lookin for help with baby backs

Lookin to impress some friends Saturday night...having them over for dinner.

Never did baby backs before, each rack is under 4lbs, lookin to do them in direct, what should I set my Digi at for the racks and for the pit?

Being a Dizzy Pig dealer I have all the rubs on hand, any suggestions as to which rub would be a killer rub for the these types of ribs?

Thank you in advance.


  • Try a search for 3-2-1 ribs or 3-1-1 ribs they usually say about 275 for 3 hours (indirect), 2 hours wrapped in foil and 1 hour direct.

    Baby backs are fairly tender cut compared to spare ribs. I prefer not to foil. Put the ribs indirect and forget about it. Check for done and finish with sauce.

    I set the guru to 235pit, lite 4 lumps, open the blower no more than 1/2, open top the width of a tooth pick with daisy closed. Let the guru bring the egg up to temp and stabilize. In around 40minutes put the ribs on and go do your thing.
