I'm using a Master Built electric smoker for this project.
Smoking a slab of spare ribs .
I'm in somewhat of a time crunch and I need some help quickly. I know someone is going to say use the search feature and I have. I found a lot of people saying they used the 2-2-1 or the 3-2-1 method but I did not find details of these steps like temps during each step. Can someone please explain or send me a link to the actual details around this.
I'm guessing that 2-2-1 refers to smoking the dry rubbed ribs uncovered for 2 hours then wrap them in foil using one of the juice mixtures from this forum and return to the smoker for 2 hours, then remove from foil and place back on cooker for another 1 hour with a wet sauce applied. Using smoke only on the first 2 hours.
Is this correct? What is the ideal temps during each phase?
I'm trying this wrapped idea to help with an issue that I have been experiencing. I have smoked 4 slabs on this electric smoker and each time they were tough as leather. Twice I had to throw them in the trash they were so bad.
