I read somewhere that it's not reliable or practical since you would need to test several spots and be very careful to avoid touching the bone. But I guess that's not a very strong argument. It...

Also made baby back ribs on Saturday. I'm frustrated by my apparent inability to tell when ribs are done. The bend test never works for me. By the time the cracks appear, most of the time, the...
