How long do you smoke ribs in a charcoal smoker?
Smoke the ribs for about 5 hours, applying your mop about every 45 minutes. The thickest part of the rack of ribs should be about 170-180 degrees F if a constant temperature was maintained while smoking. During the last hour, I wrap the ribs in foil after applying my mop, and I put them back on the smoker.
