Making great tasting ribs is certainly a little more involved than grilling a great tasting steak or burger, but that doesn’t mean it has to be difficult. The concern for most people is that this is a task better left to professional pitmasters or your local paper-towel-on-the-table BBQ joint. So many of us are just afraid of messing it up.
But here's the good news: you won't. As long as you understand that ribs are a working muscle and become their best selves with the use of low and slow heat. You can do this with any grill. Literally - any. grill. You don't need a dedicated smoker, and you can even finish the project in your oven if you'd like.
When I was a kid, aluminum foil had three connotations: that awesome foil ball on Pee Wee's Play House, the roll we used to make robot costumes, and that stuff that I accidentally put in the microwave one time and blue sparks shot all over. That was a fun day.
Turns out, there's a solid thirty other things you can do with it, in the kitchen, garage, garden, office, and, of course, when making stuff.
