If you are cooking dry ribs, I find that when the rack bends and the crust cracks in a few places the ribs are perfect. This is for a rib with some tooth, and how both restaurants I have worked at would pull them. However with a thicker, meatier trimmed rib sometimes they will not bend and you need to pinch the meat between the bones to see if it is tender.
