I am at the 3 hr. mark and my ribs havn't pulled back a full 1/4 of an inch.
Should I press on to the next step or continue till I reach the 1/4 inch mark. My temp is 225-250 Internal temp of ribs is 160.

From my experience, I would go to the next step. I have had that happen to me and they would be pulled back after the second stage.
