My second attempt at ribs

Discussion in 'Pork' started by rsetina, Feb 26, 2012.

  1. I bought a used Traeger Grill, it's basicly still new, from my brother in law and tried smoking some pork ribs yesterday. They turned out pretty well but I used a method of par boiling the ribs in pepsi before putting them on the grill. That was fine until tonight.

    Today I used the 2, 2, 1 method and what a difference. The smoking process turned out better and they came off the bone easily but didn't fall off. They were perfect. My niece's husband doesn't like pork ribs. He's had ribs from Ribs USA in Burbank CA and doesn't like those either and I've had them, and they are good. I shared mine with him and my niece last night and today and he told me they were the best he's ever had. Thanks for the tips here on the forum. I'll be learning alot here.

    Looking great.

    A sliced shot would be nice.

    If they taste as good as they look, I don't worry a whit about a smoke ring?

    Good luck and good smoking.

    If ya ask me the ONLY way to do ribs is the 3-2-1 or the 2-2-1.
