Egg has stayed around 300 with 3 slabs of STL spares on it. I typically cook them around 4.5 hours at 250. How much of a time difference should I expect? When should I start checking for doneness?

  • It's all good. Many people cook them at 325. I'd do a bend test at 3hrs and then every half hour afte that.

    You can do the math and hurt yourself or just realize every piece of meat behaves on its own and check as mentioned above.  This will not be the last time you have to audible the cook.  FWIW-

    Turned out great. Two of the slabs were a modified Trigg (brown sugar, honey, parkay, tiger sauce; just not as much). The other one was Aaron Franklin style.

    Thanks for all the help guys!

    @lousubcap @Que_n_Brew @Mattman3969 since I have a medium egg, I cut my ribs into halves and cook them in the rib rack. Bend test is out, but the toothpick test works fine. My only problem is that I'm not quite sure what "no resistance" actually feels like. With brisket it's obvious... butta. Same with ribs? The pork never falls off the bone (which I know is a good thing), but all the pork doesn't pull away either from the bone while we are eating them. Does that make sense? In other words, while eating a rib, there is always still meat left on the bones. Any suggestions? Is that right? Anyone else feel free to chime in.
