Doing ribs tomorrow on the BGE. Ernie got them ready...
cleaned out the ash and filled it with Mesquite. Have only done ribs in the MES....and have been putting them in bone down....safe to assume they should be done the same way?
I don't know about altering, I'm just going to smoke for 5 hrs straight, then check. I will add sauce during the last hour, just don't know when the last hour will be. It may take 7 hrs total.
Normally you don't want to go over I'd say 300- 325* for hot and fast...I'd say the average is 250-275* At the higher temps they cook way faster so be sure to start probing at around 2 1/2 to 3 hours so you can gauge how much longer they might need or if they are actually done.
I do ribs at 250, they took about 7 hours last time without wrapping. I test doneness with the bend test, not internal temp. When you lift one end of the rack and it forms a nice curve, they are done. Happy smoking!
