    Great looking cook! If I may ask you a question, did you find that a full 2 hrs foil make them FOTB? Did the bones slide out easily or was there still tug off the bone when eating them? Thanks

    Thanks for the question Rob.  Like you i like some "tug" to my ribs.  And you are right about needing to be careful not to over braze them in the foil. However, putting them back on for the final hour, IMHO is what is most important for texture.  Sometimes I leave the rack on for longer than an hour.  This dry's them out a bit for a better chew.

    I did a 3-1-1 this weekend and they turned out great.  I might only do 45 minutes in foil next time.  Personally I think 2 hours is overkill, but if it works for you, go for it!

    I Tried "Simply Unique" rub for the first time. Made by a BBQ team in Allen Texas.  I'll use it again!   No sauce.. Hardly ever use the stuff myself. b
