3-2-1 Baby Backs

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

So I am trying my first batch of Baby Backs tomorrow.  Will 3-2-1 work with Baby Backs?  I see Jeff links that to St Loius style (which I've done and they've come out great)  

 

I was thinking that should work for BB too.

 

Thoughts?

 

Also, taking my new beast for its inaugural run.  I'll post pics once I get it up and running.  Ribs should be ready around Vikes Kick Off at 3:30!!!

When I do BBs, I go 2-2-1. St. Louis I'll do the 3-2-1.

3-2-1 is for spares. 2-2-1 is for baby backs.

 

Good luck!

I let my ribs rest for 15-20 minutes usually. I smoke at the 225-250 range.

When you let your ribs rest, do we re-wrap in foil or what, otherwise how to they stay hot/warm?

Christening the "Hungry Wolf" with 9 racks of Baby Backs.  Two different rubs.  (Just for a taste test)

The 2-2-1 method for baby backs is good for 225* cooking. I cook baby backs at 260-275* for about 3 hours nekkid, and then about 30 minutes for sauce/glaze. I think that the hotter, shorter, nekkid method gives me the finished product that I'm looking for and a slight tug, also.

Good luck with your ribs, Joe

I like to let them rest for 15 or 20 minutes with foil over the plate, but usually we just dig in if all the sides are ready 😊. Resting is great for a hunk of meat to let the juices and fat spread out, but with ribs IMO, when they're done, they're done...

Yup. I re-wrap them in foil and put them in the oven(I don't turn the oven on)
