Default 3 - two - 1

(Regarding STL):

I have read all the posts (and recipes in other places on the web / books) recommending the 3-2-1 method...but I just can't figure out how TWO ever works?!? It always seems WAY, WAY too long in foil to me.

The first time I used TWO, the ribs were TOTALLY overcooked.

I have since experimented with everything from 30 minutes, to 45 minutes, to 1 hour and back down again. Time & again, it seems to me that the MAXIMUM is 45 minutes, unless you want to seriously risk having WAY over-cooked ribs. (I'm talking pork here.)

This is on a Good One Marshall smoker with a target temp of 225, that might fluctuate from 215 - 250.

I was killing some time tonight searching around on the forums to see if anyone else had similar experience and it seems nobody else has posted about TWO being WAY too much time in foil. Everyone always seems to reference "3-2-1", which seems like a recipe for DISASTER, to me. I wanted to see if others have had similar experience to me?
