    I've had a terrible time trying to get ribs right so I'm at it again this morning! Also got a 10lb butt in that I rubbed down last night. Hoping it all turns out this time.

    Okay so the ribs just came out of the foil and they passed the toothpick test and have good pullback. They are literally falling apart. Do I put them back out of foil now, or do I call them done? My problem with my past ribs is they seem to dry and tough after putting them back on after the foil step.

    Ready to wrap and wait for 205.


     
  6. I missed your earlier question about your ribs, how did they turn out?

    I ended up putting them back on the smoke for half hour. They turned out the best I've done yet but probably coulda stayed in longer. I was just worried about over cooking.

    Glad they turned out so well!

    The butt looks real good too!

    Thanks Al!

    I let it rest in the cooler for 4 hours while I napped. Then I pulled it and put the finishing sauce on it. It turned out really good! I put it in ziploc bags. What do you guys do to reheat it without drying it out?

    Ready to pull


    Anyone want a Sammie?

    If your just reheating enough for a couple of sammies.

    I just nuke it for 30 seconds or so then mix in a little BBQ sauce & nuke it again for another 30 seconds.
