2-2-1 method question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm going to do spare ribs for the 1st time and was going to do the 22-1 method. I am going to wrap them in fold and towels and put them I a cooler for a couple hours before I serve them. Should I not do the 2 2 1 method?

For spares the general guideline is 3-2-1 (2-2-1 for baby backs). These guidelines are for a smoking temp around 225. I have done the 3-2-1 a bunch of times and foiled, toweled, and coolered them afterwards to keep them warm. Word of warning... Might want to pull them a little earlier than your desired degree of tenderness because they might continue to cook a little bit when wrapped and in the cooler .

The 2-2-1 for BB or 3-2-1 for spares is just a guideline... Some will take longer & some will be done quicker !

If you enjoy FOTB(fall off the bone) type of ribs then follow the amount of foil time.

Now this is just my preference, I do everything to avoid FOTB!! Nothing angers me more when I unfoil the ribs to put them back on the grates and as I grab them....they break because the amount of time in the foil or have the bones to cleanly be pulled out. Ughhhhhhh....... I usually do foil...but its for 45 mins max!!

I love tug off the bone ribs and the meat to stay on the bones. Again just my preference.

Even though we all have different cooking methods...we all have the common goal...enjoying great BBQ!!

Still, both methods are just a guideline !
