Are you SURE you were at 225? Normally don't have issues unless the heat is too hot. If you are going by the thermometers that came with the smoker, they are notoriously off.

Were the ribs to close the firebox maybe?

I'll take a poke at this

1) Test your Thermos for accuracy, test in ice water and boiling water)

2) Check for hot spots on your grill (use biscuits placed all over you cooking area, and see how they cook)

3) Flip your ribs, I start bone side up sometimes and will flip several times applying a mop and a when building a glaze.

4) Try a rib rack

Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.   Sounds like a temp gauge problem to me, Pull your gauge off and check it by putting the probe in boiling water, this will tell you where it is reading.
