Yes, I leave them whole and cut a few bones off when ordered.
I also cook them till almost done (I still don't use a thermometer, just eyeball it.disclaimer- kids, DON'T try this at home, LOL),
Then put them in an aluminum pans and cover and throw back on grill.No need to splash, the juices will help it self baste.
I might add I use 4.3 and up ribs that average 5-6 lbs each.
My prices are slightly low for a reason.
There's an old story of economics that involve skimpy bag Bob and Jeff the Jew.(please,no hate mail.thats what their nicknames were and I didn't name them that)
I'll tell that interesting story in another thread.But the short story is,they thought by increasing the price and decreasing the portion that they could make a killing.NOT TRUE!!!
I try to give them a fair amount of meat(hence the large racks)at a fair price, so they'll come back,instead of feeling I've ripped them off.

Bro..now that u have been running for a while, what can u tell us about profit vs cost? Especially when it comes to different foods such as ribs or wings. What about costs for wood and coals, or labor? Consider your best day of the week.. how much do you spend on meat, other items, and supplies? How much do you make in sales? And how much do u clear when the day is done? And how many hours does it take from start to finish?

I know brother.. it’s all about fun on this forum.. that’s one of the things I love about it. That’s also probably why there ain’t much chatter about business.. I’m starting to get it now(look for my upcoming thread - Lost my touch)
