Regardless, that sounds like an awesome first cook.
I highly recommend taking notes about what you did and what you like or don't like about the results. Include any thoughts on what you would want to do differently next time.
The ribs will be firmer if you cook them a little less. I prefer ribs with a little bite myself so I do not wrap.
