What you need
Baby Back Ribs
Smokey Joe's Honey Hog or Smokey Hot Rub
Your favorite sweet or spicy sauce
Olive oil or Yellow Mustard
100g unsalted butter
¼ cup light brown sugar
Apple or cherry Wood chips/pellets for the ideal flavor profile
what to do
Set up smoker for indirect cooking. Get smoker temperature to around 275f (135c) degrees
Remove baby back ribs from package and flip over.
Remove the membrane from the back side of the ribs.
Lightly coat with olive oil or mustard
Season front and back of ribs liberally Smokey Joes Honey Hog or Smokey Hot Rub.
Let sit at room temperature for around 45 minutes.
Place ribs in smoker (meat side up). Or you can use a v-rack as well.
I like to cook them for about 2 hours at 275 degrees until the internal temp is around 165.
Prepare foil boat, add butter, sauce, brown sugar, and a bit more seasoning. Place ribs meat side down in the mixture.
Wrap tight and place back on the smoker for 1 hour.
Remove from smoker, take out of the foil, brush ribs with sauce and put back on the grill for about a 1 hour (meat side up). This will allow the sauce to set/glaze.
A good indication is if you pick them up with tongs on the end the rack should bend.
Total cook time usually around 3 ½ - 4 hours.
I like my ribs to have a bit of bite..
