Default Baby back ribs.....skin off or on?

So i know the theory behind keeping the skin on versus off. I like to take it off my St. louis style, figure theres enough fat in the ribs to keep them moist. Now for baby backs whats the prefered method? Also i was thinking about 3 hours for baby's as oppossed to 5 for St. Louis style. What say you?

Please click on the link and go down to post #5.
I always remove the skin on both pork and beef ribs.

Also the Google at the bottom of the main page only searches this forum. Good luck!

Yep, I always remove the skin. Baby backs are favorite.

Remove it and get some rub on both sides, 2.5 - 3 hrs @ 225*, just do the bend test so you don't over cook them.

Membrane, or skin? I'm not sure I've ever seen either BB's or Spares sold skin on...

If membrane, yes, always remove it. IF you can't (I've had it where it was in little
pieces) remove it, then score it to the point that the smallest piece is no bigger than
a quarter of an inch, square. I actually placed 3rd in a competition with BB's where
the membrane wouldnt remove so we scored it...

I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

That is interesting Hance. I tend to just fuss until I get the membrane off. I have heard that if you are cooking over direct heat, you can leave it on until done cooking, when it peels right off.

I normally peel, but if I come across a tough membrane, I'll make slits through it to let the smoke penetrate.

I always remove the membrane. It's not that hard, once you get the hang of it.

I always remove, just grab it with paper towel and pull. Takes less than a minute and makes the experience much better. Costco removes theirs on the BBs almost all the time.
