When the ribs are done after using the 3-2-1 method, do I take them out and rest them for a while? Wrap them in foil? For how long?
Thanks alot for the info, my first try on smoking ribs!
Hi Rod. IMO, any meat you smoke will be better if you give it some time to rest. Since they don't have a lot of meat on them compared to larger, thicker cuts of meat, less time is needed for ribs than those thicker cuts. I like to let ribs rest for about a half hour to 45 minutes, in foil on a rack in a slightly warm oven.
Good luck, and don't forget the Qview!
let them rest! I find it makes it taste better. i just toss the ribs whole in a foil pan and cover with foil and let rest 30-45 mins. they are hot enough without more heat IMO. but i'm sure any method will be fine. home cooked BBQ beats anything you get in a restaurant
Hehe, no kidding. Mine "rest" for as long as it takes me to pull the racks from the smoker, slice them into individual bones and put them onto a serving platter.
They come off the cooker, get cut up and served in that order- takes 5 minutes, all the rest they need.
Cut them up??? They don't last that long. I would be afraid of cutting fingers off all the extra little hands that show up when the smoker opens.
, all the little hands at my house are now all grown up. If my daughter is at home she'll be taking the pictures
