Maple Glazed Ribs

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 

A local supermarket had a great buy on side ribs. They were a little fatty for my taste but I still bought 3 packages due to the low price.

 

 

 

I wanted to put a bit of maple sweetness on the ribs. In the past, I have put maple syrup in various solutions on at the end. I found it was too maple and thought I would try and use a little less this time. I mixed it with a regular barbecue sauce for a little savoury taste.

 

I peeled the sliverskin off the back with a paper towel.

 

 

I gave it a rub with Louisiana Grills Rib Rub.

 

 

I preheated the pellet smoker to 210 F with hickory pellets and put a probe from my Thermoworks remote thermometer in the thickest part of the meat. I fired it in the smoker and let it go.

 

 

I gave it a spray with apple juice every hour to one and a half hour.

 

 

After 5 hours, the internal temperature of the ribs got to my desired 195 F. I brushed them with a glaze made of 2 parts maple syrup and one part barbecue sauce. I used my homemade sauce but bottled would be fine. I cooked for 30 more minutes.

 

 

I took the ribs in to sit and set up while I made some Mountain Toast on my propane grill.

 

 

 

I cut them up and served them with a nice salad and the Mountain Toast.

 

 

 

 

These tasted great and had a wonderful texture. It had a nice maple taste but the nice hit of bbq sauce. The meat was not fall of the bone, it was bite off the bone. I have tried to explain that to people before so I took a picture of what it looks like. You take a bite and the meat pulls clean from the bone but the rest of the meat stays on the bone leaving the shape of your bite.

 

 

I really prefer not foiling my ribs and She Who Must Be Obeyed never cared for fall off the bone so life is good!

I understand where they are coming from. When I first started smoking, I loved the 3-2-1 method and the fall from the bone meat. Then I tried unfoiled and converted. Thanks for the kind words.

Har! I have to admit, I like them both ways, too. However this way pleases She Who Must Be Obeyed and I am a coward.
