Thanks for posting your question. I have some young nephews comming to visit in a couple of weeks. I hadn't thought about "Kid Friendly 'Q".

I'll be watching this post for some ideas.

Sorry I can't give you a recipe.

Just use a basic rub and cut back on the black pepper and cayanne pepper. Here is a great place to start:


1 C brown sugar

1/2 C paprika

1/4 C granulated garlic

2 Tbsp. Kosher salt

2 Tbsp. fresh cracked pepper (adjust down for kids)

1/4 tsp. cayanne powder (omit for kids)


That will work on most everything, and you can adjust the pepper and cayanne as needed to suit your family's tastes. I'm lucky in that my kids like a little bit of spice in my rub, as long as it is balaced with a bit of sweet.

See post #3 on this thread. It has a lot of flavor but isn't spicy or hot at all,  just a good all around flavor.

I use a simple rub just  seasoned salt, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper.Not to over powering and my nieces and nephews love it.Are you planning on using a sauce?

 Thanks Dave...I just saw this post. Kids love this stuff too!...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



2T Vinegar, to make it Tangy


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. Simmer the Juice over med/low heat to reduce to a saucy thickness. Glaze the Ribs for presentation or service.
