DIRECTIONS

  • Mix rub ingredients and store in air tight container. Recommend making a triple batch so you'll have some for later.
  • Remove membrane from bone side of ribs. Rub ribs generously with rub, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate over night.
  • Remove wrap from ribs and bring to room temperature. Re-season with rub.
  • Bring grill/smoker up to around 200 degrees F. Using indirect heat, smoke ribs for 5-7 hours. Turn and baste with mop every hour.
  • For the finishing sauce, combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for one hour.
  • For the smoke, use apple wood chips soaked in water. Keep the temperature as close to 200 as possible.
  • Apply finishing sauce during the last hour--careful not to burn. Ribs are done when about 3/8 inch of bones are exposed and the rib bones come loose from the meat when twisted.
  • Remove from heat, re-season with rub mixture, and let sit for at least 30 min prior to cutting into 2-rib portions.
