I smoke 3-2-1 at 225. Use lump with hickory chunks and pecan chips scattered in the basket. Been hitting pretty consistent on ribs, gotta work on the other 2 meats!

AT my last cookoff, I attempted 3-2-1 on my spares, but it didn't quite work out that way. I was aiming for 225-250, but the big WSM stayed at 275. At the three hour mark, I went to put them in foil and they already had a nice bend to them. I put them in foil with honey and brown sugar, wrapped them in a towel and placed them in my cooler. I put them back on for maybe an hour or so with the last half hour out of the foil. I glazed them for the last few minutes and they came out fantastic. They took seventh out of 100 teas, so something must have worked.

One question I did not see in this thread is how long do you rest your ribs? I see several who rest, but how long?

I don't rest ribs. I never noticed a bit of difference.

Yeah, we try to time it to where they go straight out of the cooker and onto the cutting board, within a few minutes. Doesn't always work like that, but that's what we try to do...

Not to go in circles but I really did not get the true advantage or disadvantage to wrapping ribs meat side down vs. meat side up (no broth or liquids in foil for sake of the discussion). Anyone care to clarify?

Has anyone ever tried injecting a rack of ribs? If so what was the result?
