I am cooking 2 racks of beef ribs tonight, which I have never cooked before. I am considering boiling the ribs ahead of time since the grill I have right now sucks.

Any good recipes, boiled or not? Also, how long will these things take to cook?

I will have some good, molasses barbecue sauce to use at the table, but I think that I would prefer a rub of some sort while cooking them. If I boil them I might boil them in beer, if that makes them better.

Cover them well with the rub or sauce of your choice. Place them in the bottom half of a roaster pan with maybe a cup of water in the bottom. Seal the top of the roaster with aluminum foil. Cook them in the oven for about 2 hours at 275. Remove them from the oven and finish on the grill.

I don't have too much time to mess with them, so they are boiling in beer now. I will put a rub on them and grill them when I am done boiling them. I plan to boil them about an hour and 15 minutes. Sound right?

Ribs never were the tenderest meat, so boiling is a good choice for loosening them up and removing excess fat. But finish in the oven or on the grill. Put any sauce on them after you remove them from the grill.

I like to cook them for several hours in an oval shaped crock pot, or if I do a ton of them, in a large electric roaster, low temperature, approx 275.

Another way I like them, I saw in Japan. After cutting the ribs into individual ribs, the cook made repetitive cuts in the meat 1 inch apart. After cooking, the meat shrinks and is in bite size pieces on the bone. It also cooks much more evenly that way.

How much of that silver skin or whatever the hell it is on the BACKSIDE of the ribs do you guys take off? This applies to pork ribs.

Thanks and sorry for the brief hijack!

Char the ribs on the grill and scrape all that membrane off. The membrane will make the ribs very tough. A good slow smoking with a dry rub is always a fine choice. When time is a big factor boiling and finishing up on the grill is a good alternative.

How the heck do you do it? Should it come off easy? I tried to peel it off. No dice.
