6 Pounds of Ribs: Let's initiate the new grill

For my Birthday a couple weeks back, my sweet wife got me a Traeger Grill. I was so excited that I was speechless-first time in my life she mentioned. After putting the grill together I needed to break it in. With what I thought? Thankfully my mother-in-law had given us a large rack of ribs; over 6 pounds. 5 hours later we had some ribs.

Lesson learned: the meat was tender but the sheer amount of it make me realize that it needs a lot more seasoning. It was a fun experience & I have since cooked smoky meatballs and an apple rosemary turkey on the grill. I may never go inside again.

Hi Rochelle, I would love some additional rib recipes. I rubbed them with Cajun seasoning (http://hometownslop.blogspot.com/2012/06/cajun-seasoning-brings-bay...), smoked them on the grill for 2 hours and then set the grill to 225 degrees for 3 hours. They probably could have gone another hour. Probably doing them in a wet marinade the night before would have made them more flavorful.

It was a fabulous experience and I look forward to many more.

Those ribs sound so good.  I love ribs.  My dad used to cook them for hours over charcoal.   He would season them the night before and let them "marinate."  Then he would cook them over low heat for several hours.  By the time he was done the seasoning had gone all through them and they were fall off the bone tender.  As he has gotten older he has pretty much given up grilling.  My brother in law is also quite the rib master.  So far I have not been brave enough to grill ribs since I am sure I could never make them as flavorful as Dad's.  Your post makes me want to take the plunge an try it.  In fact I have a some beef ribs in the freezer.  I was going to cook them in the crockpot but I think I might try grilling them.  What did you use to season them?  How hot did you set your grill?  How long did you cook them?
