Another baby back rib question

This may sound strange but I'm cooking some baby backs for my Dad and now that he is older his teeth aren't as strong. hHe wants me to cook him a rack and make them really fall off the bone as in when I'm done cooking, he wants me pull the bones out and serve like a full rack together but no bones. I was thinking foiling longer any thoughts?. I don't foil when I do ribs usually but I'll give i shot.

    If you give them 1-1/2 hours in the foil, after a few hours at 250, you will have some non-tooth breakin rib meat. If they seem too loose then put them back on for half an hour or so (no foil) to firm up a bit.

    I say go for foil. Pour a little cider vinegar and/or apple juice in a foil pouch with the ribs.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Thanks. I will give the foil a shot for 1.5 and maybe try some blues hog tennessee red in the foil pack.
