St. Louis Ribs w/ Q-View

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Good day fellow smoke enthusiasts,


Just bought an A-Maze-N 12" tube smoker, and am trying out my first smoke with it today! I've decided to go with a big ol' rack of St. Louis ribs. My hope is to have these babies as tender and juicy as a 20 year old girl's you-know-what after she's gone a month without any activity. Okay, perhaps that was going a little far, but that's how excited I am right now!


Anyways, I'll be updating y'all as the hours go on and the ribs are smoking away. In the meantime, I'll give you guys a breakdown of my rub, with some pre-smoke pictures!


Big Paul's Rib Rub (Makes enough for 2 racks of ribs):


1 Cup - Dark Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup - Paprika

2-1/2 TBS - Course Black Pepper

1-1/2 tsp - Chili Powder

1-1/2 TBS - Garlic Powder

1-1/2 TBS - Onion Powder

1 tsp - Cayenne Pepper

2 TBS - Course Kosher Salt


Note: It is imperative that you use course ground pepper and salt in order to achieve the optimal texture!


So, last night I removed the membrane from the ribs, and set them up boney side-up. Then I lathered these babies up with some spicy brown mustard like I was rubbing lotion on a hot babe at the beach. Then sprinkled on the rub on there and let it sit for about 10 mins till the rub was damp. Then I gently flipped the rack over and repeated this step. Once the rub was damp, I wrapped the rack up with foil, and let it sit in the fridge overnight.


Here it is, two 5lb racks that could rival those of Carmen Electra:



Here's about what they looked like right before wrapping them to soak in those flavors overnight:



And here they are now, ready to get smoked like a fat bong on a saturday afternoon:



I'll post some pics in a little while once these bad boys have had a chance to smoke for a bit

Oh yeah, for those of you wondering I'm using a MES30 for my smoker. I'm loading the wood chip tray with maple chips, and filled the tube smoker with a mix of hickory and cherry pellets.

Alright everyone, first update. About 2.5 hours into the smoke, here's the ribs. I'm going to wrap them in a sprayed foil pretty soon. Doing the 3-2-1 method because the lady likes them fall off the bone.

Due to the overwhelming response, I felt the need to post the finished product (albeit a bit delayed). They were a huge hit!

Haha sorry for all the vulgarity. Was trying a little too hard to be humorous I suppose. Also, Just want to let the record show that I'm 27 so referencing a 20 year old's unmentionables is slightly less creepy when put into that context (I'm assuming you thought I was like 40 or something).


I'll be a little less offensive on my future postings.
