I think I'll just shoot for 250-275 and start checking it around 4-5 hours and see how it feels. No wrapping either? I typically don't wrap my spares or baby backs. Don't like my ribs too mushy... i like some bite.
Sounds to me like you're good to go as far as method is concerned. I haven't done them cut apart, so maybe check them a little earlier - wouldn't hurt to check at 3 hours just to see what's up - ya can't uncook 'em, know what I mean? I don't wrap either btw. Short rib is getting to be my favorite cut of beef.
