Abstract (Document Summary)

We're to rank the appearance, tenderness and taste of piping-hot ribs in 12 numbered containers spread out in a roped-off section of the beer tent. Tender baby back ribs and heftier side ribs are to be treated equally. Scores range from 1 (worst barbecue you've had) to 9 (best barbecue you've had).

Red Devil ribbers smoke side ribs for 21/2 hours over hickory chips in a Southern Pride Smoke Chef. They "relax the meat" in a heat-and-hold oven for 30 minutes at 150F, warm it on a propane grill and baste it with sauce for the final 5 to 10 minutes on a maple-fuelled grill.
