Default Help with ribs - after the cook

I hope I describe this right ....... untrimmed spares, using pretty much a 3-2-1 method, adjusted as I go. First step, beautiful color, bend test the meat is just starting to crack. Second step, into the foil they go. Check at the one hour mark, very tender. Back on unfoiled for about an hour, bend test says if I shake them they might break apart. Off they come and once they're cooled down, they're very tasty and have some pull, maybe a bit too much, but they were ready to fall apart out of the smoker, once they cool down they seem to tighten up too much. Would wrapping them while they are cooling to slow the cooling process help? Any other suggestions?
Ok, I admit it ......... "Hi, my name is Don and I'm a BBQ addict"

If your not going to eat them as soon as they are done just wrap and put them in a cooler to keep warm. Its true that if they cool down they do tend to taste dry (best served hot), even microwaving them back up helps with the tenderness.

I eat my ribs as soon as they come off the pit they don't need to take no rest But then I don't like pork jello pops either Foil was introduced to in BBQ to make impatient & beginner cooks semi successful. Loose the foil cook 'em straight through to the desired tenderness and Scarf 'em down.
