3/1/1.5 method and spare ribs?

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
Will this 3/1/1.5 work with fatty spares ribs or just baby backs?

    <p />Devin S., check out the link - the ribs were good but I think that I also overcooked a bit - I let the temperature climb to 300 degrees durin the early part of the cook and I failed to shorten the cooking time - this was one of my early 3/1/1.5 experiments.[p]BTW - I experiment about evey week but mostly with baby backs - Life is GOOD!

  • Devin,
    I have used the 3/1.5/1.5 method and also the straight 6 hour method, both using a drip pan and 225 degrees. Using either method I found them to be the same in texture and quality. I will not fool with the aluminum wrap stage any more, just slow down the temperature a little and eat the best ribs to be cooked. Yes! When using the straight method I only needed 5 1/2 hours.[p]N.W.
