The ribs were really good. The green egg is an awesome grill/smoker. It is so easy to adjust the heat in the thing and keep it very consistent. You can also cook pizza in the thing if you buy a pizza stone. I've also done steaks in it and they were a perfect mid-rare ( you can get the thing upto 700 degrees easy!) I've also smoke a whole chicken. Oh that was so so good. It only takes a handful of wood too.
