I voted wet, but I really like both.

One interesting tidbit... Watching a FoodNetwork show on KC rib places, most if not all used a sauce during the cooking process even on their "dry" ribs. So they were wet at some point. You should try that while experimenting.

It really depends on the rub. At Daisy May's BBQ in NYC, I really like their dry ribs and will buy them and not their wet "sticky" ribs. At home and in comps, I usually make wet.

I think a true wet rib would be a rack that is doused in sauce just prior to serving. I know it can't be considered a true dry rack if it has been glazed but it certainly isn't wet either. I prefer mine with a slight glaze and then some extra sauce on the side if the mood strikes me to dip!

Damp? I cook mine dry, but I usually put a light coating of sauce on them when I take them off the cooker, then wrap in foil and let them rest a few minutes before serving. They aren't dipped in sauce, and certainly don't have sauce dripping off them, but they aren't strictly dry, either.
