    I have been doing the 3-1-1 method for a few years now and they always turn out great. Get your temperature set at 250-260 indirect and put in your hickory or whatever you like, wait for clear smoke about 20 minutes. Put on your ribs, I rub mine the night before. If you use a rib rack you can foil the ends that may be hanging over direct fire. Smoke the ribs for 3 hours no lower than 250 no higher that 275. After 3 hours wrap the ribs in foil, remove the rib rack and put back on the egg for 1 hour, still indirect. After an hour remove the foil and put the ribs back on the grate indirect you can now add your bbq sauce or just go dry rub (my favorite) after an hour they are ready let them rest for 20 minutes or so and eat. Good luck.

    I'm not sure if you are saying that Mikes method was 3-1-1 but I've seen that here before. Mike did his low and slow, very low in the beginning for smoke effect and then raised the temp a couple of hours in. He didn't use foil.

    Carwash Mike's method is the best I have tried by far. Takes a little longer but, wow ....

    I've done these quite a few times, and they turn out great!

    Foiling steams the ribs and changes the texture.  Helps tenderize, but if you work at it, pay attention to your temps and time the ribs are better not foiled.

    I use the 5 1 5...5 beers per 1 hour for a 5 hour rib cook. Don't know how they taste...never eaten them.

    Please understand that you must have a beer in your hand when cooking these ribs. It is tradition.

    I'm looking forward to the 4th this year. Also the 10th, since that is when the tradition started.

    No need to be sorry. I've just noticed Mike's method being associated with the 3-1-1 method and was trying to clarify.
