Baby back Ribs

I am trial to dial in my technique for ribs. Some good and some just ok. What temperature (dome or grid) do y'all cook ribs at? Do you foil? If so, at what temp on the meat and for how long. I have been cooking for an hour or so then normally wrapping for an hour, but I would just like of a more precise time for how long to do everything.


  • I cook my baby backs for 2.5 to 3 hours at 225-250. I then take them off and wrap them in foil typically with some brown sugar and apple juice in the foil. Put them back on the Egg for 2 hours at that 225-250 range.

    I've done several methods, but most recently cooked at 230*-240* indirect for two hours, then wrapped in foil at same temp adding some apple juice for one hour, then unwrap and back on for another two hours, adding sauce for the last hour or so.  Five hours total.....turned out great.
