Paul: They buy them ready made and flash frozen. Thaw and pop on the grill or bake in oven. You can buy them from Kansas City Steaks, Omaha Steaks or Corky's. I've made them from scratch also, but the restaurants must use the frozen type.....they are great for a crowd.

I usually use a smoker when making ribs, but this looks like something worth trying! I especially like the idea of the "orange bed" and think that may make the ribs over the top!
