2 hours on the smoke, 1.5-2 hours in the foil crutch, 1/2 hour to glaze and finish. If you open the foil pack and pick the ribs up with tongs put the tongs about half way on the rack from one end. If the rib bends and just starts to pull apart in the middle, competition ribs are done. I rest them for 15-30 minutes then glaze-15-30 min to get a nice glaze. Competition ribs don’t fall off the bone, if you bite into a ribs you should be able to see the bite mark and just a bit of a pull to it.
