    Do the 2-2-1 method for back ribs. 3-2-1 is for side ribs. [​IMG]

    Did you change to the 2-2-1 method like that guy said? I learned with them ribs 6 hours is just to long (it becomes mushy) hence why I'm trying the 2-2-1 method next time. The foil def is awesome when you put honey and brown sugar in it. When you unwrap the foil for the last hour it's so juicy . What kind of smoker do you have ? Any pics of ur ribs

    If you can eat it, you won.

    Try something a little different next time.

    Very shortly you'll have it dialed in.

    Did you have fun doing it?

    'Cause that's the main thing.

    If everyone liked them and you had fun,

    how can you go wrong?

    Yeah was fun,any excuse to sit around smokin cigars and drinkin beer lol.
    I had a temp drop at around the 4 hour mark,135 so i added a quarter furnace of lump and got sidetracked with something else.
