    If you're in a hurry you can do baby backs indirect @ 350 in about two hours.

  • I cook my ribs indirect at 225 with a pan of apple cider vinegar underneath for 4 hours uncovered with a little apple wood chips on the fire. During the 5th hour I wrapped them in tin foil. I sprinkle Tony's on the ribs only initially and spray with apple cider vinegar throughout the cook, like every hour or so. They are the best ribs ever, I haven't had a negative review yet. You can finish with BBQ at the end but I have found that its not needed. Enjoy.

    Thanks again for all the input from you guys im tryin to figure out what went wrong this was my third time doin ribs. The first time i just did the platesetter legs up,cast iron grate on it with a drippan with apple juice. The second time same way.this last attempt i got a pswoo3 and used it and the ribs were terrible. Extremely tough i ended up just throwing them in the garbage all three cooks were between 4 to 5 hours so im tryin to figure out what went wrong

    If they were tough, they weren't done cooking.   Remember, if you're cooking at 225 dome, that might be around 200F at the meat.  Look up the bend test or the toothpick test.  There's also foil methods if you're in a hurry.  And "turbo" ribs - (cranking up the heat).  Bunch of ways to do 'em.  Don't get discouraged.

    Did baby backs for lunch a while back. (Sorry but I can't remember who I got this from.) 350 indirect 1hr 40 min. Pull membrane , rub. Put on at 350 and leave the hell alone for about that time. I opened 15 min early and sauced my half rack. This is called turbo ribs and I will never go back to 4 and 5 hour ribs. Note: with or w/o mustard works

    Ditto the only real difference is the wasted 3 hours.
