My good friend and fellow smoker had baby backs dialed in when he lived in California. 5 hours at 225 and wrapping in foil the last two hours. Well I tried that and they came out too tough. My wife and I are having a party at our house this Saturday, and I want to give ribs another try(also cooking butt, but I dialed that in). I am thinking it could be altitude that is affecting my ribs? I have done some research on the forum, and it seems pretty consistent, 2-2-1 for baby backs. I was also told that it might be better to cook at 250 for 3 hours. Which of these cooking times/temps should I give a go considering my location and weather outside? Also, I smoked 2 weeks ago, and have leftover, soaked wood chips. I have stored them in a ziplock over this time, will they be alright to use again this weekend? Also, will I need to re-soak them? Thanks for the help!
