Ive read a TON of stickies and YouTube videos on how to do spare ribs. I have my sauces and rubs ready. Only thing i am having problems locating is actual times. Ive seen many threads from searches that people wait instead of probing because its hard. They say to usually wait till they "fall off the bone". Now are you actually taking tongs and pulling meat off the bone?? I know there is a good debate on spritzing every hour but you loose smoke in the process. Should i just leave my ribs in my WSM for 4 hours, check, then spritz and foil until the 6th hour?? I also have read about the ribs should bend while trying to pick-up. I didnt read any articles on how to tell if im over doing them.
what i had in mind was leave everything in and not look for 4 hours while watching the temp every hour
on the 4th hour spritz once
5th hour foil and spritz
6th hour pull out of smoker.
