First time Back Ribs with Q-view

Discussion in 'Pork' started by oosickness, Nov 18, 2011.

  1. So i wanted to try to smoke some back ribs for the first time. iv tryed to slow cook them before on a gas grill, they were edible but i felt i could do much better on my new MES30. So i went down to Costco after work and got 3 racks of back ribs in a vacume pack.

    i washed them down and used a rub i found on here from Mnola917 adn let them set over night. i took off work a little early the next day becuse the excitment was killing me and i just had to get home and cook these puppys up.

    I used a modified version of the 2-2-1 method because i like a little more bite to my meat, so it ended being more like 2-1.4-.30 with the last 30 mins on the gas grill on high with a liberal brushing of Sweet baby rays


    3/8 cup Paprika
    3 TBSP Brown Sugar
    3/8 Cup Dry Mustard Powder
    1 1/2 TSP Garlic Powder
    1 1/2 TSP Celery Seed
    1 1/2 TSP Sea Salt or Non-Iodized Salt
    1 1/2 TSP Ground Thyme
    1 1/2 TSP Ground Marjoram
    1 1/2 TSP Coriander
    3/4 TSP Cayenne
    2 Cups Cane Sugar, or Granulated Sugar
    1/2 Cup Seasoned Salt
    1 TSP Ground Allspice
    1/2 TSP Ground Ginger
    1/4 TSP Ground Cloves

    It makes about 3.5 cups. If you want a spicy variation (which I highly recommend) you can add:

    2 TBSP Black Pepper
    1 TBSP Cayenne
    1 TBSP Dried Jalapeno Powder


    i tryed the tile fix because this was my first smoke that lasted more than and hour 1/2


     I got a bit busy and was unable to take any pictures of the meat in the smoker..sorry folks


    Dont mind my sloppy mess of sause and the apple juice!







     i have to say, even though these were the first ribs i have ever slow cooked all i can say is omg i need more!

    Thanks for all the help guys i coulds have done it with out this forum!
