the bbq sauce I'm making is a sweet coca cola bbq sauce first time I'm trying this as well so well see how it is

 

• Cinnamon – 1 Tbsp.
• Dry Oregano – 1 Tbsp.
• Brown Sugar – 1 cup
• Black Pepper – 2 Tbsp.
• Chili Sauce – 1 pint
• Ketchup – 24 oz.
• Coca-Cola – 16 oz.
• Prepared Mustard – 2 Tbsp.
 

I plan on doing the 2-2-1 method at 200-225

 

Let me know what you guys think and if you have any pointers let me know!

Cam,

 

2-2-1 is probably ok. I definitely prefer more of a 3-1.5-.5 kind of smoke when I wrap. You can also try to run them straight through without wrapping. Will take about 5 or 6 hrs. @ 225/250. I used a mixture of pecan and apple today and I was very pleased with the results.

For pork ribs, both baby back and spares I prefer to run them naked and not foil. I do not spray them. every time you open the smoker you loose heat and smoke. If I'm going to add a sauce I do that during the last hour and I only add it once. Plan on 4-5 hours for baby backs. Spares take about 5-6. A good test to see if they are done is to pick the ribs up about a third of the way through the rack with tongs. If the rack bends 90 degrees or close too you are done. The meat shouldn't fall off when doing this. I will usually check at around hour 4 and then every 15 minutes after that.

Look like you're off to a great start.  I would keep the temps between 225 and 250.  Good luck, I'll be watching!
