Ribs are on...

I'm not happy at all with the pack of ribs I got from BJ's and if they weren't so far away I would take them back. But I'm cooking them anyways. They're over trimmed, shiners. Take a look.

Man you weren't kidding. Those ribs look like the hack and pack guys got overzealous. I’ve had pretty good luck with my local BJ’s. But I have also had a hard time finding nice looking ribs as well.
Larry do you always cook your ribs in a rib rack? What type of adjustments do you make when using a rack? I used one once and didn’t like the way mine came out, maybe it was something that I did?

They will be fine Larry! I use the same rib rack but I try to trim the ribs down in length so they don't hand over past the edge of the water bowl. The trimmed pieces I lay on top of the rest of the ribs. Seems to have worked for me.

No Dave, but when I do more than 2 racks on the WSM you kinda need to do them in a rack due to lack of space. I've had good luck using the racks, not problems or complaints.
