Using an electric smoker?

pneubecker | Jul 17, 2007 08:53 AM

I have some in-laws coming over in a few days and they have requested some extra-tender "falling off the bone" ribs. I already have a few racks of baby back ribs and I was thinking about throwing them in my electric smoker. I am familiar with the 3-2-1 (or 2-2-1 with baby back) method. I was planning on giving a lit rub before hand and then smoking for two hours, then brushing with apple juice to add some moisture and then in the last hour coat it with a sweet bbq sauce about every 20 mins or so.

Is there a better way about cooking some really tender and delicious ribs that would be better, or any specific objections to my plan?
