I figured I'd post since I am just waiting around. So as the title suggests. I am mixing up the timing a little on my spare ribs. I run a master built propane smoker (a first for me since I have always used larger stick burners) and have had constant headaches with the burner so after making my own burner and sealing the cabinet good it runs much better. The last time I tried the 3-2-1 the ribs were falling off the bone. Tasty yes but I like ribs to have a little pull to them. So will cutting the foil time down and using no butter/ wet ingredients in the foil do the trick? Guess I will find out since the will be ready by six.
Side note: I am trying to find a rub recipe that gives a good balance between sweet and spicy. Best way I can describe it is the first taste you get should be sweet and then the heat should creep up on you just enough to make you want another bite of sweet. If anyone has a recipe that fits the bill I am all ears!
Obligatory q-view: (sorry about the hack job on trimming the sides as I was in a hurry)
