Baby Back Ribs

This is what I made to go with the cole slaw and beans.  Ribs!

Several days before smoking, prepare the ribs.  Notice The Blog Tech totally covering the ribs with yellow mustard.

After spreading mustard over the entire rack, sprinkle them with Magic Dust.  This is my recipe:

3/4 C. brown sugar
3/4 C. white sugar
1/2 C. smoked paprika
1/4 C. kosher salt
4 T. granulated garlic
2 T. ground black pepper
2 T. ground ginger
2 T. onion powder
2 T. dried ground rosemary
2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Spread each rack with mustard and sprinkle them all over with the magic dust.  Wrap them in heavy duty aluminum foil and keep them in the refrigerator for a couple days.

I smoke mine standing in a rack on my grill with the lid closed at 250 degrees for 6 hours.  You can do them in the oven at the same temperature for the same amount of time.For the last hour, coat them with BBQ sauce and continue to cook.  I will show my BBQ sauce recipe tomorrow.

Mmmm...moist and falling off the bone.

Crunchy and delicious on the outside.

Make a lot because they are really good leftover.

Perfect with these sides.


I would kill for a slab of those ribs. I'm trying this soon.

all I can say is your family must eat better than anyone I know, the work you put in things is amazing, you make cooking an art form, thats for sure.I will be honest and say I cannot see myself doing this rib recipe in a million years, (too complicated and as you know I'm half blind!!!) but my gosh I hope my son or daughter will.

Between last post and this post, you have made the perfect summer meal. I'd probably add some sweet corn, but then I always eat too much anyway. I really want to try the ribs, but it's just so darn hot to use the oven here and I don't have a smoker. I might check into it though. The cole slaw really looks delicious.
