    Got them rubbed down and waiting for the fire to get up to temp. Figure I'll do 3-2-1 on the spares and 2-2-1 on the babies. Plan on foiling with brown sugar and honey and homemade crab apple jelly.

     
  2. That sounds great, mine have been on for 2.25 hours at 240.

    I'm just waiting for the smoker to come up to temp. Using mesquite and oak.

    Just put the spares on. Smoker was being slow and I got over zealous with the fuel. It's running close to 300 so I'll just let it cool.

    I'm still working on perfecting my ribs. I'm trying some again next weekend.

    The finished product.


    I still think they were too tender. Couldn't even pick it up without it breaking. Flavor was great but would like a little more substance.

    I did 2 racks of untrimmed spares using red oak in my stick burner a couple of weeks ago. I did the 3-2-1 method at 225 degrees and the texture was perfect. My flavoring is where I'm having my problem. I'd say your temp was too high.

    It might be a good idea to try again today at 225 degrees and see how that works out[​IMG].

    I was thinking the temp was too high as well.
