Recipe Notes

*Once in a while, you get a really meaty rib or two, usually on the ends, that may require a little extra cooking time.

I find 3 ribs per person to be a good serving size when served with sides. If making for a crowd, you can do two racks at the same time, just swap the top and bottom halfway through to ensure everything is cooking evenly.
