So I'm back in the saddle after VERY mixed results -  first time I did ribs they were fantactic (high spot) -  did 9 racks at Thanksgiving and they were not good.  Today I'm trying 2 racks and they are smoking at 260 degrees rack temperature.  So my question -  who wraps in foil after 3 hours and who just lets them go until done?  I was goping to try wrapping this time but not sure if it is really necessary


  • Baby backs,St.Louis or what? You will get a variety of answers. I do 5-0-1. 5 hrs at 250 dome temp and 1 hour with the sauce, No foil. And I do prefer the St.Louis over the baby backs

    I put two racks of bb's on at 12 cst. This time I'm gonna foil after 3. Plan on foiling for 1.5 to 2 hours. Check where they are at and finish uncovered. I may just finish indirect uncovered for an hour or so, or finish them direct. Haven't decided yet.
    Geaux Tigers!!!
  • I'm doing baby backs -  the sauce doesn't burn after being on an hour?
  • I do it all indirect with the platesetter with a pan of water/apple juice.
