Did some ribs, turned out well....

  1. His was my second attempt at ribs, they were a little fatter than I would have liked but flavor rocked.

    Maple syrup caramelized and paired with the rub, was great!

    Used the rest of my AMNPS through the mailbox and then hickory chips in MES.

  4. Thanks guys, they ended up a lot more tender than the last ribs I did, and on those I did the 2-2-1 method.

    With these I did nothing besides put some maple syrup on them about 30min before pulling them out. I didn't wrap in foil, flip, or even open the smoker....

    Seems like the less I am involved in the smoke, the better it turns out. Lol.

    Yep!  I let my ribs go for 5 hrs before I even lift the lid.  I just make sure to keep the smoker between 225 and 250, perfect results each time.

    My smoker likes to run at 260-275* so my baby backs are usually cooked to a good bending point in about 3 hours naked. Then I sauce/glaze them for about 30 minutes. I smoked ribs unwrapped for many years until it became popular about 4-5 years ago to wrap. I was getting mushy overcooked ribs. They were not fall off the bone, when I took them out, they had already fallen off the bone. About a year or more ago, I stopped wrapping and my ribs returned to what I used to have. I have been getting great results by smoking them naked. So that's my $0.02.
