    1. At what temp should you smoke them?

    2. What temp should you bring them up to?

    3. Can you use a meat probe and where is the best place to use it for accurate readings?

    4. Should you rest the meat like others before eating?

    5. Pork Lion = baby back correct?

    3-2-1 is for regular spareribs
    2-2-1 is for Baby back ribs

    As for temp 225* is what I try to get a little over or a little under will not hurt. These times are approximate and if you use them it will come out fine most of us shorten the times a bit once we have experience doing them
  5. I personally like the 2-2-1 method for spares, the 3 in the 3-2-1 is just too done. Remember when you foil for the middle 2hrs. spritz before sealing to hold in moisture.
