pegged 225 and maintained for the duration of the cook. a little under 3 hours for the legs, close to 4 ((weeeeeee bit over)) for the baby backs.
My taste buds thought it tasted good. There is a place down here...well in Fort Lauderdale called Tom Jenkins and mine were as juicy, tender and tug off the bone as theirs. Flavor profile was different. Wife doesnt like their ribs either. Nor does she like Shorty's ((a bbq chain that is horendous)).
Even when my firend coal grills burgers she says they are smokey and seems to have brainwashed the kiddlets into tasting the same way she does.
I love her none the less.
Maybe your wife isn't to fond of ribs in general? My wife hates it when I cook ribs every weekend for an entire month
Try some different foods without the smoke. Who wouldn't like ABT's, MOINKS, or Pig Shots? Try a pork butt and make a Cuban sammich like I do to please my wife and I get to cook on the WSM.
Shortys does stink.
