Decision time in next 20 min.-BB Ribs Foil/No Foil???
 
In about 20 minutes I will have had my BB ribs on the smoker for 2 hours. I have had temp issues and they have been cooking for the most part around 265 for the 2 hours.

My question is, should I foil and follow the 2-1-1 method, or no foil and just let them go for the next 2 hours?

Also, should I be drinking beer while I'm smoking, or is that dangerous? :rockon:

foil

Are you in a hurry? If so, then foil. If not, let 'em go!

If you have never done it before, it can't hurt to try it. Then, you will know, first hand, whether to do it or not in the future.

drinking beer is a good thing.

As for foiling or not. I find foiling yields a more tender/less barky rib. So really I'd suggest deciding on what you like more: bark (no-foil), tenderness (foil).

For me, it depends on my mood but I do tend to foil more often than not.

I foil, but Ron knows his proverbial shiznit so to speak. Good luck, gotta post PR0N later.

no foil....i never foil and I never regret it....BUT....to each their own! Let us know how it goes :)

I'm not foiling the SM Spares ~ we'll be having them tomorrow so reheating in the foil will assure tenderness. Like others have said, if you like your ribs fall off the bone tender in a hurry ~ foil.

I always foil with them in brown sugar, honey, parlay squeeze butter and sometimes a little apple juice if looking to dry.

I've foiled just to see how they turn out, but only going for 30 minutes.

I'm also reaching for a beer...ker-sploosh!!!!

humdogj 08-28-2011 04:49 PM

Didn't see everyone's posts till after foil...oh well. I'll post the prOn later. I'm not sure how I prefer my ribs. I haven't really eaten too many in my life...I just like good food and in the case of ribs, don't matter if they are fall off the bone or not. Tasty food is tasty food and I'll take 'em any way I can get 'em!

Hey, Michael, those ribs look great but what did you marinate that toaster in?

humdogj 08-28-2011 05:09 PM

Final stages...just took them out of the foil and back on the smoker. I only went 30 min. in foil so they wouldn't get mushy. Probably an hour to go, saucing them in 30. Will mos def have prOn later!
