Baby Backs Cooking Time? 2-2-1 or 3-2-1?

  1. I am smoking some baby backs a little later today. They are 2.88 pounds. I am wondering if I should do the 3-2-1 method or the 2-2-1 method. Thanks guys!

    Baby back are 2-2-1 . now that just a guide line. First time do them like that then see how it works for you.

    Mine is closer to 1 1/2 - 1 1/2 - 1. I smoke around 275 degrees.

    most people smoke closer to 225. You should keep a log of your smoke so you can go back next time and

    see how you did it before .

    here one from Jeff that I use.

  3. That is what I was thinking, the 2-2-1. Are baby backs typically about 3 pounds?
  4. Depends on your temps....I smoke at 220 for 3 hours.....foil with butter and apple juice in oven for 1 1/2 hours at 240 and finish on the grill.
