Exclamation Poll for those who have tried Hot and Fast - Ribs

This important poll is for those who have actually BOTH smoked low and slow and Hot and fast ribs.

Please do NOT vote (there will be other polls coming) if you:

Have never tried Low and Slow (below 250 for this case)

Have never PURPOSELY tried Hot and Fast (above 250 for this case)

are voting considering any other meat... this is not about ANYTHING but ribs.

Please restrain yourself... and NO... NO... this is not about saying what is best.... it is for something else. This is also not a case that all development of your recipe ends with Hot and Fast or Low and Slow.

I was lucky to find these odd but informative posts by a former member, Barbafunkoramaque I think, who channeled this "popdaddy" and made a few videos before cooking my fist ribs on a smoker, and, well, it worked pretty damn good.

I already voted, but it occurs to me that I cook full spares, while others cook BB's or STL's. The smaller, lighter weight racks change temperature at a faster rate, which could effect results.

El Ropo... sorry I cannot count your votes... you answered no to I have cooked a rack of hot and fast ribs... if you HAVE NOT DONE BOTH... please do not vote. This is a comparative study from those who have done both.

I've done both, but have done BB's and spares alike. Not sure if that really matters for the purposes of this poll or not Donnie.

Also....I've done both with and without foil and have success both ways. Which I chose at the time depended upon my time constraints or how big of a PIA I wanted to deal with.

N2Qn

you did not vote in question 2... this means you never tried hot and fast, therefore your results will be removed for the purpose of this poll. was this a mistake?

Nuthin wrong with foil... i learned that when I tried to transfer my skills from the non foil cook on my big stick burners to my webber kettle.

Hot/Fast, Low/Slow, Foil/No-Foil: It's really just a matter of being one with the ribs. ....Are we at page 3 yet?

Enkidu.... once again... not part of the results. Please... no voting unless you have done both. If you have not tried "either" there is no way you can say which was was easier or harder.

Shadowdog, sorry, you votes will be rejected because you did not answer yes to question 2. You have to have actually done Hot and Fast to give a comparative analysis on it. Was this a mistake....
