Baby back rib questions.

  1. I have been told about the 3-2-1 method about cooking spares or St Louis, but if I were to do baby backs, would I reduce it to a 2-2-1? I'm going to be making 2 or 3 racks this weekend, and I want to try wrapping one of them

    That is the normal guideline for baby backs.  I say smoke until you get the color you want on the ribs, then wrap for 1.5 - 2 hours then pull of for another 30 minutes to an hour.  If your smoke temp is a little higher, they may cook faster.
     
  3. I'm trying to keep the temp between 225 and 250. That seems to be the magic number
     
  4. just be careful I recently did my first rib rack and set the smoker at 250. I tried to do the 2-2-1 but by the end of the second 2 the ribs were over done.
     
  5. Hmm. Maybe back it down and try to maintain it at 225-235 then
