Looking for pointers on my first attempt at a baby back ribs cook on the EGG. Doing both dry & wet ribs and also a small tri tip. Looking for the right temp and time and any other recommendations for fantastic results. Thanks in advance.

    I used to do 225 indirect, but find 275 indirect gives a nicer "color" and bark if that is possible...

    I also used to do the 3-2-1 method, but didn't like the fall off the bone you get with that method.  I now just smoke/cook for 3 to 4 hours and when they are done (bend test or toothpick) you can sauce and/or serve...

    best to just get a single rack and experiment... until you find the method that works for you.

    225 to 275, indirect should get you started...

    I do indirect at 250.   Baby Backs go quicker than spares.     I do the bend test
