Local market has Spare ribs on sale for $1.99 lb , so tomorrow I'll be making my first ribs. Gonna use the 3-2-1 method. Hope the rain holds off, but if it does ,oh well not gonna stop me! Think I'll throw a chicken or just some wings and a fatty. I'll keep ya posted !!

After the ribs are in foil is there any reasom to apply more smoke? Any other tips ?

Ribs are my next project...i've done a picnic, boston butt, brisket and fatties. So far the advice in here has been impeccable. My take on smoke after foiling is: you're wasting good wood. However, i'm far from an expert so I hope someone will edify us...........

hhersh,

Thanks. That is kinda what i figured, but it never hurts to ask. I love trying smoking something for the first time. How did you like the picnic? I've done a Boston and it was great.

............good, but they are not nearly as nice a cut as the boston butt is. Keep us informed on your rib smokin' and pix if you got 'em

hey jeff, rain or not, the ribs must go on! Teacup had a post about trimming those down for a st. louis cut but my experience has me removing the strip of meat on the back, the brisket i think its called, makes for a nice snack, cooks more evenly, good luck and keep us posted
