Smoking some BB ribs

Discussion in 'Pork' started by rsnovi, Sep 1, 2014.

  1. Having my parents over and going to do some BB ribs. Thinking of going with hickory and apple wood. Simple chili powder and paprika rub.

    Still finishing the thaw process.

  2. Don't forget to add some kind of sugar to your rub. It helps giving a nice bit of bark to the ribs.  Some salt and pepper, and a touch of cayenne wouldn't hurt either.  There are loads of great rub recipes on this site. 
  3. It should be good[​IMG].

    Happy smoken.

  4. Check. Just rubbed them down with:

    Brown sugar
    Chili powder
    Smoked paprika
    Garlic powder

    Plan to start smoking in 2 hours at noon. Last time I went 250 for four hours and I thought they were slightly overdone. I am going to try 225 for four hours.
  5. I forgot to get pictures before it was chowed on. I am much happier with smoking at 225 degrees for around 4 hours.

    I threw some Johnsonville brats on toward the end and those turned out good. My first time doing anything with sausage. They cooked quite fast.

    Novi , I smoke my Ribs 'sans' foil and at the end I put 1 portion of 'Turbinato' Sugar(appox.30min. before removing them, ). I also leave the lid closed and monitor Smoker Temp. at 225*F.

    You said BB's , so as a point of reference , check then in 4.5hrs. , then add sugar  .  Won't have a chance to burn the sugar.

    Have fun and . . .
