Hello all. I recently was handed down an ECB from my wife's grandfather, so I have been experimenting when time allows and learning a lot from all of your posts on this site. Absolutely love the qviews and all of the techniques you all share. This past Saturday I tried to to do 2 racks of spare ribs on the top rack and a fatty filled with some pasta, pepperoni, diced peppers and cheese on the lower rack. This was my first rib attempt. My plan was to 3-2-1 the ribs with the smoker around 230-240 degrees using Wicked Good Lump with some hickory. It was colder out than expected but I was able to run around 215 - 225 the whole time. At the end of 3 hours the ribs had a beautiful color and pulped around 140. I put them in foil with apple juice and back on for 2.25 hours (had to watch end of UNI - KU game). I forgot to pulp them when I took off the foil. One hour later I checked them again and they pulped at 177. So I thought I was good to go and pulled them off the smoker. Once inside I found they were pretty tough texture wise. I was expecting to be able to cut them up in 3 rib sections pretty easily. This was not the case. Any idea where I went wrong? Did I go too long after foiling? Thanks for any ideas or help you can pass along. JP P.S. the fatty was great!!
