    Hello All,

    I noticed a bunch of people posted things they smoked for father's day etc. So while my Dad was out of town that weekend I wanted to do the same for him. So last weekend i smoked him some baby back ribs (his favorite). I had pretty much my smoked rib recipes down but i wanted to do something different because i thought my ribs were a little one note (really sweet). My wife found a new rub recipe in a magazine and i thought I would try it.

    Sugar (recipe called for brown i use Turbinado)

    Kosher salt

    Black Pepper 


    Garlic Powder





    (For exact recipe PM me)

    after adding some mustard and then adding the rub 

    I let sit in the fridge for 4-5 hours then I added to the smoker with some hickory and cherry smoke....


    I let them smoke on the WSM 22.5 for 2:20 @ 275 Degrees then i foil the ribs with some squeeze butter, maple powder, agave amber nectar, and a splash of apple cider vinegar in triple wrapped foil. I let them cook like this on the smoker for about 1:50 and come out very tender


    I was concerned that i over cooked them because when i transferred them out of the foil onto a pan for saucing i accidentally tore one in half with my tongs. Although when we ate them the next day they pulled cleanly from the bone without falling apart so i think i hit it dead on.

    I put them on a pan and took my vertical silicone mop and put sauce all over them (sweet baby rays original) in a thin layer and put them in the oven for 25 minutes at 275 degrees. i would have gone another 20 setting up the sauce but i figure the sauce also sets overnight and then again on the reheat. if you are going to eat them right away i recommend another 15-20 minutes in the final step.

    So that is how they looked when they were done. I did modified 2-2-1 baby backs. trying a new rub and some different foiling method. My Dad said those were the best ribs i ever made for him. They did seem to have a good depth of flavor but plenty of sweet. They were enjoyed by everyone who had some. 

    thanks for looking and Happy Smoking!
