Default Spare rib smoking questions

I'm going to give some spare ribs a shot this weekend for the first time and have a few questions. If y'all wouldn't mind helping out I'd really appreciate it.

1) I've decided to try no foil (going to keep it simple for the first time) but I don't have a feel of when ribs will be done. How do you know? Is it probe tender like brisket or something else?

2) I'm planning to cook at 250, is that a good temp?

3) I know every piece of meat cooks differently, but what's a good ballpark time for a rack of spares at 250? 4 hours? 6 hours?

4) How long to rest after pulling them off the smoker?

Thank y'all for the help.
