    Just what the title says.  I marinated a rack of St Louis ribs in Mojo (I used Badia brand) over night then smoked them 3-2-1 style and finished with a Mango Habanero recipe of Emeril Lagasse's that I picked up off Food Network a few years ago.

    Here's how it went:

    Mojo marinated over night.  Mojo is a blend of citrus juices and garlic

    Dusted with my rub for a little added flavor and color

    I did these in my Weber Kettle because it was just a single rack.  Here they are after about 3 hours.

    Put them in a foil pan, added some of the marinade and covered with foil.

    Just under 2 hours foiled and they was tender!

    Painted on some Mango Habanero Sauce.  Sweet and heat!

    Topped with some pickled red onion and a big ol serving of my famous black beans and rice

    Looks delish....nice job. For a minute there I thought it was beef ribs 'cause those exposed bones were so big.....healthy looking, meaty rack.....Willie

    Thanks Willie!  The wife and I were able to split the rack with the big bones because there was so much meat on them.   More often than not I buy my ribs at Costco in the cryovacs and they never disappoint.  I know that they are 3 racks to a pack so I always search for the heaviest packs.

    Thanks Dirt!  Always thinking of new twists on ribs and I love Cuban food so I brain stormed this one together.  All it needed was a mojito but we just welcomed the newest addition last week, so we weren't starting a mojito night just yet

    Congratulations on the new addition!

    Yeah we love Cuban food too. Pernil style pork is fantastic! I took this pernil recipe and used it on Tri Tip was so good!

    Oh heck yes. That's beautiful. For anyone who hasn't tried the mojo, get some! I use the Goya brand.

    I like the Goya brand better actually, but Badia is what the supermarket had.  Gonna give that Pernil a try
