FAQ Subject: What internal temperature is needed for ribs?
I just received a thermometer probe with an external digital readout for XMAS. I will use it mainly for roasts and turkeys, however, can you accurately use it for ribs as well? What internal temperature is needed for ribs?
When doing spare ribs, I will take them to about 185°F but if you are doing loin back you can take them off at any time after 155°F Click into "According to Smoky" and read "Pork Ribs."
I start with the probe laying on top of the meat so I can monitor the temperature that the meat is getting. Near the end, I insert it into the meat.
