Making spare ribs today using the 3-2-1 method. I just took them out of the foil and back in the smoker for the last hour. It was very messy and hot trying to get these ribs back in the smoker without them falling apart. Does any one just open the foil for the last hour or do they need to be on the rack? Thanks.
Leave in foil?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I don't think that they need to have to be on the grate. Get your self some carving gloves and then it will be a lot easier to move them from the foil to the grill. Another tool that helps is a BIG set of thongs from a resturant supply company. If they are two fall apart for you maybe a little less time in the foil next time.

I got me a pair of these and they're great and very inexpensive.....gloves
As the others have said, adjust your foiling time if you don't want them falling off the bone. I don't like to go more than 1 to 1 1/4 hours in the foil.
