I understand the method for cooking ribs but what is the appropriate temp. thanks


  • bryan,
    I recommend shooting for 240*. Once in the foil, check at the 1 hr. mark and make sure they are not overcooking, if so, cool'er down. If they are ready when you take the tinfoil off, shut down to a mere trickle of air, just to keep a little fresh going thru and let chill (or sweat) for the rest of the time. If they are not quite there, you can always turn up for the last hour to 275 or even higher if needed to finish. Always on schedule. We cook Sam's bbbacks atleast 3 weekends a month with enough leftover for one more meal. Were hooked, going broke, but hooked.[p]Good Luck[p]Still Smokin'
