I just pulled my first rack of bb's off of my traeger, so traeger owners please respond with tips. I used a rub with cumin, paprika, allspice, traeger beef shake. I may have used a little much. I smoked them on smoke for 3 hr. (225 degrees), but they hadn't pulled back from the bone a full 1/4 of an inch. put them in a foil wrap, hit them with apple juice, and set them to medium (300-350 degrees) for 2hr. Removed them from the foil and hit them with sauce (store bought), cooked them uncovered on the same medium setting for 45 min. They were tasty, but possibly a little much on the rub. I'm not sure I liked the cumin on ribs. The rub recipe called for brown sugar and salt, but another person recommended holding off on those ingredients. I plan to do another rack of ribs tomorrow. Any suggestions, anyone? I immediately ordered Jeff's rub and sauce recipes.
