Pork Loin Riblets

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

It's been a while since I've had a chance to fire up my smoker, but I was at the grocery store today and picked up a 10lb box of Pork Loin Riblets for $1.49.  Yes, $1.49.  After I got home I realized how cheap they were and went back to get more, but they were all marked $14.90.


So I have a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker and planning using some hickory with a couple pieces of charcoal mixed in.  I typically just give the meats I smoke a dry rub.  Any tips as far as temps, times, foil etc on these?

$1.49  lol, that's a good price!

Not sure what a riblet is so I can't really help with any smoking suggestions,

Do ya have a pic of one?

If it's cut from the loin it's going to be pretty lean. How about wrapping them in bacon?

The riblet is basically the trimmings from spareribs. Small flat bones. These have a nice layer of fat on one side.


I wanted to make some for lunch today so I put a thin layer of mustard on them along with some rub. Gonna put them in the smoker around 200-220. Will post pics when done.
