    I've smoked pork shoulders, boston butts, turkeys, chicken and fish, but one of the two things I've not attempted are ribs and brisket. So I want to remedy that. I bought a rack of pork ribs and want to know what's your favorite / best way to cook them? I've got a Big Green Egg, so I'm ready to roll.

    Smoked!

    3-2-1 method!
    3hrs uncover
    2hrs wrapped in foil
    1hr unwrapped

    Season the way you do a butt.

    I like to mix 2 parts brown sugar an 1 part rub, when you wrap sprinkle that on it!

    Great method above!
    I keep my egg around 230F for all smoking. Use pecan or apple. I use mustard as a binder for the rub and generally let the rub set for 24 hrs first. Also, set the ribs out in advance so they are room temp...will prevent as large of a fluctuation in egg temp. I also sprinkle a bit more rub on when I "unfoil" them. Or BBQ instead of extra rub. Let em rest a bit before chopping. Hope it works well for you.

    PS. If you have a vertical rack for ribs on the egg, I think it makes a difference...I like mine

    I did my wild boar ribs in my fire pit, covered in aluminum foil. I drilled a hole in the side to regulate airflow, and used a stick I found in the yard to adjust it. Empty beer cans stuffed with wet oak wood chips from the tree they cut down next door provided the smoke. I used the leaf blower to get a good bed of coals going quickly. No rubs, no sugar, just salt and pepper. I was able to keep them at around 210 for 8 hours...fucking delicious.That's my method.

    Already had the blower, shot the ribs..maybe 30 cents for the ammo, already had the beer cans, wood chips were free from the yard, already had the drill...aluminum foil, 50 cents.

    Ok, it cost 80 cents.

    There are a variety of methods demonstrated in this thread. Some might be suitable for suburban golf dads, others for wilderness men.
