Rib help

Discussion in 'Pork' started by restless hog, Aug 10, 2014.

  1. Hello all, I just cooked a couple of racks of baby backs yesterday. They were absolutely delicious, and falling apart. I don't mind that for home. But, I have a comp in a few weeks for ribs only, my question is. How do I keep them from falling apart? No wrap, less time? I was using the 221 method. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I would say less time would be your best bet. No foil!
  4. Thanks guys. I forgot to say I was between 225 and 250 temp wise

    I run mine at 225 for around 4-5hrs. I did ribs last night and they pulled off the bone.

    What was the internal temp when you pulled them?
  7. Not sure. I've never checked IT of ribs before. What should they be for bite thru?
  8. I do mine to 190. I got that from watching the TV show BBQ Pitmasters.
