Ingredients
  • FOR THE RUB

  • 4 racks Snake River Farms Kurobuta Spare Ribs (see sales links above)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sweet paprika
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • FOR THE SAUCE

  • 3 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp molasses
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 8 Tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
Instructions
  1. Mix sugar, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Brush oil on ribs on baking sheet and sprinkle with this rub. Let the ribs sit 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce: Whisk together ketchup, sugar, vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire, chili powder, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper and 3/4 cup water in a 4-quart saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  3. Cook, stirring until thickened, for about 20 minutes. Remove from heat, measure 1 cup into a bowl and stir in 1/4 cup honey and the apple cider vinegar. Set aside. Reserve remaining sauce. Pour apple juice into a spray bottle and set aside.
  4. Prepare your grill using apple wood chunks or chips. Place ribs meat side up on grill grate. Maintaining a temperature of 225 degrees to 275 degrees, cook spraying with juice every 30 minutes for 3 hours. Remove ribs from grill and transfer to 2 large stacked sheets of foil. Drizzle butter, honey and sugar evenly over both sides of ribs. Position ribs meat side up and close foil around ribs. Return to grill and cook for 2 hours. Uncover ribs and discard foil. Return ribs to grill and cook, basting with sauce after 30 minutes, until the tip of a small knife slips easily in and out of the meat, about 1 hour. Serve with remaining sauce.

Have you ever wanted to smoke some BBQ ribs but you just didn't want to mess with all the foiling and timing and spraying with apple juice, etc, etc? What if I told you you could smoke some competition quality ribs without much trouble at all? Here's how...
Author:
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 11-13 bones
Ingredients
  • Full racks of spareribs
  • Your favorite rub
  • Your favorite sauce
Instructions
  1. Buy full racks of spareribs.
  2. You can pull the membrane off the back if you want. But if you're too lazy, don't worry about it. For a competition, you definitely have to pull it off.
  3. Apply your favorite rub. Don't use a rub with too much sugar in it as it will tend to burn easier.
  4. Smoke on your smoker using indirect heat at 250 deg F for 5 hours. During this time, all you need to do is keep your smoker temperature at 250 deg. Be sure to measure your pit temperature at the grate where your meat is. Use whatever wood flavor you like, but fruitwoods like apple and cherry are good with ribs.
  5. If your smoker has a hotter side or if all the heat comes from below, you may want to flip and rotate your BBQ ribs once after 2.5 hours. But other than that, keep your lid closed to keep in the heat. Don't even open the lid to spray with apple juice or anything like that.
  6. After 5 hours, brush on some sauce front and back and set the glaze for another 15-30 minutes in the smoker.
  7. Slice between the bones and Eat em up!

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Asian
Ingredients
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger minced
  • 8 Serrano peppers minced with seeds
  • 4 small green onions minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime zest
  • juice of 3 limes
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
Instructions
  1. If you lightly chop all of this, a good blender can take care of the rest. Will work for 2 - 3 slabs of baby backs. Marinate with some of the sauce for 4 - 8 hours. Reserve remainder of sauce for dipping later. I smoke the ribs on a gas grill with hickory at about 250 for 5 hours. Basting occasionally with some of the reserve sauce.
  2. These are pretty spicy and go great with Pad Thai.
  3. Thank you again.
