BBQ Pork Ribs on the Big Green Egg Heat Egg to 300 degrees Use you favorite rub Place on green egg indirect cooking. (Use a drip pan ) Cook for two hours don't lift the egg. After two hours take ribs out using foil coat ribs with your favorite BBQ sauce and 1/4 cup of apple juice so ribs don't dry out. Cook another hour. I did lift he egg 1 hour 1/2 into the first cook to add russet potatoes wrapped in foil.
