It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Ribs help

Hi, I recently purchased an egg and I'm struggling with being able to make great ribs.  Both times I smoked at 225 (dome), rubbed with mustard and a dry rub.  The first time I took the 2-1-1 approach and the ribs had great flavor but they seemed a little tough even though they had a perfect smoke ring and white center.  The second time I took the 2-2-1 approach.  This time I don't think the rub penetrated the meat too much and once again where tough.  I had again a good smoke ring, but many of the ribs had a grey (not white) center.  Also I can never seem to get it to pass the bounce test where I bounce the ribs to get it to crack.

Any advice on what to try next?  Any help would be appreciated.
