I have some pork ribs that I want to barbecue, but being relatively inexperienced with BBQ and lacking a decent grill thermometer, I want to simplify things by cooking them partly in the oven and partly in the grill. Researching online has thrown up many variations as to temperature, timing, and which order to cook them in. So, some sub-questions:
- Is it better to grill the ribs first, then put them in the oven, or vice versa?
- In either case, is it best to use indirect or direct heat on the grill to get the necessary smokiness and glaze?
- What temperature should the ribs be cooked at in the oven and for roughly how long (I know outcome is more important than timing)
- Should the ribs be wrapped in foil in the oven for the entire cook?
FWIW my instinct is to grill (with some wood chips for smoke) first, then oven, but my concern then is how to get a good glaze.
