    Remember, 3-2-1 is for SPARE ribs, for Baby Backs it's 2-2-1.

    Good luck,

    Remember 3 2 1   or 2 2 1 for that matter are just guidelines.  On the smoker till the meat starts to dry out and has picked up a bunch of smokey goodness then 2 hours in foil or until the ribs have been braised, you have good pull back and the meat is tender. the final hour on the smoker to caramelize the BBQ sauce an tighten up the ribs.
