    The longer you wrap them the more tender they will be. I do 3-1-1 for baby backs and wouldn't wrap them any longer cause I don't like for all the meat to fall off on the first bite. My parents like them more tender so they do a 3-1.15-.45.

    Ribs should not fall off the bone. When you bite a rib it should be tender but still hold to the bone. You should leave your bite mark  after to a bite. That is a good rib not fall off the bone.

    I like Dr BBQ's method. Short, sweet, and tender.

    Quinn, Amen.  Ribs should be the way you like them.  It's one thing perhaps to try to make KCBS judges happy, it is quite another to be trying to make yourself and your guests happy.

    For one they are easier to eat and they are not just slop on a stick.

    with tongs, grab them about half way down the rack and pick 'em up.  they fell like they are going to break off, their done.  If you can do a smack down with 'em and they would not break, not quite ready.......lol

    I like  my ribs with some crust on the outside.  Doesn't the foil basically steam them and make the exterior soft and mushy?

     I usually go about 5hrs at 250, no foil, and no misting with apple juice.  Maybe some juice in the drip pan to start.

    Yes it is my opinion you must like slop on a stick. Anyone can make that.

    What kind of slop are we talking about? 
    I'm partial to pork slop, but feel "meh" about beef slop. 

    Also, for me slop isn't right until it's in a cheap roll.

    Eller

    when you do the foil stage, its meat side down so the meat braises in the liquid and you want to warm the liquid up before adding to the foil, it helps for consistency from cook to cook. approaching the one hour mark make sure theres still liquid in the foil and check to see if they are starting to fall apart, then check every 15 to 20 minutes adding liquid as needed. you want them just starting to fall off , go too far and they will not hold together for the third part of the cook which is really to firm them back up again. they will also fall apart if you just cook them longer but the foil cook guarantees it will fall apart without drying the end ribs out abit

    Not sure how my opinion is being an ****. All i said is fall off the bone ribs are like slop on a stick. You seemed to be the ****. For jumping on me for an opinion.

    trust me, no matter what you like (or don't), there's someone who doesn't like it (or does).  pretty much means there will always be someone who thinks you are an "a-hole".

    in my case, they think it for many reasons

    I could care less how anyone likes their ribs...I actually don't like mine falling off the bone, but people do, and the OP was asking about it. When you belittle the question with a condescending remark like its "slop, and anyone can make it" it makes you seem like an ****. I wasn't the first to note that...see mikep624's quote
