Steam bending ribs
- View SourceI found that the ribs needed to "cook" for over an hour when I bent
them in my boat. I tried the 15-30 minute routine and broke better
than half of them. After an hour and 15 minutes in the steamer I could
literally tie them in knots if I so desired. The ash that I used was 2
year old air dried that I found at a local sawmill.
