    how come you don't put the ribs on the actual grilling surface? is it purely a matter of real estate or do they cook better that way?

    Nice pictures - do tell more about the rib setup. I'm also a charcoal man, but sadly haven't done ribs yet. What is down by the coals on the right side of the grill - wood chips, which type?

    I only have the small 18" Weber Kettle. The basic set up is:

    1. Bottom vent about 1/2 way open
    2. Coals piled up on the right side for indirect cooking
    3. Drip pan 1/2 filled with beer directly under the ribs
    4. Ribs covered in rub in the rack
    5. Top vent completely open directly over the ribs

    I tried to keep the temperature around 225-250 for the entire cooking time. I played with the bottom vent air flow in the beginning and added a few pieces of charcoal later on to keep the temperature steady.

    For the first 2 hours, I would add a handful of soaked wood chips every 30 mins directly on top of the coals. I used Stubbs brand chips from Lowes. I believe they are a mix of apple, hickory and oak. The meat will only take smoke for about 2 hours, any more and it will start to turn bitter. Total cooking time was around 5 hours.

    Here's the website I got my ideas from http://www.thesmokering.com/HowTo/weberribs/default.jsp

    What kind of flowers are those? The resemble bluebonnets but I don't think they are.
