would be curious to know how they turn out. I did a rack about this size a couple weeks ago and they did not turn out very good. I cooked them for 4 hours. although, when I bought them from Sams they came in a 3 pack so I had two left. yesterday I put another rack (of the three) on at 10:30 am and cooked until 5:30 pm (I did wrap in foil at 4 so they were wrapped for an 1 1/2 hours) I sauced them the last 30 minutes. they turned out MUCH better. I was surprized they turned out as good as they did given how long I cooked them. my grate was 240.
I will update when they are done. For the first 3 1/2 hours they were cooked with a dome temp of around 225. (I didn't set my Maverick for this cook, but I'm guessing for as long the LBGE has been going today, its probably pretty close).
The first part of the cook went well, I had a lot of good smoke from my cherry wood chunks and everything smelled terrific. Additionally, the ribs seem to be very tender already. I'm not sure I exactly need them fall off the bone tender, but there is nothing worse than tough ribs. Well, maybe there are things that are worse, but I would hate to waste this lazy Sunday afternoon on a bad cook.
I've now began raising the temp. Probably raise it to 300 for about an hour. Once they are close to being done, I'll crank it up to 350, add my sauce, and cook for another 30 minutes.
Done and done. Pulled the ribs after about 6 hours on the LBGE. (Sauced 30 minutes before pulling). Turned out pretty good. Certainly not my best, but good nontheless. They weren't fall off the bone, but that is the way I like it. My dinner guests also enjoyed them.
