I’ve never foiled my ribs before but decided to try something different today. The results were excellent and I’ll probably use foil from now on. 

Cooked them at 250 for 5 hours with applewood chunks.

    I’m an anti-foiler but those look superb.

    Definately try it very much worth the effort. While foiled, I add honey, butter and Tiger sauce. Last 30 mins I sauce them.

    Beautiful cook thank you for sharing.

    Great looking a racks! In my experience when I foil I tend to get more fall off the bone texture while leaving naked still gives me a little more pull in each bite. Depends on what I’m feeling for the day but both are great.

    So do you smoke flat on grates for 3,  grill for color flat on grates higher heat then foil for doneness, sauce while in the foil?

    I'm thinking he did the 3 hours indirect, 1 hour foiled, and last hour back to indirect.  Sauced the last 30 min.  Other variations are 3-2-1 which i think makes them too mushy, and i like the 3-1.5-1.
