First time Smoking Ribs with Pics

Discussion in 'Pork' started by cookmi1, May 8, 2014.

  1. Every weekend since I bought my smoker (Smokey Mountain Model # 3895GWLA) I have tried different things. First time was chicken, then pork center cut, Beef Round Round and now I smoked ribs. Holy Moly, the best that I have ever eaten. I made a rub from whatever I saw in the cabinet. Brown sugar, white sugar, onion and garlic powder, black pepper. Wrapped and they sat in the frig for 2 days in the rub. I used the 3-2-1 method to smoke these.

    Just put in the smoker.

    Pulled out to wrap in foil for step 2. I also made a sauce to apply at this stage. It was Pure Maple Syrup, Blue Agave Honey and Black Pepper. Brushed on and wrapped. Added Apple Juice in the foil also.

    My son wanted some BBQ sauce, so I let him add a thin layer on the ribs.

    All done and on the table.. The brown sugar really made a difference

    They were really good, and I thought they would have turned out to sweet, but they were just right. All 8 racks vanished very fast..

    Excellent job on those ribs, I can understand your statement about the best ribs!

    They look awesome!


    BTW the coating of brown sugar has been my pork secret for a long time. Light brown sugar and cayenne.............  I don't think I could even cook a butt, loin, tenderloin, etc. etc. etc., without it. It caramelizes and makes that pork just like an M&M, hard candy coating protecting the delicious inside. Great job!
