Baby Back Rib Question

I am going to smoke 3 racks of baby backs this weekend , I have done the 3 2 1 method and they were awesome this time I have to take them an hour away to my father- in- laws and I'm not sure how to make them taste as good as last time . Should I under cook them , put them in foil and into a cooler for the trip ?

    +2 I'd cook them how you like them and foil them to the cooler. Maybe leave one rack without sauce so those that want to apply sauce themselves can.

    You have your answers, cook em until done, FTC and travel and enjoy!
    A little early off the grill will not hurt as they will cook a little in the FTC mode.

    I will pile on and say "cook them zackly like you did before".  The FTC will hold them and if anything it will tenderize them even more.

  • My parents live 2 hours away.  I have always double foiled my ribs and then wrap them in towels and put them in a cooler.  They are always still hot when we get there. Slice them when we get ready to eat.

    Thanks as well!  First time cook w/ St. Louis cut ribs.  I'm trying 3-2-1 but I'm doing 3-2, then FTC for about an hour until family gets here, then I'll put em back on to sauce.  That downtime will allow me to grill some corn for a bit though!  

    Thanks for the advice!
