    If your trying to track the IT in your ribs, that can be a PITA ! Ya can do the toothpick test or the bend test... Little easier than doing IT on ribs. Just my 2 cents for what it's worth !

    They aren't done yet.....don't worry about IT of ribs.....Pick them up with tongs in the middle of the rack.....if they fold darn near in half and start to fall away from the bone then they are done......another thing to look for is how far they pull back from the bones....1/2 inch will tell ya that you're pretty close too...

    They were pretty good! Very tender. Didn't fall of the bone but came close. Needed to be a bit smoker. I used a Pecan/Apple wood mix but kept it to tame. I had a bad experience a few weeks ago (creosote) and now I've been "woodshy" lately. Oh well they were still yummy.

    I've tried fruit woods with ribs ...and keep going back to all-hickory, since the fruit woods seem too mild on anything but chicken (to me anyway).  You'll get more flavor with less wood too ...if you're still wood-shy. :)  

    Thanks for sharing!  They look great!  And I'm sure they tasted even better!

  18.  Those look pretty good to me. I like some texture to mine, tender, but not fall-off-the-bone.
