I like to put them in an electric slow roaster for about 5 hours.

LOL I too thought this was a BBQ thread.
I'm going to my BBQ joint tommorow.
The guy wood smokes his ribs and uses a recipe thats over 100 years old, was his Grandfathers recipe who happened to be a slave.
It is the best BBQ I've ever had in my life
It's in Pittsburgh, Wilsons RIBS.

Man, I thought this was going to be about bbq ribs as well...lol.
When I get side pains, it's usually because I'm pushing myself too hard for too long or not focusing on my breathing. When I'm focusing on my breathing, and pacing myself, I don't have much side pains at all and when I do, they go away pretty quickly after walking for a minute, then I'm right back to running.
Just make sure you're taking deep breaths as you're running so that you're getting enough oxygen and pace yourself. If you're running to fast and having pain, slow down a bit so that it's comfortable. I'm not saying slow down so much that it's not challenging (although I'd argue that any type of running is challenging regardless of speed :P), you'll have to find that point where you're challenging yourself yet not being too uncomfortable.
For example, if you're able to run at 6 mph without any pain for the whole run, you're probably going to burn more calories than running at 8 mph for a few minutes, having to walk until the pain goes away, running and repeating that for the course of the run.
Then again, it's been shown in some studies that interval training burns more calories and is better for you than consistent exercise. If your goal is to simply burn more calories, you might want to try interval running. If your goal is to run at a steady pace for long periods of time, then you'll probably want to focus on running pain free and a slower pace and then as you get more comfortable, increase the speed.

If you don't think the place is on fire when you get out of your car, they might be doing something other than BBQ in there.
I take my ribs dry and my pork sandwich with cole slaw on top. I add just a touch of sauce, generally tomato based (though I like any good one), and I like the spicy/hot ones - in fact if a BBQ place doesn't have one I mix it myself with the ones they DO have.
A couple weeks ago I had the most amazing sauce I've had in ages, which was actually based on rhubarb.
I've refused to eat at more than one "BBQ" establishment because they were grilling, not smoking. No smoke... what a joke.

A little baby oil on the ribs is ok.

Agreed on the dry rubs... Sauce is for Famous Daves to hide their crappy, fat filled meat. I use a little from time to time though, but usually keep it pretty light.
Damn, I through this would be a BBQ thread too! Got my hopes up for nothing! . . .
At any rate, I had similar issues and noticed it was worse if I had eaten a full meal in the last hour, drank too much water too fast, or not warmed up enough. I would notice an improvement when I had a more gradual and prolonged warm up. Basically I would start at a very slow pace and work my way up to a near run over 8-10 minutes.
Also, as I've lost weight it has seemed to go away, or at least not be as bad.
I knew the subject would be a hit in a guys forum. Now that I think of it, I think I might BBQ tonight! :)(There are just some things I can't give up...mainly steak, jerky, caesars, and beer!)
The article helps. :) Unfortunately I will now have to focus on my breathing while I run rather than other...distractions.

Damn, I thought this was going to be a new recipe for barbecued ribs!
The side stich is a common, though not very well understood problem. Most theorize is is caused from a spasm of the diaphragm muscle, which is involved in the regulation of breathing. When you get one, if you slow down to a walk for a bit and concentrate on deep, full breaths, it should subside. As you become more accoustomed to your routine and cardiovascularly fit, they tend to diminish in frequency as well. You can also try to going longer after eating before you run and making sure you warm up properly (including less intense aerobic activity) before you run.
Or you could just switch to a good brisk incline walk or other cardio activity and be done with it.

Oh dammit! I thought this was going to be a bbq thread.
I can only attest to bbq expertise, on this, I'll have to defer. Does this help?
I posted this in the fitness section, but it seems like everyone there has questions...so naturally I feel I should seek elsewhere if I want answers. (I'm also very impatient.:P)
Again, I know this is the Guys Lounge, but I prefer this area of the forum. :)
SO! I keep getting stitches in my right rib area when I run, but I never noticed them when I wasn't running on an incline. I usually slow down rather than reduce the incline, but it discourages me because sometimes it takes a while for the pain to subside and I've missed out on valuable calorie burning/oxygen intake inhancing running time. :P
