    1. Trim excess fat from ribs after removing them from the packaging. Trimming your ribs helps them cook more evenly. 

    2. Shape the rack into a circle. Tie the ribs tightly together using kitchen twine or pin the ends with metal skewers. 

    3. Brush with a liberal coating of barbecue sauce or marinade on the ribs for a glaze. Or season ribs with a rub, like one of our Moe Cason rubs!

    4. To cook: Place directly on the grill for about 3 hours at 250 degrees. Remove the twine or meat skewers before serving.
