4. Turn them occasionally.

5. After 2.5 h start preparing your veggies.

6. Cut pumpkin to your liking (we like big pieces), toss it with oil olive, salt and rosemary. Roast it for 30-40 minutes in the Dutch oven. Pumpkin is ready when is golden and tender. At the same time, I also coat washed whole potatoes in olive oil and salt and wrap them in aluminium foil. Potatoes and pumpkin are baked on set aside charcoals. 

7. Remove foil, coat meat with the rest of the glaze. Place the ribs directly on the grill for another 10 minutes.
