How to make it
- The Overnight "Prep"
- Prepare the ribs by removing the membrane on the back and generously rub them down. Once rubbed, cut each slab in half. Bag them and refrigerate overnight. When you are ready to cook,
- remove ribs from refrigerator and allow them to reach room temperature. Light the grill and get the temperature up to 250ºF degrees.
- The "Bath"
- This recipe replaces basting with bathing. In a large disposable aluminum pan, mix the Wicker's, Italian dressing with about ¼ cup of rub. Place the pan on the grill to keep warm. Once the grill has reached 250ºF degrees, place all the ribs on the grill and let the smokin' begin! The temperature will drop a bit, but that's OK. Maintain a temperature of 225ºF degrees. After an hour has passed, the ribs will be ready for their first bath. Using a good pair of tongs, work each slab through the bath pan. Give them all a good dousing and return them to the heat. Repeat this process each hour until the ribs have been on the grill for four (4) hours.
- The "Finish"
- At this point, take each half-slab and give it one last "bath". Place on aluminum foil for wrapping. Drizzle honey on slab and finish off with one last dash of dry rub. Repeat process for each slab. Place 3 to 4 slabs per foil package and wrap tightly. After all the ribs have been wrapped, place them back on the grill for two (2) more hours.
- Remove foil packages from grill as needed and serve.
