Default Tough bark on ribs! Ugh

I picked up a couple of racks of Walmart special baby back ribs ($7.00 per rack).... I was gonna cook them 1.5 hrs smoke, 1.5 hrs foiled, 1 hr back on smoke all @ 225*.

After the first 2 hrs (once the ribs were In foil) I left to to shoot skeet. I come back after 1 hr and the UDS has shot up to 315*. I figured no big deal ill just go 30min at the end instead of an hr. ribs looked good on the bend test. So I took them off.

The bark was rubbery and tough. Kinda like beef jersey. But other than the bark the meat was ok. Did I just buy crappy ribs from ole Walmart. Or did my temp spike ruin them?

I've cooked a ton of ribs.... This is a first for me.
