I have done a 3-2-1 before, but they were some pretty meaty beef ribs, so it does work ok. That being said, I had better success when I kept my temps low, 220-225 degrees, and just let them smoke without foil. I did mop them occasionally to keep them moist, and they turned out fabulous after a little over 5 hours. Since this is your first time, I would recommend doing them straight at lower temps, so you get a feel for how they cook. Then you can adjust your methods with foil, etc. on later cooks based on your straight-through cooking results.
