Spare Rib Coil

So ... Spare Ribs are one of my favorite meals to smoke.

They are easy to find and comparatively inexpensive, and when done right, they are delicious.

Not too long ago, I was watching the BBQ Pit Boys YouTube Channel, and they were doing "St Louis Beer Can Split Ribs".

And then ... a few days after that video, I saw them doing "Crown Pork Ribs the King of Ribs".

When I make Spare Ribs, one issue I have is the amount of space they take up on the grill.

It isn't really a problem when the kids are away (like they are now), and even when they are here, 2 racks is more than enough to feed us all.

But two racks pretty much takes up my whole 26 inch Weber Kettle, and it is a little crowded. I don't have room for anything else.

So, seeing the ribs folded / rolled over themselves seemed like something that would save room.

I decided to give the rolling method a try on the same day we visited K is for Kodiak Brewery Bar and Grill.

Since my kids are both away at school, I only made one rack of ribs.

I did the preparation before going off to Kodiak Brewery, so when I returned, I could get the fire started and the rib on the kettle as soon as we got back.

Usually I do a modified 3-2-1 method (more like 2.5 - 2.5 - .5), but I didn't have time for that. 

I smoked the ribs at a higher temperature for about 2 hours unwrapped. Then, wrapped it for 1.5 hours  or so wrapped, and then unwrapped for .5 hours until it was time to take them off the kettle.

I added the sauce to the ribs when I wrapped, which I've never done before ... but that's how they did it in "St Louis Beer Can Split Ribs".

It really turned out good. I'm not sure if these were necessarily the best I've ever made, but they were certainly up there in quality.

I think next time I make Spare Ribs, I'll probably do it this way again.

Anyway ...
