Here is how I cook beef ribs and they always turn out delicious. Two hours at about 290* then wrap for another two hours at 290*. I don't use anything in the foil when I wrap other than the ribs. Check tenderness, and remove from cooker when perfectly tender. Four and a half hours maximum time at 290*.
