Anything OVER 300 and they will burn or get too done on you in a heartbeat.
So, for me 300 MAX on Ribs. 250-275 just right.
That's just my opinion and I really don't know Jack Didley anyway.
Yeah thats why I covet your picture of prime rib, kick.
I am in agreement with what Kick says here. In my experience, on my PIT, 250 to about 300 average. I hit 270 with that shut down after they weep. 250 is an accidental temp for me, I mean I don't ever intentionally dial that in. Also, I like the ring to go only part way... not all the way in.
So this is why I don't start off slow like I do briskets. Also starting off slow anbd then ramping up tends to dry the meat. I don't foil so I don't have to worry about it not having enough smoke.
