I have been doing my spares 3-2-1 since I got my egg. While everyone tells me how great they are I have always said I didn't care for them. They always seem too soft to the point of being mushy and just didnt have the good caramelized bark I like. I have tried different things in the foil and direct the last hour but just have not been happy.

Saturday I smoked 4 racks trimmed St. Louis Style indirect at 225 for 5 hours spritzing every hour with apple juice and apple cider vinegar. Apple juice in the drip pan. last hour direct high in the dome at 350 mopping and flipping every 10 minutes.

Finally I had the texture and flavor I wanted. They didn't last long. ROLL TIDE!!!!


  • remember your process and try it again. See if you can get the same results.

    Winning on the egg while Bama's winning on the field.

  • Must have been cooking in the fourth quarter....
  • The best ribs are the ones you do the way you like. You might have had better luck doing them 3-1-1, which is the way I have always seen it written. That extra hour in the foil is probibly what made you ribs mushy all those other times

    Glad to hear it, will have to keep that in mind. I have yet to try ribs on the egg. I thought maybe you had found a diet that works, I've been looking for my ribs for years. :whistle: :lol:
