A great rib recipe using a dry rub and a smoking technique that can be used on any regular BBQ grill
Prep Time: 15minutes
Cook Time: 2hours
Total Time: 2hours15minutes
2racks of pork back ribs
2cupswood chips, soaked in water
1tspcayenne pepperoptional for those wanting them hot!
Peel the membrane off the back of the ribs. Wash them and dry them with a paper towel.
Mix the ingredients for the rub together. Take a handful of the rub and rub it on one side of the ribs. Flip them and rub it on the back of the ribs. Be generous as there should be rub that would fall off if you tipped the ribs.
You do not want ribs to cook over a direct flame or else they would burn and be too tough. Therefore you need to setup your barbecue for indirect grilling. To do this place a metal pan or tray under the grill where the ribs will cook. Fill the pan 3/4 full of water. The water helps the ribs 'slow cook' and keeps the heat down. How to make a smoker pouch: Make a pouch of aluminum foil and fill with the wood chips. Close the foil pouch and poke a few times with a knife so the smoke can escape. Place the pouch, under the grill in the barbecue but not right under where the ribs will be.
Heat the barbecue to about 325 F. Place the ribs on the grill and and close the lid. Cook for about 2 hours.
After about 45 minutes of cooking, baste the ribs with the mop sauce. Baste them every 30 minutes until they are done.
