Default foiling question

When wraping the ribs in foil, do you foil first, or after smoking a while? I have been wraping my ribs in foil for the first hour, then unwraping and finishing for about 2 hours more. I have been finishing mid pack, and need to move up. Thanks

there is a lot of good info in this site. what I do is a 3-2-1 at 225

3 hours live smoke
2 hours foil
1 hour to finish and glaze.

Im no expert, and must say I posted a rib help thread and everyone has been very helpfull. Some really good tips.

I don't foil at all...

But if I did I wouldn't start out with foil.

I'll foil after they have good color, and add some additional ingredients for flavor, unwrap after they are starting to get the feel I want, and set a sauce and/or glaze.

So, boiling first is out of vogue?

Yeah, you are doing it backwards. Once the surface of the meat gets to around 160 it doesn't take smoke any more. That's the reason behind the 3-2-1 other people mentioned. You want to expose it to the smoke first with no foil, then foil later with some good stuff in the foil (rub, sugar, etc.).

Not at all. It's Kevin Roberts recommended.

Actually, boiling and/or steaming is still very much in vogue, I saw the corporate chef of Tony Roma's explaining the process.

I only cooked those once. Didn't foil them, took third. They were on the smoker for about 20 hours too. Well, that's what makes BBQ fun We all have a favorite process, and many of them work well.
