    Thanks for posting your question. I have some young nephews comming to visit in a couple of weeks. I hadn't thought about "Kid Friendly 'Q".

    I'll be watching this post for some ideas.

    Sorry I can't give you a recipe.

    Just use a basic rub and cut back on the black pepper and cayanne pepper. Here is a great place to start:

    1 C brown sugar

    1/2 C paprika

    1/4 C granulated garlic

    2 Tbsp. Kosher salt

    2 Tbsp. fresh cracked pepper (adjust down for kids)

    1/4 tsp. cayanne powder (omit for kids)

    That will work on most everything, and you can adjust the pepper and cayanne as needed to suit your family's tastes. I'm lucky in that my kids like a little bit of spice in my rub, as long as it is balaced with a bit of sweet.

    This is my rib rub, just omit the cayenne if you want, alyhough my BIL's grandson has no problem with it, he's been eating my ribs since he was 3.

    1/2 cup of turbinado sugar

    1/4 cup of Hungarian paprika

    1/4 cup of salt free chili powder

    2 TBS of granulated garlic

    2 TBS of ground black pepper

    2TBS of cinnamon

    1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  7. I use a simple rub just  seasoned salt, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper.Not to over powering and my nieces and nephews love it.Are you planning on using a sauce?

     Thanks Dave...I just saw this post. Kids love this stuff too!...JJ

    Foiling Juice

    For each Rack of Ribs Combine:

    1T Pork Rub, yours

    1/2 Stick Butter

    1/2C Cane Syrup... Dark Corn Syrup...or Honey

    1/4C Apple Cider...or Juice

    1T Molasses


    2T Vinegar, to make it Tangy

    Simmer 5-10 minutes until syrupy consistency.

    Allow to cool for 5 minutes, pour over foiled Ribs and

    run your 2 hour phase of 3-2-1. For the last phase return

    the ribs to the smoker BUT reserve any Juice remaining

    in the Foil. Simmer the Juice over med/low heat to reduce to a saucy thickness. Glaze the Ribs for presentation or service.
  9. Yes used Apple or Maple rub from John Henry foods, in the web page it shows qty of 10lb. just call then and they will sell you 1 or 2 lbs of any of there rubs.    my wife and daugther love both of those rubs that I mention.They are sweet and flavorfull
