I joined this group a few years ago. It has been a plethora of information when I started making sausages 2 years ago. I have now taken the plunge and bought an offset smoker. In researching the art of BBQing ribs, (I thought I was starting with something easy), is there a checklist someplace that people use to complete the finished product? I know that everyone develops their own style, but as a newbie, I was wondering if there is a list that I can work from. After watching around 150 videos on just smoking ribs, there is the decision to spritz or not to spritz. If you do, what do you use? Another is to wrap or not to wrap. If so, when do you do it and for how long? Is there a list that shows what a judge is looking for in the final product? Points to hit such as; is the rack flexible? or have some bounce to it while grabbing it with the tongs? Did the meat shrink or pull up the bone? I understand that this knowledge and talent all comes with experience and mistakes will be made. I'm just looking at getting started in the right direction.
