Hi all. I am about to try smoking spare ribs for the first time this weekend. I have a couple of basic questions. I will be using the snake method for sure. That method worked brilliantly for my first pork shoulder. I am also going to try the 3-2-1 method. So my first question is where would I be putting the thermometer in the ribs? Also for the smoke what flavor would you recommend? I tend to like a sweeter taste overall but not overly sweet. I will most likely be using the McCormicks Smokehouse Maple Rub and MAY finish it with some Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. Let me know your thoughts.
