I also had the problem a few years ago and the only way I could get tender was to finnish on the grill. What I did was to add more brown sugar AFTER my rub and cook them longer, stange how the moisture came back into to them....foil does make it easier, however once you figure it out, foil is just an extra step...if I cook hi heat ,say 325* (I had a disaster and had to crash cook) I took a 2nd out of 110 teams...so I started playing with higher heat..and my finnishes also went up..but every smoker cooks different and just keep at it, let them cook longer...then glaze at 225* or so to tighten up...and membrane off will dry out a rib, but most of the time I remove..just keep trying ...even the practice ribs are real gooood!
