Been pretty good with pork butt. Took four times with brisket before it was good. My favorite, ribs took three times. The third time I tried the 3-2-1- method. Followed Jeff's instructions to the T. I have never, I said never had ribs so tender and so flavorful in my life. I may never order ribs out again! I don't usually take the time to comment on things I have tried from on-line but I will now. Thanks Jeff. Money well spent for the rub and sauce.
