap the positions of the ribs in the rib rack for even cooking.


Step 5

Toward the end of cooking, face the meaty sides of the ribs toward the coals to brown and crisp the surface.
