    I have an MES30 and an A-Maze Smoker. I am doing BBRs. They have been in the smoker for 2 1/2 hours. I see no pull back. I have a Redi-Chek thermometer set but the instructions are way over my head. All I want is an accurate temperature read out. Should I keep my ribs at 235F until I see pull back or does that happen in the course of foiling etc.?

    All the Best

    Smoked long enough, now foil for anther 2 hours ans then finish for 1 hour out of the foil

    2-2-1 Method

    What Todd said.  On most ribs there is too little meat to get a good temp reading anyway.  Most cook them to the bend test.  Pick them up at one end with tongs, and they should bend readily.  A 2-2-1 should put you in good shape on those unless they are extra meaty ones.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Most of the pullback will happen in the foil. How did they turn out?
