MAN!!! Those look delicious!!!  What was your time/temp/wrap profile for this cook? What measure did you use for "doneness"??

Thanks for compliment Remmy700P.



Here is what I did. I followed Yotezz directions and used his rub recipe he posted, earlier in the thread.

I followed this pretty much to a t. It all matters in your preference in how you like the texture of your ribs. If you like them falling off the bone, then you want to use the foil in the 2-2-1 method (preferred method for baby back ribs), if not use what Yotzee has posted and they come out with a perfect tug, which I like.


I have just been smoking for 2 weeks so if I have made or a mistake or have said something not accurate, then hopefully someone will set it straight.
