foil cook babybacks

Recommended Posts

If your wrapping in foil do you place it bone side up ( meat side down ) or do you have it so the meaty side is up and the bone side is down?  just wondering about what members have to say about their experience when doing a foil cook with back ribs specifically.  fee free to also address side ribs and this issue.  thanks.

When I do babbybacks, I get the grill going steady at 225 with the heat deflectors in place.

 

Bone side down unwrapped for 2 hours.

 

Then wrap and place meat side down for 2 hours.

 

Unwrap and flip during one more hour.

If I use foil I start the cook bone side down. When I'm ready for the foil I roll the ribs into the foil so it ends bone side up. This way the bones don't puncture the foil. When it's time to dry out the ribs I roll the ribs back out of the foil and they are bone side down again.
