After looking through about 50 threads, I would like some clarifications on prepping and cooking two racks of baby backs. I use a Smoke Hollow PS9500 4-1 setup, it has an offset stick burner. I'll be using charcoal to start the fire and Hickory and maybe apple wood also.
1. I'm going to try 2-2-1 method as I don't like my ribs falling off the bone, I like a little tug. Are there adjustments to this method so the meat wont fall right off the bone when you pick them up or are no adjustments needed?
2. Plan on using spicy mustard with some type of rub recipe that I will probably find here. I have read people rub an hour before or let sit in the fridge over night. What would be the longest I should let them get happy?
3. For the 1 of the 2-2-1 method. Is that just heat or am I smoking for that hour too? If so, am I going to have to finish on my gas side for the last hour? Remember I have a 4-1 setup, so the smoker actually uses my charcoal side as the smoker also.
4. Thanks for any input you guys can give. Maybe a good rib rub could be shared or just a link to it anyway.
Pics are further down in the thread!
