How hot should the grill be to cook pork ribs?

Strictly speaking, ribs shouldn't be grilled; they should be barbequed. The reason is that grillage is a hot, fast cooking method. Ribs are tough and contain a lot of connective tissue. It takes considerable time to convert the connective tissue into collagen, which is tender and, if you try to cook that long over a flame, you get pure carbon :}.

Instead, pile the coals in the barbecue on one side and leave the ribs on the other. Control the burn using the vents and keep it covered almost all the time. The grill should smoke some, as the smoke will flavor the ribs. Plan on adding fuel about once every half hour.

If you stick an instant-read thermometer into the cover of the BBQ unit, a temp of 225F is good. Lower, and cooking time increases. Much higher than 250F and you've left the land of low-and-slow BBQ.

Starting raw, consider cooking ribs by this method for a minimum of 3 hours and as much as 8 hours, depending on the temp, amount and thickness of the ribs, etc. You don't want the meat to fall off the bone -- but you want close to that.

One last word: Apply sugar containing sauces near the end of this processes or they'll burn.

As a Christian, I am to imitate (meaning of disciple) the life of Christ. To this extent, I follow His dietary customs - abstaining from pork, shellfish, etc as found in the Dietary Laws of Judaism (primarily Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14).

The main Scripture used to say this law is no longer in affect has most pointing to Peter in Acts 10 and his dream.

What is the value of a pig bacon press?

The press lays on the bacon slices and allows the meat to stay in contact with the hot pan. You don't get the bacon curling up at the ends or bubbling in the middle while it cooks so you end up with a straight, flat piece of cooked bacon when you're done. This way you don't have parts of the bacon more cooked than any other part.
