Should you flip ribs when grilling?

Indirect heat is preferable, at a temperature between 250F to 300F. (The low temperature prevents the sauce from burning as the ribs cook.) A rack of back ribs will take between 1 1/2 -2 hours to cook (with lid closed), and you should flip them approximately every 20 minutes. Baste with BBQ sauce each time you flip.

Subsequently, one may also ask, how long do ribs grill for?

Place the ribs right on the grill, using tongs to maneuver them into place. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 30 minutes on each side. After the first hour, move the ribs to direct medium heat and cook 20-40 minutes longer, or until the pork is tender (more on this in a minute).

Secondly, do you flip meat while smoking? As good practice, it won't hurt to flip or rotate your meat. Some smokers with a side firebox will produce much more heat on one side--when you flip or rotate your meat, you'll make sure that you are getting an even balanced cook. So yes, it's a good idea.

Beside this, do you cook ribs meat side up or down?

Place the ribs, bone side down, in the center of the grate over the drip pan and away from the heat. (If your grill has limited space, stand the racks of ribs upright in a rib rack.) If cooking on a charcoal grill, toss half of the wood chips on each mound of coals. Cover the grill and cook the ribs for 45 minutes.

Is it better to boil ribs before cooking?

Pros. Since the ribs are fatty, many cooks choose to parboil spareribs for a short time or boil for an extended period of time to tenderize the rib meat. It is important that you simmer the ribs rather than cook them at a full boil for a long time. The heat of a boil can result in tough meat.
