The last several times I've cooked St. Louis ribs, I've overcooked them and there has been no smoke ring.

Here's what I did today: 3 hours at 250, then an hour in foil, then almost an hour out of foil, sauced.

Almost falling off the bone, no smoke ring.

What have I forgotten?

I follow the q'ing process for Best Ribs In the Universe. Three hours at 180 degrees, then to 250 degrees, spray every 30 minutes, and they are done in 2-3 more hours. I do this with babyback and spares seem to cook about the same.

You could always do the old TQ rub and rinse trick before applying your own rub, or do like some do and just include a little TQ in your rub😉

Monty down at Klose Pits answered a question on Brisket for me while I was there picking up a pit in the mid 90"s. He said the first
3 or 4 hours they weren't so much concerned about temp as they were smoke. After that smoke period, turn up the wick and let her go. I also remember him saying they didn't pull it right out of the cold box and throw it on the smoker, it sat out for quite some time.

Might be some kind of equation to apply this to ribs, I don't know😉

Lee,

I have to smile as I write this...
I have a theory - can you drop me an email so I have your addy? (I'll explain offline of this thread)

FYI - I remember cooking the Mass State with you some 10 or so years ago (thank you) and I remember you being surprised that you achieved 'smoke ring' - you were slightly surprised...stated 'you didn't think it was possible with WSMs' - I may be able to shed some light on that smoke ring situation.
