Hey guys, just bought my MES 40 and I've got a rack of ribs rubbed up, but the MES manual says 225 for 5 1/2 hours. I thought the standard method was 6 hours on 250 using the 3/2/1? Help!
Cobble, Don't go by the MES manual. Use the 3-2-1 method at 225, not 250. These are spare ribs,. right? If they are baby backs do 2-2-1.
Don't smoke by time - the meat is done when it's done. Back ribs typically take around 4-5 hours, look for pull back and the bend test. I have never worried about taking the temp of ribs, it's all feel.
