    So I am going to smoke some Baby Back Ribs this weekend and Iam looking for advice. 


    and Method of smoking?

    I did a Turkey last weekend and it came out great thanks to this forum and now I seek advice from the smoking gurus. 

    I will be uploading Q-View Pics when I start....

    All help is welcome

    Looks like this method is the best....reading from another thread here:

    "First number is the number of hours ribs are place in the smoker just flat on the racks.

    Second number is number of hours ribs are cooked wrapped in foil (usually still in the smoker)

    Third number is the number of hours ribs are cooked back on the racks out of the foil (to firm them up a bit). This is also when you would sauce the ribs if you are going to put sauce on them during the cooking process.

    2-2-1 is generally used for baby back ribs, and 3-2-1 for spare ribs. If the ribs are to tender and fall apart you can cut back the 2nd number 15 minutes at a time till you get the consistancy you want."

    Any Rub suggestions?

    Hope this is not too late. This is my Rub for Pork and the Foiling juice is a must...JJ

    Try this... It is Mild and compliments different style sauces well...If you want spicier increase Blk Pepper to 1T and add 1T Wht Pepper and 1T Mustard powder. The Foiling Juice, at the bottom, makes a Rib Glaze at the end. You can add 1/4C Ketchup, 2T Cider Vinegar and 2T Mustard to make a more traditional BBQ Sauce....

    Mild Bubba Q Rub

    1/2C Sugar in the Raw (Turbinado)

    2T Sweet Paprika (Hungarian)

    1T Kosher Salt

    1T Chili Powder (contains some Cumin and Oregano) Ancho Chile is same without cumin, oregano etc.

    1T Granulated Garlic

    1T Granulated Onion

    1tsp Black Pepper, more if you like

    1/2tsp Grnd Allspice

    Cayenne or Chipotle Pwd to taste, start with 1/2tsp and go from there.
