Had to take it off at 12 hours at about 180 degrees. Would have let it go longer, but had some time constraints. So it didn't pull as well as it could have, but it still tasted great.

ya, my goal was 190. But i ran outta fuel, which delayed time and i just said screw it at 12 hours. It was getting too late. Will definitely be more prepared next time.

next time move it into your oven if you run into the same situation.  meat only takes smoke until 140 degrees after which you're just slow cooking it anyway.

ribs, as is the case with all pork, are really easy.  just buy baby  backs from costco/sams, rip off the membrane from the back if they are still on there, lather with mustard, then cover with rub.  cook @ b/w 240-280 for 3 hours, then load up with sauce and put back on smoker for the final hour.  pull off at 195-200.

regular spare ribs take closer to 5-6 hours.

Looks great mikey.

How do you monitor internal temps with Ribs? I imagine my wireless maverick won't work as well as it did with the pork butt.

i just jam the probe in b/w ribs after a few hours.  they're kinda like brisket in that you don't really cook to temp as much as just cooking until you can't life them off the grate w/o almost falling apart.

you don't.    getting a therm probe anywhere near a bone screws up the readings.

I have a bullet style smoker, so I drilled a hole at grate level and added a second thermometer.     Then you just do the bend test or bone test when you're getting close on time.

you could also just 3-2-1 those bad boys and not even have to worry about temp or "bend test".

sure follow his advice.   knock yourself out.   MANY recommend the bend or bone twist because the bones in ribs screw with accurate readings.  Especially for novices who don't know how to place the probe.   You will also find that the temp of the meat varies from one end to the other due to variance in thickness and meatiness.

just because I hadn't done it doesn't mean I don't know a lot of people who do, and didn't spend most of the week before reading up on it.

for those that missed the REAL part of clams' post.   this is also called the "bend test"

Mods, plz rename thread

Nicname smokes ribs and fail: everyone else makes delicious looking food.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

BTWm here are the recipes I used

Sauce
16oz tomato sauce
16oz ketchup
12oz chili sauce
1c apple cider vinegar
1c brown sugar
1c corn syrup
1/2c honey
1tbs worcestrshire
1tbs soy sauce
1/2c dry rub
1tbs hot sauce

simmer for 1/2hr

It makes a lot so, I usually make 1/2 a batch at a time unless I plan on cooking for a lot of people

RIBS

1) Remove membrane (if you don't know, Google it!)
2) Rub of your flavor/heat on both sides
3) Regular mustard (no skimping) on both sides (the MOST important step!!)
4) 2 hours at 225ish degrees in the smoking Brinkman. (I like a little moisture too, so I add one inch of merlot to the water pan - water will do too!)

5) Add a little more rub
6) Place U-down on foil
7) Add some apple juice
8) 1.5 - 2 more hours on the smoker at 225

9) Remove foil
10) Put back on 225 smoker "U" up (careful, they could fall off the bone!!)
11) Add a touch more rub to the ribs
12) Add a light layer of honey (like I do like when I snapped the pic!!), or BBQ sauce ouf your choice and close the smoker.
13) 15-20 minuter later they're ready to eat!

Nothing stupid, just GD good ribs.... I've competed them for years and these are as good as any I've ever done. And they're simple...

Water in a smoker is only for temperature regulation not moisture, flavor, etc.
