PERFECTLY SMOKED BABY BACK RIBS

Smoking baby back ribs can be a little tricky as they tend to get overcooked quickly, but using your meat thermometer will ensure you wind up with perfect baby back ribs.

Servers:

8-10

Preparation Time: 

6-12 hours

Estimated Smoke Time: 

4-5 hours

Smoke Temp: 

225°F

Try these wood chips: 

Pecan, hickory, or cherry

Ingredients: 

  • 3 (3 lb.) slabs pork baby back ribs, trimmed
  • 2 cups Basic Barbecue Rub
  • 1⁄4 cup peanut oil
  • 2 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 cup apple juice

Preparation:

2 Generously brush the ribs with peanut oil.

3 Generously brush the ribs with peanut oil.

4 Next, rub the ribs with the Basic Barbecue Rub. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

5 Preheat the smoker to 225°F.

6 Allow the ribs to come to room temperature for 30 minutes before smoking

Smoking:

Set the ribs directly on the smoker grate, bone side down.

2Use the water pan for extra moist ribs.

3 Smoke the ribs for 1 1⁄2 hours. Check occasionally to prevent the edges from getting charred.

4 Remove the ribs from the smoker and set each rack, meat side down, in each foil packet.

5 Wrap the ribs tightly with 2 Tbs apple juice in each foil packet and return to the smoker. Smoke for another 2 hours, still bone side down.

6 After 2 hours, remove them from the smoker and uncover. Discard the liquid together with the foil.

7 Brush 1-2 coats of the barbecue sauce onto the ribs.

8 Smoke the ribs for another 30-45 min, or until the sauce is set and the internal temperature reaches 185°F.

9 Once done, remove from the smoker and let them rest for 10- 15 minutes before carving.

10 Upon serving, cut in-between bone to separate the ribs and serve with the remaining barbecue sauce.
