I don't compete in BBQ. I like that small window between not done enough and overcooked. My experience at home is that my family prefers fall off the bone ribs, not me. I like sauce on my ribs, but not too much. I never pre-sauce them even at home. But, I hate overly thick "gloppy" sauce that is too sweet. I prefer a thin glaze that has a sweet and sour profile.
