My first cook is going to be baby backs tommorrow. I was going to do a dry rib,just rubbing them down with my rub and do a 3 hour indirect then 1 hour direct method at about 250-275 flipping them every 1 hour and spraying them with a wet mop. I will be using 100% lump charcoal with a few chunks of cherry and hickory wood. Is this a good method for baby backs. Any suggestion are welcome, Thanks.

    smokeapig,[p]Your method is really close to way I do baybacks. I like cooking indirect and finishing direct. I think you will be very happy with the results... just keep a close eye during that last hour or so.[p]Hey, congratulations on finally getting your egg... now get cooking! [p]WD

    smokeapig,[p]Sounds awfully good to me. In fact, makes me want to go get some ribs for tonight.[p]

    This is a classic. Give it a try.

    smokeapig,[p]Sounds good, you may find the mop is not needed since the indirect method does not dry out ribs like some of the non-ceramic bbq rigs that do require mops. If you enjoy doing it - OK. Opening the dome more than needed does extend your cooking time a little. Alton Brown said it added 5 min each time you opened up, I can believe that.[p]Tim
