  1. hey there everyone. smoking 2 racks of spares today using the 321 method. just need to confirm when i wrap them for the 2 hours do i add sauce them at that time or do i do it for the last one hour. this is only the 2nd time using this method and it seems like i remember putting sauce on at some point last time. i will be posting qview here in a just a bit.

    like he says.... watch that sauce though, want it carmelized a bit but not baked on. i like to put at least a couple layers, let first start to carm and brush on next. play around and get it to where you like it best. everyone has different tastes, gd luck!!!

    A word of caution: It seems the "2" portion of the 321 method MAY be a bit long. I suggest you peek at them at perhaps 1.5 and check for tenderness. If the bones move, gently unfoil and brown/firm 'em back up for the PERHAPS hour. With close trimmed spares, last time I went 3-1.5-.5.

    Sauce in the last hour, or just place sauce on side. I prefer no sauce, family prefers the mop.
     
  9. hey thanks ritchie. ya i did notice that last time when i took them out of the foil they already seemed done. i will try the 1.5 then .5. here is a couple pics of my tbs. temp is holdin great at just shy of 225*. and thanks guys about the sauce for the last hour. i knew it was one of the two. i have two racks so i'm thinking of moppin one and not the other just to see which i like best. i will keep ya posted
