My Hubby is the greatest BBQ master of all time! Everything he makes is to die for! He came up with this recipe the other night and they ended up being the best ribs I have ever consumed! The perfect combination of smoke, BBQ, and good ol’ summertime flavor! The best thing?? They are allergy friendly as well!! Hope you enjoy them as much as we did. 🙂
Rib recipe courtesy of My Hubby:
**Will require a smoker **
-1 slab of St. Louis pork ribs
3 to 4 Tbsp. of any BBQ rub (pick your favorite)
2 Tbsp. of yellow mustard
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vingegar
1/4 cup of quality honey (preferably in the raw)
1/2 cup BBQ sauce (optional)
1/2 cube (4 Tbsp.) of margarine
1.) Set smoker to 250 degrees and let it begin heating up while you get the ribs ready.
2.) Open the package of ribs and rinse off any juices from inside the bag that may residing on meat.
3.) Pat dry with a paper towel and remove membrane.
4.) Cover both sides of ribs with yellow mustard and apply BBQ rub generously, covering both sides and making sure to get all the edges.
5.) Place ribs in smoker for 1 hour, then increase the temperature to 300 degrees and smoke for another hour.
6.) Remove ribs and set on a large sheet of tin foil meat side down.
7.) Drizzle honey across the ribs and apply brown sugar to the top as well. You can increase or decrease the amount you use depending on your desired sweetness.
8.) Next add the apple cider vinegar atop the ribs. (The brown sugar will absorb the vinegar and give a wet sand like texture)
9.) Add the butter atop the center of the rack of ribs.
10.) Wrap the ribs tightly and be sure to fold all seems upward, as too keep all the juices in.
11.) Put the ribs back on the smoker and cook an additional 1 1/2 to 2 more hours. (You will know when its done when the ribs bend easily)
Optional (but keep reading :))
12.)If you stop right here the ribs are delicious as is however, if you want to take it a step further you can take the ribs off the smoker (keep them wrapped tightly) and crank the heat up to 400 degrees.
13.) Remove the ribs from the foil and place on the hot grill.
14.) Brush on and glaze both sides with your favorite BBQ sauce.
15.) Keep a close eye on the ribs while glazing them so the sugar does not burn because it can easily.
16.) Transfer to plate and set on the dinner table. It takes some time but boy is it worth it!
