Gonna Try Ribs

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I've smoked plenty of butts and briskets, but never ribs.  Wife wants some baby backs.  What do I need to know?  I prep my brisket and butts with mustard, then dry rub and start smoking.  Everything has come off nicely.  Are ribs any different?

Not really, just quicker. IMHO I like Spares better, more meat.

 

Good luck and look for this :

700  when lifted in the center with Tongs.

Remove and rest... open and eat tongue.gif.

 

Have fun and as always . . .

Answers to this question will be all over the map.   Higher heat (275) versus low and slow.  To foil or not to foil. If you do foil, how long to leave them wrapped.  Yada, yada, yada.   

 

Oldschool prefers the straight ahead approach, put the meat on low and cook til done.   Don't know that I would argue with that  :)

Old school sounds good with me.  I don't foil butts or other, so I think I'll stick to that method.  Thanks!
