The wife picked up some pork spare ribs for the weekend and last minute she suggested we do them Korean style

so salted them up in prep for some rub.

Then I lightly brushed them with dijon

They were then dusted with a new rub mixture I’m trying out as a compliment to sauces.

the rub:
Light coat salt & Dijon mustard
1/2c sugar
3 Tbs garlic
2 Tbs Onion, lemon Pepper
1 Tbs polo, Cajun
4 Tbs smoked paprika

On they went at 235 the Memphis pellet.

Thanks chiler! The Korean flare sure added to the pork! My wife made a peanut coconut Vinaigrette and it went really well with the fresh fruits!

A++ for the post and presentation. Beautiful food that I’m sure was delicious . The salad and noodles with the ribs is classic and elegant.

thanks jcam! I have to say it’s nice to finally have some time to get life back to a little more normal after the move and start creating in the kitchen again.

this was my wife’s chicken tortilla soup that I had for lunch today right before I put the ribs on the smoker. So in a way the soup is/was the inspiration for the presentation for tonight’s dinner. PS. The tomato’s are from the garden that the previous owner had planted before we bought the house.

Thanks Al! I have to say my wife gets credit for the idea, I just did the smoking and she did the rest!

Excellent meal and pics!

Thanks Jim! Much appreciated!

Thanks XR! The glass noodles are really cool when you cook them. They come out of the water clear as glass and then they absorb the seasonings as they are sauteed. They go really good with sweet and spicy BBQ sauce!

Many thanks SFL! It is a really good combination for sure! The grated apples in the sauce really add a nice texture and flavor!
