Second attempt at Baby backs

    I’m trying baby back ribs again. I put them in the rub yesterday and they’ve been in the smoker for about an hour and a half. I’m closely watching my temp. It’s around 225 – 250 and I’m going to apply my second mopping. I did some modifications on my grill. I added a piece of metal over the opening into the smoke chamber to eliminate flare ups into the chamber and I added a piece on flashing to my stack to bring the opening to the grill rack. Except for the rain so far so good…
  2. Good deal! Generally, when the meat starts drawing back from the bone about 1/4", they are ready to foil, if that’s your technique! Good luck!

    Thats the method I plan to try (3-2-1). One rack was pulling from the bone so I foiled it. The other 2 racks were farther away from the heat so they're not ready yet.

    All three racks turned out perfect thanks to reading the forums. Not sure what I'll smoke next but it will be soon.
