    Wow, sorry to see your ribs came out too dry. You've got the right attitude, keep trying at it. The picture just before you foiled them is what they probably should look like when done. You may have cooked them too hot.

    No worries though, we all aren't always happy with our cooking and there is always next time!

    next time when you foil em pour some apple juice in the foil then wrap em,, that will keep em real moist

    Those look a lot like some short ribs I did a while back. Your ribs look very good. Here's what my short ribs looked like:

    That was my question did you put any liquid in the foil with the ribs. Sorry abiut the dried our ribs but they looked pretty good and you got one heck of a smoke ring for sure. I was excited to see how theses ribs came out too. Ok well we all have learned by eating our mistakes. So next time I know they will come out better.[​IMG][​IMG]for sure on your attempted and your next time.

    I have always had better luck on my ribs keeping them on the low side of the smokin temp... 210 - 225. They look wonderful. 25 degrees can make the difference in moist or dry using 3-2-1. Then again, it could have been a dry piece of meat. Dang.... your gonna have to try again.

    Maybe next time you can use a pan and cover it with foil. On the ribs I showed they cooked for a little over 6 hrs until they were tender, but spent the most of that time in the pan with a little liquid.

    Keep your heat as indirect as possible and let them break down slowly. If they were from the under side or short plate they are closer to brisket than true ribs that most think of. Use that information to your benefit.

    Next time they will be great.
