The last time I made baby backs and St. Louis ribs, the cook went somewhere between 5 and 6 hours.
The pork chop I would smoke it till about 125-130 internal temperature, then then throw on a hot grill till about 140ish internal temperature. The carry over cooking should bring it past 145 degrees internal temperature. This will ensure that the chop will remain moist and tender.
Depending on what temperature you cook at will determine how long it will take for the St. Louis cut ribs to cook. Yesterday I did 2 racks of St. Louis cut ribs in 3.5 hours cooking at 300-325 on one of my kettles.
