Foil is a tool one can use like the Thermometer for internal temp or the Clock. It is a "fixer" of sorts. It manipulates time for you. In the case of ribs, however, nearly everyone attempts to return their ribs to the natural state before presentation.

Kingfisher no, FEC yes.

Foil has made us more consistant. (Consistantly bad maybe but our scores have improved.) We have worked hard to perfect a process and take a lot of the guess work out of it. Foil helps us with that.

I guess its just hit or miss with the type of ribs youre doing. I mostly do babybacks and have found, foiling them on the FE is pointless, where as on my Pro Q its almost a necessity for at least one hour. Im going to start working with spares and see what happens.
