Wow. I thought this post was buried, never to be seen again. Surprised to find another dozen posts.

Thanks! It was 5+ hours at 275. The smaller rack was perfect. The larger rack could have used another 20min. They both were delicious but I'm my own worst critic. Nailed one but not the other. Much like when I cook two briskets at the same time.

Last time I cooked a full rack or regular beef ribs (3 connected) bone side down, and the bones basically slipped right out of the meat. That's probably because it was overdone, and had nothing to do with fat side up or down. Then again I'm not so sure, that's why I'm asking...
My yoder has the heat source come from the bottom. I left bone side down the entire cook. One rack had an end bone that felt like it was about to wiggle loose which is why I decided it was close to done and sauced it up and let it go for only another 30 min. I will say that around the 4 hour mark, IT for both racks was around 200 with my thermapen. Because of all the comments about 'cooking til you think it's done and then cook it some more' I let them go and didn't temp them a single time again. I went the rest of the way by feel. They went for another 90 minutes or so after that.
