ribs 3 hours in the smoker at 225 and no bone showing

Discussion in 'Pork' started by azbohunter, Mar 23, 2016.

  1. I have had a rack of spare ribs in for 3 hours  at 225 and no bone showing and internal temp is 155. Normally I would foil now for 2 hours but not sure what to do. Should I wait or foil even though the bone has not started showing yet.

    Was planning the 3-2-1 method but might be 4-1-1 the way it's going.

    Thoughts?

    Yeah if you were planning on foiling anyway, you can go ahead and do it anytime you're ready.  I've had that happen lots of times:  no bones showing when I foiled, but when they came out of the foil later, very nice pull back on the bones.  Nothing to worry too much about...

  3. Thanks Red, had to make a decision "wrap 'em" or leave go for full time with no foil. I went ahead and wrapped 'em, added a little maple syrup and butter. We'll see what happens. Have never tried the maple syrup but have done brown sugar and butter when wrapping. Time will tell.

    I usually wait until 165° to foil, but I agree with Red----You'll get your pull-back.

    Be Back!

  7. All is well that ends well. Ribs were great, little 'tater salad and fresh kale out of the garden. Ribs were just like I like them, had to bite 'em off the bone but they came off clean and were not mushy.
