Extremely dark ribs
« on: June 26, 2020, 09:26:44 AM »
Hi all - looking for suggestions to "lighten up" my smoked ribs. I have cooked at 225, using the 3-2-1 timing with a modest amount of hickory and cherry wood. Using Heath Riles rubs (excellent, btw). I did read comments about too much sugar in the rub, but same results with 4 different rubs. Good news is that they taste good, but looking to fine tune. Should I wrap sooner? Use a lower temp? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks all!

I never wrap anything.  As a diabetic, I rarely use anything sugar based, either.  My favorite blend is salt, onion powder, and garlic powder, and black pepper.

I'm with Larry.  No wrapping.  I use the same rub mixture and not being diabetic, add brown sugar.
