This recipe won 1st place in the 1996 Chilsolm Trail Roundup BBQ cookoff in Fort Worth, Texas. I usually use pork ribs but this works well for beef ribs too.. Baby backs really do not benefit from this cooking method.
- Prepare barbeque smoker with hickory or pecan wood.
- If you use briquets and woodchips, soak the chips in water.
- Rub ribs with dry rub and let set for one hour before starting to smoke.
- Smoke ribs slowly over indirect heat, 250 to 275 degrees for 2 1/2 hours.
- Wrap ribs in foil, cover meat generously with brown sugar and honey.
- Cook meat till rib bone twists and pulls freely out, about 2 1/2 to 3 more hours.
