Rib smoking techniques

Newbie question: any suggestions for keeping ribs moist during smoking with plate warmer in place? My first try at steak and chicken on the open grill were awesome, beyond restaurant quality. First try at rib smoking ended up dry and overcooked; temp did not exceed 325, although I tried to keep it at 250. Thanks!


    I just tried Thirdeye's EZBB Ribs last weekend and had great success with it. My post is HERE.

    Good luck and welcome to the forum,


  • you didn't cook them long enough. i know that sounds stupid, but it's the truth.

    I've used the 3-2-1 method @ 250 dome and works like a charm every time. 325 seems too hot to me but I am no expert, probably why they dried out, too hot and too fast of a cook.

    3 hours indirect, 1-1/2 to 2 hours in foil (indirect or direct), then 1 hour direct after removing foil.
