Rib temp

What internal temp should I shoot for on my ribs?

Comments

  • None. Ribs are done when you pick up a rack by one end and the other end bends down and almost breaks.
  • I forgot to mention that I am now at 170 after 4 hours. And I did not wrap the in foil at all.
  • Temp doesn't matter with ribs. Like I said, try the bend test. The meat should also have pulled back from the ends of the bone a little bit.

    Some people also try inserting a toothpick and if it goes in with very little resistance, it is done.

    The bend test like mentioned above is how I tell. Pick the rack up by one end and it should bend atleast a 90* You can also do the toothpick test. The toothpick should slide in and out like buttah

    I agree with Boileregger. The meat will recede from the bone. If you feel the meat between the bone it will start to firm up kinda like a well done steak. ( Not that I cook steaks to well done.)

    I don't cook my ribs meat side down. Meat up bones down only. And yes the meat will only recede from bony end. Looks like they're done to me.
