I used to take it off before smoking. No longer.

I saw a TV show a while back about a famous rib joint in the Memphis area. The owner smoked his spares with the membrane attached, then it easily peeled off when the ribs were ready. It was thin like tissue paper and came off in like two seconds. He believed it kept the ribs juicier.

Juicier or not, it is SOOOOO easy to peel off at the end of the smoke. I haven't peeled one since, pre-smoke.

I have to agree with noboundaries, been smoking ribs for at least 15 plus years on a multiple of different smokers with and without the membrane, I prefer with the membrane on, tend to be a whole heck of lot juicer.
