Gonna do a 4 hour no peak at 225!
Theses baby backs are meaty. I'm gonna use apple wood for the first time.
As for the seasoning it's in the picture.
Any suggestions let me no there going in the smoker now ( noon )

At 4 hours, I doubt they will be anywhere close to done.   I would suggest increasing the temp to 235, and after 4.5 hours, take a look.   When I do BB ribs, they usually run about 5 to 5.5 hours.

+1 on Steve's comment.
When I do BB ribs I go 4.5 hours at 235 Then pull them, sauce/wrap in foil then back in for .5 hours.

Well it's been on now for 3 hours at 225. Looking to to eat at 5:30.
Should I turn it up then or keep it at 225 for 5 1/2 hours?
Thanks

I am late getting back here, but I would turn up the temp to 240.

Well total cook time was 5 1/2 hours at 225 but the last 45 mins I turned up to 235 cause of getting nervous from the responses.
At 4 hours 45 mins I did the tooth pick test and they seemed done then but decided just to go another 45 mins at 235. The ribs came out perfect! A nice clean bone.
Next time I'm gonna try 235 @ 4 1/2 hours
Thanks

I always use 235 for ribs, John.  Helps with the bark & time, and has no effect on moistness.

Enjoyed the step-by-step process, I can smell those ribs already!  Fun read, I'm planning to purchase a model #1 soon, this will probably be my first meal in the smoker.  Yay- thanks!  ~Tom~

Hi Everyone!

I purchased my SI 2D in August and everyone I have fed with it since LOVES it! Has anyone ever done 12 racks of baby back ribs at once? Son gets married this Saturday and I was asked to smoke the ribs and homemade mac and cheese for the rehearsal dinner and I have no idea how long that many ribs are going to take. I will be using two of the rib racks made for my SI 2D. Any ideas?

Thanks, Mojo

Hi Mary Jo, and welcome!  Maybe Walt's post will be your inspiration...

It's particularly important to rotate racks halfway through with some being so close to the element. Cooked 2 spare & 3 baby backs yesterday. Used 4 racks. Spares take up much more space.
