    Hello all I have a quick question, I have some Pork Riblets on the smoker as we speak. The smoker is holding a pretty steady temp of 250 degrees, how long should these riblets cook? Should I use the 3-2-1 meathod or is that too long? What should the internal temp be when finished? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hard to say?

    The term "riblet" is much abused and not very descriptive because the purveyors and restaurants throw those around a lot.

    Give us a pic?  You will certainly know what you want to do the next time.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    yeah I kinda figured that but I cant take a pic right now cause they are in the smoker. To me it just seemed like a slab of pork ribs cut. Each peice had a rib about 4 inches long with a nice meaty section. Id say i have appx 2 slabs in the smoker right now.

    What did it say on the label on the packaging?

    Tough to put a thermo in ribs   Take a look at them in a couple of hours and see if the meat is pulling back from the bone a bit.  I generally give the bone a twist and if it comes right out they are done but it the riblets are the trimmings then there is no bone just cartilage

    Package says pork riblets bbq style. I have about 4 lbs of them in. Have been in a 250 degree smoker for going on 2 hours now

    Well here they are at 3 hours. Just put them in foil and am thinking of another hour or two in. Any suggestions?

    Looks like most of us went to bed before we could give you our opinions.  Looks like you did a great job,   Did they come out the way you wanted them?

    Ehh they came out pretty well done. 3-2-1 meathod was a bit long next time a lot shorter for sure.
