    Hey guys, first time smoking ribs, I usually grill them on a cedar plank seasoned with Lawrys Seasoned Salt. Anyway, I seasoned the ribs with Weber's Kansas City Rub, applied over a layer of yellow mustard, and I used lump coal with Cherry chunks for smoke. I think I did a good job maintaining thin blue smoke throughout the cook. Ribs were cooked for 5 hours at 235*F, they were slightly frozen still when I put them on. I'm thinking if I left them on a little longer their would have been more bark? Or is there something else effecting that? First time using DigiQ DX as well.

    What are your thoughts, opinions and suggestions fellas? If I let them cook longer would I have gotten more shrinkage?

    Looks good, more time would have given you more shrinkage or pull on them. They look good otherwise. [​IMG]

    Cool thanks, I also hit it with apple juice every hour after the first hour.

    You get a lot of pullback if you foil them.

    They look very good to me.

    I wouldn't change a thing.

    Thanks fella's.

    realtorterry It's a probe for my pit temp not the ribs. I was using my new BBQ Guru DigiQ Dx. It really made it a set it and forget it type of thing. I had to add coals about every hour. It held 235 good for a while but dropped down to 215 right before my coals were ready once and went up to 250 when I added too many coals on the last one, but those were the extremes.

    I was going to try the 2-2-1 method, probably next time.

    I think you'll like the 2-2-1 method.
