3-2-1 on baby backs is going the make mush. 2-1-.5? Ish. First time dont get fancy. Start the brisket the night before salt and pepper, cook til it kinda jiggles when ya poke at it, and probe tender

By the sounds of things your just getting your feet wet so keep it simple. 50/50 Kosher salt & course black pepper 10% granulated garlic. Pit at 300 deg the bones will finish in about 3-4 passing the *bend test brush with sauce give i 15 min to set up.

For the brisket( get a packer) trim off the HARD fat apply your rub( see above) on the pit point to the fire box. At 300 your looking at about 45 min lb but that is just a very rough estimate based on experience YMMV the brisket is done when it passes the* poke test.
*Poke Test> use a skewer or a thermo probe when it slides in like a hot knife cutting soft butter it's done. Do your testing in the flat as it is the last to finish. Good luck!

I say throw the ribs on and forget about them for 3 hrs, check them then sauce when they bend like Bludawg said.

Motley Q 01-31-2013 09:03 PM

Sounds like you haven't done babybacks before either.

3-2-1 will get you mush

I also do 2-1-.5 at 250 in a kamado.

Make it simple your first time. ..buy a rub. Use apple juice in the foil. Buy some BBQ sauce.

Spritz a couple times if you want.





Don't forget to pull the membrane

ive done ribs on my weber kettle but after watching youtube people do the 3-2-1 method and the come out good so im a little confused but i will take your guys word for it and try 2-1-.5 on sat to test it before the big game....

cardman 01-31-2013 09:21 PM

Ive always done a 2-2-1 method. When I wrap them in foil I also use about 2-3oz of beer as well in the foil. My temps are probably closer to 250 or 260 which is why mine might cook a bit longer. Plus I like my ribs falling off the bone and so do my guest.

Motley Q 01-31-2013 09:22 PM

The 3-2-1 method they used was probably for spares or St. louis cut and not babybacks.

Or maybe cooking at 225.

Remember, 99% of the youtube videos you see are made by people who have no clue. Listen to the folks here, they will set you right.

I agree with the person who said power through at 275-300 degrees for 3 hours without peeking or messing around. You will be rewarded.

3-2-1 method is for St. Louis trimmed or even untrimmed ribs.
Baby backs are smaller than the above cut.

i was going to throw the brisket on with the ribs and cook at 225 is this a bad idea then ???

still dont know what size brisket i was going to get

GrillsGoneWild 01-31-2013 10:07 PM

Cooking a brisket at 225, you are going to need about 1.5 hrs per pound. So if you get a small brisket at 8 lbs, that is 10 to 12 hours of cooking time (approximately).

Been there done that(225) If you want success and great BBQ don't cook lower than 275 EVER!

I beg to differ. Great BBQ can be cooked at different temperatures. I always cook my briskets at 225 and my ribs at 250 and have won many awards doing so. Don't assume that just because you didn't have success cooking at a certain temp that it must be wrong.

I have been trying the hot and fast methods lately with good results as well. But I still find that when smokin a ham, pork loin, and bacon, that low and slow is still the best.
