I score mine for the same reason but it also makes sense for rub application and smoke inhalation.  I do go one step further.  I remove the blood veins and accompanying membrane as well.

That is for sure - I started scoring to improve the smoke but then discovered that it does shrink back and I like the overall effect!  All this talk is making me hungry for ribs!  Guess I know what I'm doing this weekend...

Did 6 racks of back ribs on the Traeger yesterday.  Started at 11:30, off to play tennis from 2PM - 4PM.  Back with a few buds and beers to finish the cook and chowed down at 5:30.  This pic was taken with about 1 hour left in the cook.  They came out great.

They look really good. At my age, I would rather play with a fire than play tennis. But if you can get ribs that look that good by playing tennis, maybe I'll start playing.
