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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
