I’ll second what WV said. I screwed ribs up every way imaginable. It was actually one of the last meats I got any consistency on.

I let mine rest too for 30 minutes. It seems to me resting let’s the meat stick together more and doesn’t tear apart when cutting vs right off pit and cutting it seems to fall apart easier. I cook to that fine line of tenderness between about to fall off bone and not and resting keeps it on the bone for me.

I also remove the membrane. It makes the slab more pliable to me. I cooked side by side membrane on and off and i found -membrane on -curves the slab. I attribute it to membrane tightening. Both seemed to eat equally well but i remove it just in case that tightening does something i can’t sense. Again practice will reveal your style.

I had the same thought. Are you taking the temps at grate level?

This is just my 2 cents. I have found that I prefer BBQ ribs vs smoked ribs. Referring to cooking method. I cooked many racks of ribs on my new smoker till I figured out that the way I was cooking on the old grill wad a direct heat approach. Thing is on my old pit there was about 1 foot between the grate and the coals. So what that means is that I have a 300 dollar smoker that I only use for butts and briskets. No problem though. A man can't have to many grills. Next time you do ribs do them direct heat and see if your results change. Now after that I am not opposed to smoking ribs. I just prefer bbqing them over direct low heat. .
