1. Pick whatever temp you want.
2. Cook till ribs pass bend test.
3. Boom, perfectly tender ribs.

I did ribs yesterday. One rack took 90 mins longer than the rest at same temp. 4 hrs vs 5.5 hrs. You can't set a time on it like you can brownies or cupcakes.

I have never wrapped, don't see the point. Baby backs I cook at 250, STL at 275, about 4 hours for each as a ballpark, but they need to pass the toothpick test. If you want to sauce, I'd start at about 3 1/2 hours in, multiple coats.

300, 3.5-4 hours. Toothpick test is the best indicator. I check for the first time at 3 hours.

St Louis ribs I'll go 275, takes 4-5 hours

Baby back, I'll go as high as 350, but usually 275 and 3-4 hours

I do STL ribs unwrapped at 250 F. Usually takes at least 5 hrs, sometimes as much as 6 hrs. I look for a little bit of pull back on the ends of the bones, maybe 1/2 to 3/4 inch. They always come out tender and juicy. I usually don't sauce them on the pit, as that tends to make the bark soggy. I just serve sauce on the side.

I consider ribs to be the easiest thing I cook. Almost set and forget. Just remember to start checking at 5 hrs.

I do full spares at 225°f for about 5-1/2 to 6 hours. I use a WSM with beer and water in the pan. If you are into final temps they should be around 190°f to 195°f but you will know if they are done as soon as you push the thermometer in because it should probe tender. Chris

Y'all want pics? That is not a spritz or any unnatural liquid...

Williams Rib Tickler. I add a little extra course ground black pepper and cayenne if I want more heat. I never get the bone pull back like everyone else does.

Depends on your cooking temp. If your cooker is going to spend any time at 300 or higher, I would not use sugar.

I use brown sugar in my rub with no issues, but I tend to cook in the 225-275* range so that helps I'm sure.
