We had some nice weather in central Indiana the last few days and I couldn't wait to get out the Weber. First cook was wings but I'll touch on that later.
I had some Baby Backs thawed but wanted to try something more yesterday. I had a package of trimmings from my last batch of bacon and wanted to do something with it.
I decided to cut into small strips and use the same rub and sauce as the ribs.

They went on with the ribs indirect with some Hickory chunks.

After a couple of hours everything got foiled and cooked for another hour and a half or so. The belly fingers got sauced in the foil. The ribs just got a spritz of water.

After un-foiling and saucing the ribs I pulled the belly fingers off. They were done.

The ribs only needed another half hour or so. All done. IMG_3648.jpg IMG_3649.jpg

Sharing recipes for folks who like that (I do).

My pork rub:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Paprika
1/2 tbsp no-sodium salt substitute
2 tbsp course black pepper
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp onion powder

My BBQ sauce:
1 cup cider vinegar
2 cups Heinz "No Salt Added" ketchup
1-1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp no-sodium salt substitute
1 tsp coarse black pepper
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp ground horseradish
1 tsp crushed red pepper

Pineapple Turmeric glaze (for the wings):
1/2 cup pineapple juice (squeeze the juice from one of those little cans of chunks and you get almost exactly 1/2 cup of juice)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup rice vinegar
3 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
Bring to a simmer and go 'til it's reduced. About 15 minutes. Let cool.

Sorry for the lengthy post, but I"m bored today. Although March can be a Bitch, Spring's almost just around the corner boys and girls....

Thank you!
It's not actually my recipe. Got it from the net somewhere and it was meant for pork chops. I tried it on wings and that's our go-to now. Kinda burnt out on hot wings....
