When it comes to grilling ribs, like the Margarita-Glazed Baby Back Ribs recipe found in Fine Cooking #112, often the biggest challenge is how to fit the racks on the grill. Ribs need to cook over indirect heat, so the section of the grate that’s over direct heat is out of bounds. On smaller grills, this means that fitting even two racks can be tricky.
Enter the rib rack (the tool, not the meat). This low-tech gadget, which looks like a file folder organizer, holds the racks in a vertical position, allowing you to cook as many as four racks in the same space as two lying flat.
