Yours do look better but then again I usually don't use smoke when it is an inside cook. I will try a lower slower next. Both come out really well. Surprising how many people are shocked at them. Like they have never heard of beef ribs. Not sure why I always cook them together instead of separated. Not sure how much difference cept the ends get more cooked.Do you like 'em? If the answer to that is yes, then no, you're not wrong! Lots of ways to do all the stuff we cook......just need to figure out which way produces what you like, Tony!
