Default Higher Rib Temp - Quick Q

After watching a few of the pitmasters, I've decided to smoke my ribs at a higher temp today (like 260-275). Anyone have any idea how long St. Louis spare ribs should stay on the grill at that temp before they're done?

I'd do a bend test at 3 hours and take it from there. Could go 3.5 to 4.

I usually do mine at 275-300. 2-1-1. Unfoiled, foiled, unfoiled.

Start the bend test after you see about 1/2" of pullback from the bone ends.

I like to do ribs at 275° and check them after 2 1/2 hours.
Good time to glaze them...
When they pass the bend test, they are done.
I seldom foil mine.
