So I'm planning on doing my second smoke with my MES30 this Sunday. Like the first time, it will be baby back ribs again. The original plan was a butt, but the ribs were on sale & butts were not. I'm doing two racks. Last time, I did a shortened version of the 3-2-1. This time, I'm not planning on foiling anything. I want to see what the difference will be with the bark & such. Last time, I smoked at 225 with hickory chips. Since then, I spoke with a guy who runs a great, local BBQ joint. His advice was go to 270 for 4 hours, try my cherry wood chips I recently got & foil nothing. Is 270 too much? I'm not running a restaurant, so I'm not under pressure to get a large quantity done in a short time.
Anyone here tried this method or have an opinion?
Thanks in advance, guys.
