Question Ribs: Foil? Rest? BB? Spares?

Do you foil your ribs or not? How about resting, do you rest them like you would a butt or a brisket?

While we're at it - do you prefer Baby backs or Spares?

im a trimmed spares kinda guy, more meatier than bb's...as far as foiling goes, i try to avoid it, but if im in a rush and want to eat dinner, ill do it, but only for 30-40 minutes, not a mushy rib kinda guy.

I do spares. Been letting them ride lately, nofoil. I let set on counter 5-10 min. They seem to slice cleaner.

Foil, baby backs only. 1.5 on smoke, then foil the remainder, rest out of foil
for about 30 mins...

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.

I do baby backs and foil them. I'm not a big fan of spares. Something about the flavor is a little off for me.

I honestly beleive there is no correct answer for this. However, I currently like my BB's unfoiled, and my spares foiled. I let them rest.

Exactly why I posted the poll. The answers will vary as much as the people and the Q they prefer.
I have the way I like to do them (spares, short foiling, very little rest), but I know everyone else has their own preferences.

Sometimes I want spares, sometimes I want BBs. I never foil BBs and have shyed away from foiling spares lately!

I did two slabs Tuesday. St. Louis spares using no foil. Slab of loin backs using the 2-1-1 method. I added a half cup of apple juice when I foiled them. The foiled ones didn't have much of the rub flavor, but they were very tender. The spares were very tasty and had the tug factor. Really though when it comes to ribs, I like them all. EXCEPT BOILED!!!!!!!!!!

St. Louis trimmed spares - no foil - sprayed every hour - 5-6 hours in the smoke.
