I'd sure like to eliminate the foil part if i knew i could achieve the desired tenderness without it.
So many ways to do anything on a Smoker . Everyone has a 'great' way .
Farmer was right about the Naked Ribs . So here is MY temp. , time and Q-view f my results
On average , my Ribs take 5hrs. to finish at a temp. o 225*F . I keep my Smoker closed the entire time and maintain good light blue smoke . White
smoke will darken the Bark and IMHO gives a burnt flavor ( or more Bark than I like) .
Once you set up your environment in the Smoker , leave it be and let the magic happen , they will still be there when you look at the finished Ribs .(unless
you live in a very ruff neighborhood .
Have fun and . . .
