hammy ribs

I usually do my baby backs for 3.5 - 4 hours direct at
250 using nothing but JJ's rub. For my last batch, our
supper got delayed for about an hour, so I wrapped them
in foil, which I have never done before. They were more
"fall off the bone" than I prefer, but the biggest difference
we noticed was a distinct "ham" flavor. Does anyone have
a clue where the ham flavor came from?[p]Thanks,

    GaDawg,[p]I did ribs like that once. A guy here on the forum pushed the "direct then foil wrap then eat" method. I hated it, it made the ribs way to steamed and soggy. The key to foil use is going direct at the end of the cook to dry them back out a little and firm up the meat. If you didn't cook them more after the foil wrap, that may have caused your problem. Better luck on the next ones.[p][p]Tim
