Camping 3-1-1 Spares

With the fire ban still in effect in Oklahoma, campfire meals were not an option... so I took my little table top charcoal grill camping with me.



After cooking breakfast one morning, I spread out the remaining hot coals for a rack of spares.



Sprinkled the ribs with Season All...






Let them cook over the low coals for about 3 hours...
then wrapped in foil with some beef stock, garlic and onion powders...





I'm not fond of "fall off the bone" ribs, I prefer them with a little bite. So instead of the usual 3-2-1 method of cooking, I watched the pull back on the bone and went with 3 hours direct, 1 hour foiled and 1 hour back on the grill to finish. 3-1-1






made a pot of beans to go with the ribs using the "icky" campsite provided charcoal grill. :)
onions, bacon, beans and seasonings....






Sauced the ribs the last 30 minutes of cooking...






I was happy with the way the little cooker handled the ribs. I added a few hot coals once during the 5 hour cook.



Was a pretty easy camp meal and left plenty of time for fishin'. :)

You made great use out of the little grill. It takes real skill to do that on one of those.
