Green Egg grills are the perfect grill to make smoky and sweet BBQ ribs using very few ingredients. This high-end komodo grill makes the best ribs because they are cooked low and slow, caramelizing and transforming into tender meat as they cook.
Why Make Green Egg Ribs?
When it comes to flexibility, the Big Green Egg is unmatched. This product combines the delicious charring abilities of a grill with the convenience of an oven.
The Big Green Egg is capable of searing steaks and chops at temperatures of up to 750 degrees. The temperature can also be kept low and slow, hovering around 200 degrees for perfectly cooked ribs or briskets. Whether you are craving fresh-baked bread or a warm pie, the Big Green Egg will hold heat longer than a brick oven.
There is no doubt that the Big Green Egg’s greatest strength is the ease with which it can be adjusted. You can select and maintain a temperature within just a few degrees by using the dampers. Simply select your number, and the Big Green Egg will do the rest.Print
What is the Best Way to Prepare Ribs on a Green Egg?
The best way to prepare robs on a Green Egg is to cook them low and slow using the 2-2-1 method.
Using the Green Egg, wood chips are placed over the coals in a spiral pattern after being soaked in water to give off the best smoke.
To make the ribs, coat them with your favorite rub and place them on the pre-heated grill (200 degrees Fahrenheit). After two hours on the grill, take them out, wrap them in aluminum foil, and pop them back in for two more hours.
For the final hour on the grill, sauce them and allow them to caramelize for fall-off-the-bone, amazing ribs!
How Long Does it Take to Cook Ribs on a Green Egg?
Typically, it will take you 4-5 hours to cook ribs on a Green Egg.
How to Use Big Green Egg Rib Rack
To double the number of ribs you can cook on a limited grill space, place ribs in a rib rack. The following steps will keep ribs cooking evenly:
- The bone side of the ribs should face the coals in order to protect the meat.
- The ribs should be basted with a mop after the first hour of cooking.
- To ensure even cooking, periodically rotate the positions of the ribs on the rack.
Should You Use Foil to Make Green Egg Ribs?
When wrapped in foil, ribs cook faster as heat and moisture are trapped inside the wrapper. This technique is referred to as the “Texas crutch” because it saves time and helps to tenderize the meat and can be used for Green Egg ribs.
