    With practice the membrane will come off more easily.  Still, they sometimes rip and become hard to remove.  When that happens, I score the membrane between the bones to allow smoke and seasonings thru.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I did S.O.B.s trick of running the membrane side under hot water for a little bit and it pulled off real nice!!
