My favorite part that I never noticed is the "200% satisfaction guaranteed".
Mileage may always vary and definitely worth searching and reading, but my experience is that loin/baby backs 2 hours foiled will produce mushy ribs. Baby Backs usually are closer to a 4 hour total cook than 5. I'd give them 2 hours of smoke, wrap 'em and check them after an hour. If you're seeing a lot of bone or they probe with no resistance then it's time for finishing. If they're not ready yet then I'd re-wrap 'em and check them 30 minutes later.

Really hard to give definitives because it depends on how steady your temps are, what temps you're using (I'm typically 225 on the grate) and MOST importantly... how you like your ribs!
