    They ended up sticking to the bones a bit more than they should have but they tasted great. My girlfriend doesn't like ribs so I haven't had an occasion to try again yet.

    They sure look good!

    Did you use the 3-2-1 method?

    Tell us a little about what you did.

    They look pretty good!  I have an MES30 and have done ribs a few times and they always turn out GREAT!!  Did you remember to pull the membrane off the back of the ribs?
  5. I used the 3-2-1 Method and yes, I pulled the membranes. :) Thanks everyone.

    Possibly more time in the foil then. Always look at your pullback on the bone. If not close to 1/2 inch, rewrap them for another 1/2 hour or so.

    one thing comes to mind that you didn't mention , when you foiled the ribs did you spritz them with some apple juice or some other liquid , that will help a lot
  8. Yeah I did spray them with some apple juice

    i'm with flash on this one, sounds like a little more time in the foil would have helped but 2 hrs usually gets it
