Hyvee Culinary Expert TipTo get tender smoked foods from the grill, use indirect heat. On a charcoal grill, place the coals on one side; place an aluminum foil pan on the other, directly under where the food will cook. For a gas grill, heat with all burners on high, then turn one side of the burners off and place the food there.
Hyvee Culinary Expert TipFirst time making ribs? Remember to remove the membrane from the back. Just loosen it at the tail end, grip it with a paper towel, and peel it off in one piece. Or, your Hy-Vee butcher can do it for you.
Hyvee Culinary Expert TipRemember to soak a cedar plank in water for at least 2 hours before grilling. For extra flavor, try adding wine or cider to the soaking liquid.
