"Hot and Fast" Pork Ribs Recipe on My BBQ42 Charcoal Grill
If you've been dreaming of owning a BBQ42 Chicken Cooker, but haven't been able to justify the cost, you may not realize all the things you can cook with it:
As you can see, there are many ways to use a BBQ42 outside of grilling chicken. In my opinion, any serious backyarder needs one of these for entertaining guests, putting meat in the freezer for the family, or helping with small events.
"Hot and Fast" Ribs Recipe
Here are the steps I used to cook these ribs on my BBQ42 Charcoal Grill. I'm cooking 6 racks of baby back ribs. They should take a total of 2 to 2-1/2 hours to cook.
What About the Smoke Flavor?
Ribs cooked using this method will have a delicious char-grilled flavor, but less smoke flavor than you might want. I found that some of the ribs got very dark on the bottom side, but the meat remained tender and delicious. If you are worried about them lacking a distinct smoke flavor, you could use one of these methods:
Are you looking for a BBQ smoker trailer like this one that can both smoke and grill a variety of meats for a crowd? We'd love to build you one! It's easy to customize these with the upgrades that are right for your needs and budget:
I used two full 11-pound bags of 100% hardwood charcoal briquettes.
Charcoal mixed and spread evenly in the pan.

Now the grill is ready to close and stabilize at 275 degrees. Refer to my list of steps above for specific instructions.
You may fire the grill before or after you season the ribs.
I'm cooking baby back ribs, which don't usually require much trimming. I like to remove the membrane and trim off any loose pieces of meat and thicker portions of the ribs to help them cook more evenly.
Dust the entire surface of the ribs with Meadow Creek Black Pepper Brisket Rub or your favorite rib rub.
I like to let the meat sweat for at least a few minutes after seasoning it before putting it on the smoker.
The BBQ42 is a practical and attractive add-on for these trailers.
This is how I like to arrange the ribs on the grate. You could get more on, but for your first batch, I recommend doing no more than 6.
In my experience, ribs often don't cook at the same speed, so I chose to use the flat grate, which makes it easy to treat each rack individually.
Aren't they looking pretty?
I glazed these with the fantastic Killer Hogs BBQ Sauce as they were finishing on the grill.
Look at that beautiful finish!
Sliced and ready to serve!
Just look at the beautiful color of these ribs...
