All of the above are good ways. Just make sure they are done. Bend test is a good sway to tell. If you can pik up one end of the ribs and pull it up so that it bends 90 degrees, they are ready. everything else is personal preference for either flavor or timing and there is no one correct answer.

exactly.

but i would suggest learning to cook em without foiling.
i personally feel it is just 1 less step you have to take during the cook and in alot of cases unnecessary.
some will agree, some will disagree, for sure.

By the size I am assuming that they are spares, but maybe not??? that info would help.

If they are spares, are they already trimmed St. Louis style?

Wow... 4.5 lbs already trimmed! Those are some big racks!

Since they were so cheap, experiment. Try 3-2-1 or some variation of that, try some without foil. See what works best for your cooker.
