Ok I must admit I like the flavor but as constructive critisim I think we both could work on getting the brine flavor a little deeper in the ribs... Maybe a little more time? I brine and smoke a turkey for Thanksgiving and I brine it for almost 40 hours, I think that maybe a bit much for ribs but additional time I think would help. The flavor was great and moist but closer to the bone the flavors were light. Thanks for the start... I will modify and continue using it.
This is a great method to cook ribs! It left them tender, juicy, and delicious, with the smoke flavor penetrating the meat. I replaced the smoking chips throughout the process to ensure a good flavor. Cooking the entire process with low heat in smoke is a superior method and you have a fabulous recipe that produces ribs to die for! Thanks, Steve!
I had never heard of Brining ribs before so I had to try this one. The ribs came out just perfectly! Rich wonderful flavor. I used my Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker for these...about 260 degrees for 4 hours turning only once in the process so as to keep the temperature constant. Used dry Hickory Chunks over Briquetts. I made a Bar-B-Que sauce but no one used it! The meat was too good to drown out with sauce.
We just recently got a smoker, this is the first recipe we tried. These ribs are fantastic!! I didn't plan far enough ahead of time, so I soaked the ribs in the brine for one hour and allowed to marinate with the herb mixture for only one hour. I completely forgot to brush/serve with BBQ sauce, but they were delicious without. Thanks for the great recipe! =]
We loved our ribs cooked this way. Great flavored and couldn't be better!
This is an awesome recipe. We gad guests over than wont eat ribs they would not put them down Having a BBQ for Christmas feeding 50 cant wait
I was looking for a good baby back rib recipe and this is it. I've made these a few times now and everyone loves them. Nobody wants me to try anything else, they always want these. I follow the recipe exactly. I alway make up sauce to go with them but everyone likes them as is. Great recipe, thanks for posting.
By Hartman, I've used this recipe multiple times and it turns out great every time. I do use a little less salt and more sugar in the brine. I make a double recipe of the rub to use save cost on the fresh herbs. It stores nicely in the refrigerator. Everyone who has eaten this recipe loves it!
Great Ribs. I don't usually brine my ribs so this was new for me. Thet were loved by all. Thank you
I've been looking for the perfect BBQ Baby Back Ribs recipe & this is definately NOT it! Was VERY disappointed...the ribs should brine for at least 24 hours & the so-called "rub" was ghastly! Won't be doing this one again...SORRY!
