I have a question about pork ribs and the Traeger Bronson 20 pellet smoker/grill. This has happened a couple of times. When I make ribs, they come out almost too cooked, falling off the bone in shreds. The flavor and smoke are great, but they seem to be overcooked, according to what I see on TV. You can't just pick up a rib and take a bite -- the meat just falls off. Anyway, I think I need to adjust my cooking times. Presently, I'm doing 3 hr smoke, 2 hr wrapped and 1 hour glaze. I add some apple juice and seasonings to the wrap. I don't really know which times to adjust. Your help would be greatly appreciated. BTW, I usually make a single rack, in the 3 to 4 pound weight range. Use Williams Rib Tickler rub and Traeger Sugar Lips glaze, membrane removed.

You did not say what temperature you were cooking the ribs. I usually cook ribs round 250-275 degrees. You might try that for starters. IMHO, you might cut back on the time. the ribs are being way over cooked. Try these temps and do not wrap next time. Good luck

Hi, 

I have the grill set to 225 and it maintains the temp throughout the cook. Do you have any suggestions about where and how much I would cut back the time? TIA. Also, during the smoke time, the Traeger runs at around 190-200.
