bit over cooked but still tasty

2-2-1 for Baby Backs. 3-2-1 for spares.  2-2-1 should not have been over cooked. Did you add some apple juice when you wrapped them?

It was really a test run.never added anything to them

The juice just helps them braise more in their juices.

Ewan,

 

221, 321, 211, etc are meant as guidelines for ribs (Spare or BBs) at 225 degrees.   Sometimes the ribs cook quicker, sometimes they cook slower.   Do the "bend test" on ribs to check and see if/when they are ready.

this does work, of course it does not if you have most verticals and have to cut the ribs in two to fit.
