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.
