dry rub, no sauce methods?

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smoking pipes, Jun 19, 2014.

  1. Hey everyone, I've only smoked ribs once before following the 3-2-1 method with spare ribs, and wasn't very happy with the texture, too mushy. Tomorrow I am going to smoke baby backs with a dry rub and leave them unsauced. I would like to have a slightly crispy texture to them, and am considering not foiling them.I dont need them to be fall off the bone tender. Just want a nice texture. Any advice on methods? I am using a Masterbuilt propane smoker. Should I use a water pan?

    Rub them. Smoke at 250-275 til done. No foil. Pull them when they pass the bend test.

    Lots of ways to cook ribs so I will not even enter that controversy.

    Even in my house there are problems.

    She likes hers wet and sticky, and I like mine dry.

    So I get to split the rack.  And keep momma happy!  [​IMG]

    Good luck and good smoking.
