The only ribs that I have ever smoked have been fresh from my local butcher. I picked some up on sale at Super Target for $3.99 lb to give a try today. I've read that smoking ribs that have been frozen can lead to mushy meat. I don't know if I buy into this because I assume the majority of people use frozen ribs. Is there anything I should legitimately consider doing differently or just go about it as if they were fresh?
I'm using a Backwoods vertical water smoker, lump charcoal with hickory and peach woods.
