Baby Back Ribs are a summer staple and very easy to make. You’ll think of going into competition with this recipe. Try the recipe for BBQ sauce for dipping or mop it on, which ever way, make this next time your grilling.
4 lbs baby back Ribs rinsed and dried
1/2 cup Harvest Eating Low n Slow BBQ Rub or your favorite rub
1 recipe BBQ sauce
1. Place each rack of ribs onto a large piece of foil.
2. Sprinkle rack with spice rub on top side sides, should be heavily coated
3. Wrap each rib in the foil and refrigerate for 3-12 hours.
4. Remove from refrigerator and allow racks to come to room temperature.
5. Place the ribs on a preheated smoker set at low or about 250 degrees , add some of your favorite smoke wood, I love white oak!. Make sure your heat is evenly distributed. Cook the ribs low and slow for 3-4 using a tin foil drip pan to catch and drippings. When the rib ends start sticking out and the rack when picked up in the middle breaks, there done.
8. Coat with BBQ sauce (optional) and more rub, place face down and let heat increase, leave on for 15 minutes being careful not to burn, then serve.
Chef’s Notes: I can’t stress how important it is to NOT cook these over the blazing heat…turn the smoker way down to 250. If you overheat and they cook fast, burn and they will not be tender.[/private]
