    I smoked 3 racks of ribs this weekend they tasted really good. The only problem I seen is when I cut them up they was on the soft side. S so dose that mean I may have cooked them to long? I did not foil them. What can I do the next time to keep them tender like they was but have a little bit harder outside..Thanks for any help and info..

    I've only used the 3-2-1 method for spares and 2-2-1 for baby backs, but post some more information such as type smoker, chamber temps during the smoke and how long you smoked them etc and I'm sure some folks here who don't foil will be along with some information.

    If they seem a little on the soft side and not falling apart you can put them on a hot grill and dry up the outside and render them down a little more before you eat them. After I've foiled and unwrapped them.... I've left them on the smoker for much longer than an hour and they were great. I've found that you have to vary your smoke to your smoker and methods. My first ribs were good and eatable but after fine tuning they are excellent. Good luck.
