    Default Boiling ribs before you grill them?

    My brother insists on boiling ribs before grilling them just wondering
    where this idea comes from?
    In my many years of being a cook and cooking at home I have never seen
    this done.The idea seems odd to me other than being in a huge rush to
    eat them..

    The only advantage to this is to save time. There are a dozen
    disadvantages to this though.

    At least try and convince him to cook them in the oven for a few
    hours at a low temp (250-275F), then finish on the grill. That will
    preserve much of the beef flavor and give you some grilled taste.

    If he can't do that, then have him grill pork baby back ribs only
    (no boiling necessary).

    Who said anything about beef?

    Slow braising for ribs is not unheard of. Actually, it tenderizes the
    fibers that keep the meat to the bone.

    So does roasting at 225-250 deg F for a few hours. Boiling ribs does nothing
    but remove flavor.

    (chrystonacrutch, how long does this go on!?)

    The OP didn't say about pork either, maybe mammoth ribs

    The OP didn't say how whatever ribs are to be eventually prepared... I
    think this is about stinkin' troll ribs.

    It would melt some of the fat off, which would avoid
    flare-ups if you barbeque incorrectly (using direct
    rather than indirect heat).

    Rub then with salt, pepper and garlic powder, stick them in a pan, cover and seal
    with foil and bake them at about 250-300 for a bout two hours.

    Do you understand the term "braising"?

    Mustard dipping sauce and a scoop of cheese grits would impress

    I'd bet a lot of people simmer them for a while before
    grilling but
    won't admit to it.
