Looking for recommendation on the best method for wet baby back ribs. I've done dry ribs with 225 dome temp for 5 hours indirect. Looking to try wet ribs tomorrow. Thanks in advance!

    Not to over-simplify things...but you could do it the same way and then just slap on some sauce for 20-30 minutes at the end of the cook ;)

    If you are looking for more moisture you could try something like this method:

    It turns out great results, but just be careful not to overdo the foil stage.  IMO, 90 minutes at 275 is pushing it...I do more like 60-75 min at 275ish.  I thought it looked a little on the sweet side for my taste, so I don't use as much honey and brown sugar and I finish with a sauce that is not too sweet like Stubbs. 

    Note that some refer to the foil stage as the "Texas crutch".  I've done St Louis style with no foil and they turned out my next BB cook I am going to try sans foil:
    Rub em, smoke em til their done, slap on sauce. 

    Good luck!

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    +1 with SmokeyPitt's suggestion about sauce during the home stretch...
