On...Mostly because Im too lazy to mess with it but, it does not seem to make a difference, on or off, in the quality of the finished ribs...JJ

I usually leave on. Can put it on a hot grill afterwards and only takes a minute to burn it off. I just do St Louis ribs now a days. When my freezer empty of these may switch to spares, cut to St Louis and save cut off part to make taco's like someone posted recently.

I keep it on, then take it off when the ribs are done. It just pulls off real easy then. You will be surprised on how much juice is under the membrane. Here is what I’m talking about.

Things like this are all debatable. In the end, the difference will be small and other things make a much larger impact on your overall results. IE my ribs MUST be grilled after smoked. BIG flavor impact.
