Well tomorrow I am going to smoke some ribs for my dad that I got at the butcher. I paid $5.99 a lb for them so I would really like them to turn out perfect. I usually get the cheper ones but hey Fathers Day is only once a year right. My setup is WSM and BBQ Guru. So a few questions. Rub them down tonight or right before I cook them? Also I have seen people use mustard. Whats the popular opinion on this? Last time I did ribs I cooked at 225 deg 2-2-1 and they seemed a little dry to me. I am thinking maybe I should lower the temp some. Maybe 210? Also maybe cut the time back some as well. To foil or not to foil? Is this a trick for competions only or should I keep foiling? I plan on mixing some apple juice and olive oil in a spray bottle and basting the ribs every hour or so. Fill the water pan in the WSM? Thanks for all help and input.
