    Pit Barrel Cooker - First Spare Rib Cook

    This is my first rib cook with the PBC. What temperature should I be looking to pull them off?

    I noticed on the PBC site it says 3 hours, then glaze. For a total of about 4 hours.

    I am 3 hours in and the internal temp is 167.

    It's hard to tell when ribs are done base on internal temp, though 167F doesn't sound done to me. Check out MH's article on how to tell when ribs are ready. http://amazingribs.com/tips_and_tech...hey_ready.html

      I usually take mine off at 195*F internal between the two largest and thickest ribs on the rack and cook at 225*F smoker temp. Since ribs are fairly thin and lots of bone you need to watch them closely after the 3 hr mark.

        Yeah the bend test. It to almost 6 hours for Baby backs last night. Never took a meat temp. Too many bones.

          You can temp them and use how easily the probe slides in as a guide, kinda like poking them with a toothpick

            Never could get the bend test to work well for me, but poking with a probe really told me how tender it was. It took a bit, but when I get one the way i like it, or and under done one i poke it a bunch to get used to the feel and its worked well for me.

              Kinda took all of your advice. Bend test, probe, temp, etc. Ultimately they stayed on the grill for 4.5 hours. Pulled them off. Had some work to finish before we could eat them.

              Wow!

              Just Wow!

              This were the best ribs we've had in a long time. My SO couldn't stop complimenting me on how good they tasted, how much quality smoke flavor there was and how well the new PBC smoker performed.

              Thanks guys.

              No pics as I was simply too busy...
