    Are you looking for fall off the bone ribs or bite into ribs? I just rub and put on a raised grate around 250-270. I use to use foil but now I just cook 4 hours with no crutch. Easier and delicious

  • I sometimes rub down with yellow mustard and then sprinkle with a homemade rib rub, or just the rub alone.
    Remember to remove the membrane from the back of the ribs.
    4-5 hours at 250 should do the trick.
    I like a little hickory with some oak for smoke on mine.

    In addition to what the others have said I like to sauce mine a couple of times during the last 20-30 minutes of cooking
