Okay so the ribs just came out of the foil and they passed the toothpick test and have good pullback. They are literally falling apart. Do I put them back out of foil now, or do I call them done? My problem with my past ribs is they seem to dry and tough after putting them back on after the foil step.

I missed your earlier question about your ribs, how did they turn out?

I ended up putting them back on the smoke for half hour. They turned out the best I've done yet but probably coulda stayed in longer. I was just worried about over cooking.

Glad they turned out so well!

The butt looks real good too!

Thanks Al!

I let it rest in the cooler for 4 hours while I napped. Then I pulled it and put the finishing sauce on it. It turned out really good! I put it in ziploc bags. What do you guys do to reheat it without drying it out?

Ready to pull


Anyone want a Sammie?

If your just reheating enough for a couple of sammies.

I just nuke it for 30 seconds or so then mix in a little BBQ sauce & nuke it again for another 30 seconds.
