chocolate bar 

two strips of lemon zest

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon chile powder

2 teaspoons course salt

1 teaspoon lemon pepper

vegetable oil


chop all ingredients and place in food processor

blend well adding oil till it creates a nice thick paste


spread paste over both sides of ribs and set in fridge overnight


get smoker going with some pecan wood chunks and cook about three hours


foiled with some honey and butter and another coat of the chocolate paste

Wow, looks great!!  I've always liked chicken mole and never thought about, my mouth is wet and thinking.  It's amazing that so many people don't know about the wonders of chocolate and meat and when I mention it, they make a funny face, but once they taste it, they want more.  I sometimes add some peanut butter or ground up pumpkin seeds to the rub/paste.


BTW..........what's the rum for???not mentioned in the ingredients.................

Just wondered if the spice level was really high after the cook or did it mellow after the smoke process. It really looks great, nice job
