    Started the fire around 11am and let it go while I got the ribs ready. Started with a mustard slather and then added the rub. Fire was ready to go at about noon so the ribs went on. I let them cook for about 2 hours and then I mopped them for the first time and they looked great. Mopped them every hour on the hour and let them cook for a total of 6 hours. I read a lot of threads and even posted a question about foiling the ribs and after careful consideration, I decided not to foil. I was a little nervous but after taking them off the pit at 6pm, I knew I made the right decision. I cut into them and they were perfect. Thanks goes out to Richtee for sending me his rub and mob recipe. The entire family thought it was great so this will definitely be my rub of choice when it comes to ribs.

    The only real issue I had this time (and every other time I've cooked ribs) is I just can't get the bone to show. I read a lot about how you are supposed to foil after you see the meat pulling down for the 321 method but I just never see the bone. Not sure if it's something I'm doing or what but regardless, they still taste great and that's all that matters.

    I have had little to no pull back and alot of pull back. It depends on the Ribs. Sometimes you will have a meaty one and others wont be as much. I agree with DP If it taste good and was tender then who cares if it pulled back any. Nice Job
