Asian Ribs

With summer in full swing, I am doing a lot of fast cooks. Not a lot of time, and these take ~ 1 hour, much like wings! I have done these a few times since seeing mossymo mossymo post. This time I went Asian.
I started by cutting a rack of St. Louis ribs and treating with SPOG.

I made up a sauce, plucking from a couple different recipes:
1/4 Cup Low Sodium Soy sauce
1/4 Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
1/8 Cup Rice Vinegar
3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1/2 tsp Grated Ginger
1/2 tsp Gochugaru
1/8 tsp White Pepper
Simmered while stirring to reduce and thicken ~ 3-5 mins.

Prepped the kettle same as I do for wings and threw on a chunk of Pecan.
I use the same 1/4 lid rotation every 5 minutes, again, same as wings.
Added another chunk of Pecan half way through ~ the 30 minute mark.
Sauced the first time at 50 mins, when they probed almost done, second at ~ 1 hour.

Here they are ready to come off the kettle.

Nice pullback and ready to devour.

Thank you Keith. I ate 4 ( chefs choice of course) and was done. But I'm a skinny little feller...

Thanks Rich, they do get a lot more flavor and smoke on them when they're cut before cooking. As an added bonus I save 5 hours over doing them whole. It turns ribs into a weeknight meal instead of a weekend meal to allot 6 hours of cook time.

Thank you Sven. Next time I will use cherry, since I don't have any pear wood. Cherry would make them even more colorful and go better with the Asian sauce, not that the pecan was bad....

Thank you Bear. This sauce would tack up good in the air fryer, as that's pretty much all I'm doing on the kettle.

Fast is the name of the game Ray! They have a nice bite through and the bone come clean.
Thanks, and fire up the kettle!

OMG....those are gorgeous. You now have me thinking seriously about doing this tomorrow. Tracy and I both really like Asian inspired food as well as pork ribs. This could be the perfect combo.

Thank you Robert, smok'em with cherry and they'll even look like the ribs from an Asian restaurant.
Asian flavors and ribs go together like chopsticks and rice.

Looks real good Moto....will have to give it a try.

Question-why the 1/4 lid turn?

Thanks Jeff. The sauce was good for winging it but could use a few tweaks.

Thanks Keith. The rotation is because the vent on the Weber lid makes what's under it get more heat and smoke. If you don't rotate it they get cooked unevenly at the high temps with all vents wide open.
