Soking Pork ribs for the first time

Discussion in 'Pork' started by albertahab31, Mar 17, 2012.

  1. Tomorrow I am taking on pork side ribs for the first time. My plan is as follows and I am looking for some advice from the good folks on SMF...

    Rub the ribs with home made rub and put into fridge overnight

    Smoke ribs using sand, charcoal and hickory wood chips starting at 11am the next day

    Temp at "ideal" setting as my internal thermometer does not have numbers

    Smoke time of 6.5 hours as I have 6.62 lbs of ribs

    "Rest" in foil for 30 min prior to supper time

    Remove from foil, sauce and grill for 10 min

    Enjoy at 630 pm...

    Any advice is appreciated

    Go Smoke Go!

    Depending on how you like your ribs, you can't go wrong with 3-2-1.

    3 hours smoke, 2 hours foiled, 1 hour back on the grate to firm up. I usually do 2.5-1-30 minutes. But I like a firmer rib. This is all assuming 225˚.

    Good luck!!
     
  3. Thanks for the help! When would you put the sauce on ribs?

    I put the sauce on at the last 1 hour mark on 3 2 1

    I put the sauce on the table just in case someone wants some.
     
  7. Well all smoked and eaten! Not bad for a first try thanks to my brinkman and you fellas. Next time need more rub and perhaps less resting time.
