  • --Weber--


: Memphis Style refers to the John Wills method
and recipe of John Wills Bar-B-Que Pit, in east
Memphis Tennessee. John and his family have provided
pork ribs "crunchy brown on the outside and lean white
in the middle with a sweet and tangy sauce."
Step #1: The Memphis starts with rubbing a spicy dry
marinade into the meat before cooking.
Step #2: Tending the ribs on a long, low, smokey
fire, of white oak or hickory. Basting with a second
marinade, turning often on a horizontal rack, every
half hour or so. Cook over a (225F) degree, smokey
fire. Cooking could take 5 to 9 hours depending on the
size of the cooker etc. Stop using the basting sauce
about an hour before serving.
Step #3: Warm the Memphis sweet sauce and either
brush it on during the last 20 minutes of cooking or
serve it on the side.
Weber Method;
See #1 above and then. cook on low indirect fire on
a large weber kettle with chunk style charcoal. Use a
water filled drip pan under the ribs, a boiling pot of
water over the coals. Stand the ribs up on edge in a
vertical rack, and try to cook the ribs on a calm day,
(wind under 10mph).
Cook 5 to 7 hours basting often (every half hour),
with the basting sauce, STOP using the basting sauce
about an hour before serving.
See step #3 above for sweet sauce tips.
