3-2-1 Method: Smoke during the "2"?

Discussion in 'Pork' started by yankswinagain, Jun 18, 2013.

  1. I plan on following the 3-2-1 method for some pork ribs.  I think I get the process, but here's a noob question for you all...

    How does the smoke permeate the ribs during the foiling?  Or does it not need to and all you need is the low heat to cook the meat?

    I guess the reason I am asking is - do I need to keep the smoke going during the foiling time?

    If your not smoking anything else during those 2 hours, then no need for smoke

    nope. the ribs are in the foil to cook in a nice moist environment for that 2 hrs. don't waste your smokewood.
  4. Thanks for the quick replies folks...
  5. So in an instance such as that you would burn what instead of smoke wood?
  6. Electric, gas, or charcoal, don't use smoke wood during the foil time. A stick burner of coarse would still use smoke wood.
