Rib experiment

Oven cooked, too late to fire up the smoker.

Took some babybacks and an Old El Paso taco seasoning kit.

Brushed the ribs with the taco sauce, then rubbed with the taco seasoning packet and some coarse ground black pepper.

In the oven at 225 until done.
We'll see if i ruined a rack or not.

Probably going to be better than you think.

One of the better racks of ribs I've had were done in an oven.The only smoke flavor really only came from a tsp of smoked paprika.The sauce was made of RC cola, Melindas habenero ketchup and a splash of JD,simmered.

Look forward to your thoughts on these! But betting on not being bad

The taco sauce is not high in sugars is it? If so, they might darken easier. And if there is vinegar in the mix, that might be a good thing.

There are several brands of Liquid Smoke that can come in handy for projects like that!

So, they weren't bad at all. could have used more seasoning. i only used half of the packet.

i might try them again, but next time come up with a spicy sauce.

Not a total failure anyway

It sure sounded like a good idea!
I think I would have just ran my smoker at a higher temp.
I have done ribs in a couple of hours at 325.
Not as smokey, but done on time.
