First baby backs on my egg

Cooked 4 half slabs today and they turned out great. First I tried to remove the membrane. I got one half slab removed but the other three were so difficult that I gave up. I basted with mustard and added a pork rub and put in the fridge for an hour prior to putting them on. I had the egg at 325 degrees and used indirect heat with the place setter and a v rack. I cooked them for 1.5 hours then took the ribs off the rack and placed them on a cookie sheet. There I basted with "Sweet Baby Ray's" sauce and placed in an aluminum pan with an inch of apple juice. I cooked for another hour at 325 degrees. I then took them up and wrapped in aluminum foil to rest before eating. Not to brag (my first ribs) but these turned out better than any I have eaten anywhere, sooooo tender. Oh, I did use a hand full of apple chips for the smoke flavor.
We couldn't distinguish the three that did not have the membrane removed from the one that did.
