Pepper Crusted Babyback Ribs

Discussion in 'Pork' started by normonster, Mar 18, 2019.

  1. Hi All!

    I am a sauce fanatic! I admit it. Finding red peppers around here is not an easy challenge, but I was lucky enough to have a coworker donate some fresh from the garden. I had my way with those and made the sauce below....but what was to become of the leftover pepper mash?






    Here is the leftover pepper mash. It is a beautiful thing.


    I just couldn't throw it out so I decided to dry it for a few days and then use it as a rub. I'm glad I did because I have a new recipe!!








    That bark was so tasty. Perfectly crisp and not too hot. The oak added just the right smoke flavor. I was very pleased!

    Thank you for looking!

    If you have a dehydrator line the tray with cheese cloth spread the mash over it then dry.

    I use this method then grind the dried peppers into powder in the Ninja bullet.

  9. Thank you @chilerelleno, @jaxgatorz, @Holly2015, @JC in GB, @kit s, @SmokinAl and @tag0401!

    I’m going to do that one again for sure, but first I guess I’ll have to grow my own peppers.

    I forgot to mention, this was the first time I’ve done ribs straight from the freezer. Getting the rub to stick was a challenge. I thought for sure it would all fall off in the wrap, but I was careful, and it actually adhered pretty well. I’ll still opt for thawed though, whenever possible.
