Good luck!!!

Ribs should never fall off the bone. You should be able to make a clean bite to the bone and be left with a nice clean half circle missing from the meat. Personally, I find mesquite a little too aggressive for most long smoked items. I prefer a mix of oak and hickory or a fruit wood (Apple, Cherry, Peach). As long as you don't over smoke, any wood can work unless you use something resinous like pine/poplar/fir or outright poisonous like pressure treated wood . The most important ingredient is LOVE! Put enough in and great results will always follow.

Also, from what I know (which admittedly is limited), real Texas BBQ isn't pork and never ever has a sauce.
The RULES, follow them and prosper!
