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.
