If you go this route, I have a spicy bean recipe that will be a real nice compliment. Especially good if you can place the pan of beans beneath the pork and let them catch the drippings. Or you could go Georgia style and serve up a Brunswick Stew instead of the beans. This basically a BBQ version of a kitchen sink stew that always goes over well.

 

For pulled pork I figure 1/3 lb of meat for every person as a way to calculate how much you'll need. If you're doing ribs in addition, cut the pulled pork back to 1/4 lb per person. Plan on cutting the ribs into portions of two or three ribs and use them as an appetizer or side rather than a main dish. Then a couple of cold salads like potato or cole slaw and a dessert would round things out nicely.

 

If you post up what type of grill you'll be using we may be able to fine tune woods, rubs and techniques.

this is a new way of thinkin about the ribs and i like it cause they take up so much room....the chopped pork sammiches & beans with potato saled should be the main and keep everybody happy.....i'm tryin get the warehose guys ta show up that would push it ta 35-40 people and i don't know if kids are invited or not but those little f'ers can have dogs if need be :D just talkin this out and that advice helped a ton kid....i just have a small weber propane ......HEY it's not cheatin if i do the chopped pork ahead of time and have in the oven is it :wacko: then just ribs on acouple grills

I'm thinking you may want to do the pulled pork a day ahead of time and just warm it in a chafing dish (metal tray with a cover, uses sterno underneath to keep things warm), let them take what they want for a sandwich. Two 5 lb pork loins or two 8 lb pork butts SHOULD cover the full crew but its always better to have more. If you run out of food or serve small portions, people will bitch. Remember, if you cook too much pulled pork, it freezes really well.

 

Propane means that you'll have better temperature control, that's not a bad thing. What are you doing, two maybe three racks at a time? With baby backs you can get seven two rib portions (the last will have three) or five three rib portions out of it. That means that for 40 people you'll need eight racks of ribs. Using CD's foil method means a cooking time of 4 hours (quicker than mine), you'll do nothing but cook ribs all day. You'll either want to prep them ahead of time and use a chafing dish to warm them up or use an alternate cooking method or my favorite, convince the good woman that you need a big smoker. :D

If you need to raise heat it's better to do it at the end than the beginning IMO.

:D Ribs sucked.....when i tried cuttin'em apart it was like cuttin through jelly plus they were burnt black and stuck to the foil on the bottom....don't know if it was just a really fatty slab or what but they went right in the garbage.....not even good enough ta throw in with the beans.....the Loin was great as usual better actually cause it was all white pork and none of the dark chit....Ribs and i just don't get along glad i practiced smokin'em on the grill now instead of later :wacko:

i didn't see much meat at all just a bunch of slippery chit and ya where it met the foil it was charred...no more ribs case closed :wacko:

 

 

i haven't seen anything like that. as far as the charring...... likely sauce went on and heat was too high (or meat wasn't monitored). i know KC, CD, and unta go longer with their sauce towards the end than i do, but i think they are using a lower heat than i am... i just use it as a quick glaze to finish over direct heat.

I don't sauce at all, but you're right about CD and unta.

 

Nuke, do you know what temperature your grill was at for the cook? Did you use direct or indirect heat? Did you prep the ribs by pulling off the membrane on the bone side?

not sure on temp.....the one on the grill doesn't work just had it on low as possible after a high start ta get the chips smokin

direct heat ...2 burner tubes with metal "A" frames over them

didn't pull off membrane

only time i've had luck w/ ribs is boiling then finish off real quick on the grill :wacko:

I like indirect heat if at all possible. That means turning off one of the burners. It'll help keep the temperature lower as well.

 

On the bone side of the ribs, there is a very thin membrane that should be pulled off. If there isn't a piece big enough to grab onto, use a screwdriver against the bone to get it started. Grab it with a paper towel, it's slippery stuff and you won't be able to grip with your fingers, and pull. It should come off in a sheet.

 

I guess I should do up some ribs for the blog. I've been meaning to but I've got so many thing in the queue that I haven't gotten around to it.

That's the old standard. I wouldn't own anything else for a charcoal grill.

 

Edit to add: you are doing something wrong if your shoulders are coming out greasy.
