  1. i picked up some ribs from sams club earlier today.  i don't remember exactly what the package said but something like "pork loin back ribs" or something like that.  is this the same as baby back? im going to try the 3-2-1 smoking tomorrow and i think it said for baby backs only to do 2-2-1.  should i do 2-2-1 instead?

    i also picked up a rib rack today.  do i need to change how i smoke things when i use this? for example do ribs ever need to be flipped over or is it fine to not mess with them at all?

    Not sure about the BBR/pork loin back ribs comparison; never heard that term.  your second question is easy: no changes to your rib positioning necessary.  Just rack 'em and smoke 'em!

    Yes they are the same thing, glad I wasn't the only one wondering. I got my ribs at sams club and had the same questions so I googled it from inside the store :) The ribs I have picked up at sams club have turned out better than any other ribs i have smoked, including a local butcher, frys and costco lol
