So my mom bought this rack of ribs on sale, and I decided to smoke it since my first ribs attemp was a failure.
This rack weighed about 3.3lbs there was not so much fat on the surface, it was actually pretty lean and I was a bit afraid it might come out dry.
I seasoned it well and got the smoker ready at 275F.
Since last time my foiled ribs were dry, I decided to not them this time.
Ribs seasoned well
Tried to maintain the smoker at 275 all the time.
I checked ribs after 3hours or so for the bark. Then started spraying it with apple cider once every 15min. I tried my best to keep the ribs wet, but the surface looked dry (that was where lean meat was)
After about 5hrs and a half,IT was 190 so I decided to sauce it twice ( once every 10min ) and let it stay in the CC unfoiled the whole time.
Surface looked good. Ribs rested 15-20min and sliced them up
JESUS...they were dryyyy...as you all see...dryyyyyy
My worst nightmare after 6hrs baby sitting the fire.
The ribs were thick in my opinion. But from the picture I think fat didnt render enough, so DID I UNDERCOOK the ribs? Could I still undercook a 1.5lb rack of ribs after 6hrs at around 250- 275?
I thought it took wayyy too long...and Im just very disappointed now...
Guys...please tell me what should I do next time...
