First time Baby Back

Hey all,
I apologize for hitting the board with a thread that surely exists.  That being said, I can not find a good thread on Baby Back preparation and cooking.  Would anyone mind sharing your experiences or directing me to a link on the subject.
All help is surely appreciated

    I like to cover them in mustard and rub and smoke with Pecan wood at about 275 for around 5 hours. I don't open the lid once I put them on. Good luck.

    i've never used liquid.  My BB rib cooks are straight and to the point.  

    Set up egg indirect
    Season ribs
    Stabilize egg at 250 grid
    Add wood chunk
    Put ribs bone side down on grid
    Check at 4 hours
    Glaze last 30 minutes

    No flipping, no spraying, no resting, pure amazingness!  You can tell when they're ready as the meat will start pulling off the bone.  There is also the bend and toothpick test.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
