I bought some St Louis ribs that have rub already on them, never cooked any before, looking online for tips.

Read buying a gas smoker is the way to go, says better flavor than electric.

Anyone here use gas or electric smoker?

I have a charcoal grill with smoker on the side, used it to smoke a turkey one Thanksgiving, had to baby it constantly to keep temperature where it needed to be.

Might have to cook these in oven then maybe grille them a little, but now wanting a smoker.

We have a MasterCraft unit on my back deck. About the size of a man cave fridge. We also have a table top version. Both are electric. My wife won’t even use the big one. She absolutely loves the small one. We’re having pork ribs tonight!

I have a propane fueled one and it works great but we live in a windy hill and on most windy or semi-windy days the burner is blown off. It's a pain to go out and discover the unit off. It works fine until it turns off to slow the heating and then I think the pilot is blown off. Electric would not have that problem.

I buy unseasoned baby back ribs and use my own rub. Then I seal them up tight in aluminum foil and cook in the oven at 300 degrees for 2 1/2 hours. Then I slather them with BBQ sauce and put them on the charcoal grill with hickory chips that have been soaked in water and drained. The chips give the smoky flavor. I put them on while there is still a good flame going so the sauce gets charred. Everybody that has them loves them. They just fall off the bone, though technically that is considered overcooked. But not in my book.

I have a smoker, but have yet to use it as a smoker. I have used it as a charcoal grill. My neighbor cut down a Maple tree last year and I took the wood to use in the smoker. I just need to get a day that I’m not doing much to be able to keep an eye on the temperature for hours at a time.

Isn’t that the true definition of well done ribs? FOTB?

If you watch the BBQ competition shows, they say the meat should hold on to the bone. I totally disagree. I have trouble flipping them on them on the grill. They want to fall apart if I don’t get the tongs completely around them. I’ll post the rub recipe tomorrow if anyone is interested.

Yes I'll try your rub next time on unseasoned ribs, also will try your technique for cooking in oven and grilling.

The best ribs I ever ate were grilled first to prepare them and then finished off in the oven. I like ribs but personally have never grilled them. I purchase mine from Costco.

Cooked or uncooked?

That's where I bought these.

I buy Curly's which are frozen and cooked we just heat them which I know does not provide the best.
