Getting ready for my first time using my Masterbuilt XL, and my plan is to break it in with 3 slabs of baby back ribs for my family. I was thinking of trying the 3-2-1/2-2-1 method, but have one question: the second phase, I am reading to put the ribs in foil. Do I still do this in a vertical smoker with a water pan? Or is the water pan putting enough moisture in the box to do the job?
Also, I was planning of saucing them with my wife's fave bbq sauce in the last hour; anyone else do this, and with what kind of results?
