post #1 of 7

Hello All,

I have been smoking meat for about 7 months now and I have not yet smoked any ribs.  Can you guys give me instructions on how to do so.  From smoker and food prep, cooking temp, wood type, cooking time, seasoning etc.  All suggestions would be much apreciated. Thank a lot!......Smoke ON!!!

As Craig would say, visit the handy dandy search tool!!!

 

Anyway, I smoke my ribs at or about 215*-235*, rub with yellow mustard and a rub to your liking and I use lump and hickory!!! BBY's 5 hours (2-2-1) w/foil !!! Spares 6 hours for foil or so (3-1.5-1.5) w/foil or so!!! for fall off the bone or so.

 

Some smokers do not foil for a slight tug!!!

 

Good Luck, RP

Search the 3-2-1 method, this is the best way to start.

 

It's 3-2-1 for spares & 2-2-1 for baby backs.

 

It simply means smoke at 225 for 3 hours, then 2 hours wrapped in foil w/ some liquid still at 225, and the last hour out of the foil & back on the grate, again still at 225. 

 

The last half hour you may want to mop with BBQ sauce.

 

Hope this helps & don't forget the Q-view.

Welcome...This is the Recipe I use during the Foiling time of the 3-2-1 procedure. If you like sweet ribs use it as-is for a little more Tang add 2Tbs Vinegar...JJ

 

Foiling Juice

 

For each Rack of Ribs Combine:

 

1T Pork Rub, yours

1/2 Stick Butter

1/2C Cane Syrup... Dark Corn Syrup...or Honey

1/4C Apple Cider...or Juice

1T Molasses

 

Simmer 5-10 minutes until syrupy consistency.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes, pour over foiled Ribs and

run your 2 hour phase of 3-2-1. For the last phase return

the ribs to the smoker BUT reserve any Juice remaining

in the Foil. Glaze the Ribs for presentation or service.

 

I was AMAZED...NO ADDITIONAL SAUCES NEEDED!!! BEST RIBS I EVER ATE!!! UPDATE...I just used this on a BUTT...AWSOME!!!!

My question is what do you want from your ribs.  Do you want fall off the bone or pull off the bone?  Sweet or savory?  Wet or dry ribs?  Sauced or glazed?
