Standing spareribs Memphis-style *PICS !

Post by DON-NL » Tue Feb 03, 2009 2:12 pm

Hi all,

This is my first recipe since i became member (aprox. 2 weeks ago).
Even better it was my first recipe on my new big 22,5" Weber ! :)

So i really love to see the PITBOYS (barbecueweb.com) movies and one of their spareribs recipes was a "Standing Rib" recipe.

This is what i've done:

* Bought 2 big fresh spareribs at the butcher.
* Got rid of the membrems !
* Rubbed them in with a mixture of mustard and honey.
* After the mustard & honey, i've put a Memphis-style dry rub on the ribs.
* Rolled the ribs and kept them rolled with some saté sticks.
* I waited for about 1 hour to let the rub penetrate the meat a bit.
* I set the Weber firestarter on fire and waited for about 30 minutes.
* After this i put the charcoals in the Weber and put the ribs on the grill.
* First minutes direct grilling to seal the juices
* Then on indirect grilling for the rest of the cooking time.
* After 1 hour of indirect grilling, i put a cup with Dutch beer on the grill to moist the ribs.
* After another 1,5 hours of cooking (i turned the ribs every 20 minutes) they were done :)

Plate the ribs with some colesalade and patatosalade and it was GOOD !!!!


haha later Don

Looks good, Don.
I've never tried them rolled like that but I imagine you could fit quite a few on that way. When I use my kettle for ribs I usually average about 4.5 - 5 hours from start to finish, with one hour in the foil. My kettle will sit at 275 degrees pretty steadily but much lower than that and it starts getting unpredictable. Surprisingly, last time I made ribs I used the WSM and the result wasn't quite as good as with the kettle. Too many variables to understand why, so I'm going back to the kettle for the next ribs I do, next weekend.
I wasn't really all that hungry until I saw your post. Nice job, Don.

Well thanks guys !! haha that nice to read !

@ Trev:
I was about to cook 'em round 4 hours or so, but i guess the bbq was getting to hot. First i used the briquettes from Weber that i got with the firestarter. These guys burn very fast in the firestarter, but unfortunately they didn't gave a good heat in the kettle :( (after one hour i still could hold my hand above the grill without getting burned :().
So i got some of my 'normal' charcoal (no briquettes i mean !) and fired them up in the starter. After 15 minutes or so they were very VERY hot and i threw them in de kettle. Then the ribs got hot instantly haha

I guess i have to figure out whats the best charcoal-way to cook the ribs. But i know i never use the Weber briquettes anymore haha.

P.s. due the problem the 'normal' charcoal (no briquettes) falls under the lowest grill in the kettle, i've made a nice modification for it i think. I know these things are for sale, but i never saw a big one like this. On the Weber webshop-sites i could only find small briquette holders but i wanted to have a big briquette/charcoal holder to split the kettle in 2 halfs. One direct heading and one indirect heading.

I made it from aluminium so it won't rust and hopefully it can stand the heat haha...

Look at the pics and please tell me if it was worth making it cause i didn't used it (just finished making it haha).

p.s. the firestarter can be placed in the holder, so in that way all burned charcoal that falls out of out of the starter drops in the holder. So no mess with pieces of charcoal in or out off the kettle :) haha

Hey Don
Nice holder you made there for your charcoal, it is a great size for sure. You might consider this though. I have always been led to believe that if you put alot of heat to aluminum that it can give off toxic fumes which in turn would get into the food you are cooking. You might consider doing the same great project using a stainless steel mess instead. Just a thought. 8) Hippie

Great design, Don. I'm thinking you may have to give the basket a shake from time to time to keep the ash from building up too much and starving the charcoal out. I used a piece of expanded steel and just layed it accross the bottom. Works okay, but I still have to give it a tap from time to time to keep the ash from building up too much. Let us know how it goes.

Thanks guys,

Well when i saw the first reaction on my homemade charcaol holder :) i got a bit scared. And i searched the internet if aluminium gives toxic smoke when exposed to fire. Some sites they say it does and some say charcoal has a burn tempature of around 300 degree Celcius and Aluminium around 600 degree Celcius.
So im now thinking ... are these toxic smoke flames released well reaching the melt tempature of the aluminium OR does this also happen when the aluminium get hot by flames on a certain tempature around 300 degree Celcius (burn temp charcaol).

Ifr so that would s u c k ! haha i spend some time and money in this aluminium project haha

Thank later Don
