Do you all let them rest awhile before cutting them or does it matter ? I did take the membrane off before cooking ,they did taste good ,or is my frustration with these is part of cooking babybacks , any help is appreciated,,, thanks

We let ribs rest a short while, and always remove the membrane. Are you sure the heat was reading accurately?

I had the same thought. Are you taking the temps at grate level?

I've always found that the 3,2,1 seems too long for BB's so your 3 hrs total shouldn't have overcooked these like that.
I agree with Sailor, I'm betting your temps were higher than you thought?

As for resting any type of rib, I always take a good dab or two of butter and lay them on the ribs as soon as they come off the grill the final time and loosely tent them for a good 30 minutes but that may be just me.

As for the membrane, I Never leave it on. There's a lot of debate on that but for me its just my preference. I'm just not a fan of it on there so ill take the extra minute to chuck it.

Let us know what you find out if you wouldn't mind and don't get discouraged.
Every one of us, every one of us has had some rib issues at least once, some of us more than once lol. I've had plenty of racks come out either chewy or overcooked until I found the exact temp and time and quality of rib as well.
