    So having seen a video on west Tennessee dry ribs I decided to make some up.used loin back ribs took the membrane off then just applied some kosher salt to the ribs, then put them on the smoker naked at 275 for 3 1/2 hours. used hickory wood spritzing them every 30 min with some apple cider vinegar, then at the end took them off rested them for 20 min and applied the dry seasoning. a different style of ribs as opposed to wet and sticky but very flavourful and tasty
    b-one and disco like this.

    3 1/2 hrs seems 30 mins too short. How was the tenderness? They look great though! I have been advised by competition folks

    2 hrs 275
    45 wrapped
    20 mins unwrapped with optional sauce every 10 mins

    Happy smoking! :grilling_smilie:

    the tenderness was great  came off the bone nice and clean. they were smaller loin backs  so  if they were bigger like 3 pounders  you could prob do them for 4 hours.  from what ive read on west Tennessee dry ribs  you dont foil them, they are supposed to be cooked hot and fast with no rub on them. just naked on the smoker  just spritzed with  juice or cider vinegar  then the seasoning is applied at the end. i just went  by what Carey Bringle the pitmaster  of the peg leg porker said he does  his at temp and time wise, and they came out pretty good
