My Babies

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Sunday turned out some of my best ribs yet. I used a new rub:

2 lb. Sugar
8 oz Seasoned salt
2 oz paprika
2 oz chili powder
2 oz black pepper
1/2 oz garlic salt
1/2 oz onion powder
1 oz cumin

This is for bulk, so I cut it down considerably. This is actually Disney's rub from the Flame Tree at Animal Kingdom. Their ribs are o.k. but I did like the rub.

I cooked these on my Great Outdoors gas smoker. I varied the 3-2-1 down to 2-2-1/2. After 2 hours of smoke, I put on a thin coat of bbq sauce and drizzled them with honey. I then wrapped them up for the next 2 hours. After 2 hours wrapped, I opened them up and applied another thin coat of sauce and let them go about 30 more minutes. I forgot to get the apple cider, so I just let them go. I was worried. I usually spray them down a few times. But hey, they turned out moist and delicious. Nothing left but perfectly clean bones.

Re: My Babies

Those are some fine looking ribs. I'm going to have to add your rub recipe to the "Must try" pile. I know my wife will like it as it doesn't call for any red pepper.

Thanks everyone. I struggled with ribs for a long time. They are my favorite food in the world, but I always had trouble cooking them. Now, I get good results and everyone loves them. I told my wife they looked so good, I hated to eat them. She really liked the rub and usually she complains about the rub being too strong. I think I'll stick with this one for a while.

Re: My Babies

Re: My Babies

I used a digital scale and sized it down to a 1/4 of the original recipe. I didn't convert over to regular measurements, but when I make another batch, I will try.

Re: My Babies

gortiz, For less that $20.00 you can pick up an inexpensive digital scale at Wally's World. It will weight in lbs. and ounces or in metric upto 5 lbs.

I find it easier to make large batches of rubs and use what I need and then vacuum seal the rest for later use.

No kitchen is complete without a digital scale. Especially if you do any baking.

Some of my friends had quit asking for my bread/roll recipes because things are measured by weight instead of volume. Guess what they got for Christmas? :P

two questions, I heard that if you apply the bbq to quick you can burn the ribs with the sugar, and it looks like you did it 1/2 way? Don't get me wrong your pic is incredible. Also, is spraying during the process a little overated then since you didn't even do this time around?

Re: My Babies

This is the only time that I have not sprayed the ribs. In this case it didn't make a difference. They were not dry at all. I had them wrapped for 2 hours with bbq sauce and then another 20-30 minutes with another coat unwrapped. They didn't burn. Sometimes I don't add any more sauce, just serve it at the table. Sometimes, I use no sauce at all. Just depends on my mood.
