Eating in 6 hrs - turbo or low & slow Spares?

I've never done turbo ribs before.  I'd like to do them for my 22 YO Daughter's Bday party tonight but hesitate to try a new method for the first time with guests coming over.

Words of advice??

    I go 5 hours at 275. Sauce last 30 minutes.

    This works. Turbo Baby Back Ribs (Sorry but I can't remember who I got this from.) 350 indirect for 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 .. I like Bad Byron's Butt Rub

    If they are spares they usually end up at over 5 hours for me @250*. Never done turbo but I know a lot of experienced folks that swear by them. You could really pick any temp between 275 and 350.

    Mick, I believe it was AL (Hungry Man) that coined the name
