FYI. There is a sub-group called Grilling & Chilling here.

There's just times when you have to use an oven if you want ribs (and can't afford a ceramic cooker, ie. Big Green Egg). Alton Brown's oven rib recipe is pretty good. Even on a smoker, 8 hours for ribs is too long.

I rub my ribs, then wrap in foil, onto a cooling rack inside a sheet pan and 325* for three hours. Fall off the bone good! Or I did 275 for 8 hours, but it was overkill. Same thing for more than twice the time.

you could probably adapt the 3-2-1 method a lot guys use in the smoker.

3 hours on the rack, 2 hours in foil with some apple juice or other liquid (I used to rub them with butter and brown sugar) and one more hour back out of the foil to set up the rub and glaze the last 20 minutes or so.

These time are approximates, and for use in the 225 range. You still need to check the ribs to determine where they are at in the process. For example, you may find that certain racks will be too done if you leave them in the foil for that long.

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?

it can totally be done in the oven, this is the method i tend to follow.

i have made some changes to recipe, mostly spice/heat wise.

but i do have to agree with the smoker is definitely the way to go for everything, even eggs!

I agree with falling off the bone being overdone.

One way to get them uber-tender but still have enough texture to stay on the bone is to do the pre-cooking...then refrigerate the ribs...then finish on the grill. The collagen breaks down to gelatin during the slow-cooking and can be a bit mushy. But if you refrigerate them...the gelatin 'sets' and it takes MORE heat to get it all mushy again, than it took to get them mushy to begin with. So they're still 'fork tender' but retain the ability to stick to the bone.
Early brewers were primarily women, mostly because it was deemed a woman's job. Mesopotamian men, of some 3,800 years ago, were obviously complete assclowns and had yet to realize the pleasure of brewing beer.- Beer Advocate

Not that anyone cares about my opinion, but I agree that 8 hours in the oven is too long. I do a few racks at a time on my smoker with a dry rub only (except to periodically spritz with apple juice) and they are done after 5 or 6 hours. No mop, no sauce, no aluminum foil - just spicy, smokey, juicy, pork goodness. While good ribs can be cooked in an oven, in my opinion there is no need to cook them for hours (in an oven or on a pit) if you are going to drown the flavor with some sweet sauce. And before everyone starts yelling, I know lots of people like ribs with sauce.
