156/18 – The Rib Man Rib Roll:
It’s been a while since I have had a Rib Man Rib Roll and I have tried to cook them myself before and failed, time to try again!
2kg of Pork Breast Ribs from Turner and George – £17.60 – The Rib Man uses babyback ribs which I would have used but I had these in my freezer so thought I would give them a go! The breast ribs are meatier than the babybacks which I didn’t think would be a bad thing.
Rib Rub from The Ribman online store – £2 per pack.
Two packs of rib rub sprinkled liberally over all surfaces of the ribs.
The Kamado Joe was fired up with a full fire basket of Oxford Charcoal Marabu Lumpwood. No deflectors in and once it was at 200C it was time to cook.
Bone side down and just a few minutes to colour the bones and warm things up.
Once the bones started colouring up the meat was wrapped in loads of tin foil making sure it was wrapped tight then back on the grill. Deflectors in now to protect the meat. Temperature was set to 375f for this stage.
The ribs were rotated and stood up on the bone edge during the cook. After 3 hours cooking I left them to rest for 3 hours and they came out looking like this.
The bones came out easily and the meat pulled easily by hand. The colour wasn’t quite right so I added another pack of Rib Rub!
It looked and smelt fantastic!
White roll from the local bakers, rib meat on top.
It had to be topped with Holy F**K – £3.75 from The Rib Man online shop.
I made sure to put plenty on.
Roll top on, ready to go. It looked awesome!
Time to Eat:
I was looking forward to eating this!
I had the idea of cooking this when I cooked the Ko Rican style ribs:
Rather than the usual long, 3-2-1 rib cook the Ko Rican ribs cooked in 2 hours and I remembered Mark cooked his ribs wrapped in foil too.
The rib meat was really tasty, loads of meat on the one rack. The rub and sauce combo was fantastic and although the rolls weren’t as good as Mark’s they were really good and dare I say close 😉
Next time I would start the cook earlier and leave them to cook for an extra hour and leave them to rest for longer, maybe as long as 8 hours. I would try babyback ribs and put multiple racks in one foil bundle too. Great to be able to cook ribs so quickly and get such good results from them too.
