BABY BACK RIBS
« on: July 21, 2012, 08:50:36 pm »
HELLO ALL......FIRST TIME USING MY BRADLEY 4 RACK SMOKER...

DRY RUB OVER NIGHT
HEATED SMOKER TO 200 DEGREE ( 5HRS)
SET SMOKE FOR 2 HRS. (HICKORY)
AT 4HRS SPRAYED APPLE JUICE AND OLIVE OIL THEN WRAPPED IN FOIL FOR THE LAST HOUR
AT HOUR 5 TOOK RIBS OUT AND PLACED THEM IN MY BBQ FOR A 1/2 HR AND APPLIED BBQ SAUCE.

END RESULT......THEY TASTED GREAT HOWEVER, SEEMED A LITTLE DRY. I WAS HOPING THEY WOULD FALL OFF THE BONE A LITTLE BETTER.......

BRING ON THE TRICKS OF THE TRADE......THANKS

Generally folks will smoke ribs for about 3 hours, then wrap them in foil (with maybe a little butter & brown sugar or some apple juice) for 2 more, and then finish without foil for about an hour (with or without sauce during the last stage).  One of the members (10.5) has an excellent tutorial on this "3-2-1" method here.  With BBRs, many change the technique to 3-1-1.

I go 3-1-1 and they are never dry. Moist as can be!

3-2-1 is a good method. You can also go 3-2-.5   It's a guide. The longer you leave them naked at the end, the more they will stiffen back up.

As many said....3-2-1. I only do the last stage for 1/2 hour to keep the ribs more soft rather than firming up. I end up doing 3-2.5-0.5, same 6 hr total.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

Hey fellas, planning on using the 3-2-1 method for some baby backs. The only problem is that I have an hour drive after they are finished What do you guys recommend for the drive. FTC? Or will FTC mess with the sauce/texture of the ribs? Also, should I pull them prior, or when we get to the house? Thanks, merry Christmas!

Lots of variables in your question.  First thing is 3-2-1 on baby back ribs may be excessive unless you want fall off the bone meat.  You run the risk of having very mushy meat texture.  I would try more like 2-2-1 at 225 degrees.  As for an FTC for an hour, that is what I would do.  Lastly, I don't understand your question about "pulling" them prior or when you get to the house? If you are referring to separating the individual ribs I would wait until you get to your destination.

Sounds good Kynola. I'll follow your suggestion at 2-2-1. The "1" includes saucing them uncovered, right?  Then I can FTC for an hour. Yeah, I guess "pulling" was the wrong word. Meant separate. Thanks again
