Last minute baby backs!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I decided at the last minute that I should smoke some baby backs for this evening. I pulled them from the freezer and thawed quickly in some water. I rubbed them down with a small amount of honey mustard then some jalapeno jelly and then rubbed them down with some Sweet-Heat Rib Rub I found at a farmers market.


I plan to fire up the grill around 1230, start smoking at 1 with some apple wood chunks along with the hickory charcoal I have for 2 hours, then wrap in foil for about another hour then let sit until my wife gets home from work and we can eat!

Looks nice. Are they for the Broncos game?

No sir...I actually don't watch sports at all. Didn't even know they were playing.


I also have some wild hog jalapeno/cheese smoked sausage and wild hog hot links to throw on later!

3 hours for BB's is a little bit short on time, unless your running your grill around 300+ degrees.


Let us know how they turn out.

I was hoping for between 225-250, but the grill has been staying around 300 no matter what I do! It may be a good thing from what you are saying!

Foiled at about the 3 hour mark with an IT of 162...

I pulled the ribs off the smoker with an IT of about 193 which was about 3 hours and 20 minutes into it. They sat for about an hour. Juicy and perfect! My wife and daughter are sucking on the bare bones!

That's great!


I'm glad they turned out well for you!


When the family is happy then it's a big success!


Nice job!

That sounds just about perfect! Glad it worked out. That last step, the hour rest, is on of the most important parts.

Righteous ribs.
