Hard boiled eggs.... peeling issues

I bought a dozen and a half of eggs. Last week I boiled the dickens out of six for about 12 minutes and submerged in cold water for 10 mins- no problem peeling from shell. This week from same carton so not as fresh, I slow boiled because I had more time and that's what the experts say to do. Submerged for same time and had a heck of a time peeling them without the whites breaking apart. I think from now on it is boiling at full tilt for me.

Ribs and Boiling [split from Ontario]

Funny story- I never boiled ribs before- but having 10 men come over to do my roof and working, i used a recipe from allrecipes to save some time. So boil ribs in onion and peppercorns and garlic for 30 min- then marinade and put in fridge for at least 24 hours- then grill for 30 min. Well the big boys are doing my windows this weekend and i told my husband that i would make ribs like I used which means slow cooking for the day. Guess what the boys want the exact same ribs I made the last time they were around. HMM thinking there might be something to this boiling method.
