Never had a problem with them. Dry rub them without all the extra stuff (no mustard or pickle juice). Throw it on the smoker at 265. When the bark gets the color I want, I put it in a pan and foil it with some liquid...usually beef broth. Put it back on the smoker until it is done. No temperatures...cook it by look and feel. Keep it simple, it's only barbeque.
