Instructions
 

  • About 15-30 minutes before you are ready to get started, take out your slab of baby back ribs and prep your smoker to 275°.
  • Begin by removing the membrane from the under side of the ribs (Pro tip: Use a paper towel to help with your grip, and assist in ripping the membrane off with one pull).
    1 Slab Baby Back Ribs
  • OPTIONAL: Add binder like mustard prior to applying rubs/spices.
  • Apply a 2 to 1 ratio of Rock's Coffee Rub Spice Blend and Rock's Hey Boo! Honey Spice Blend.
    2 Tbsp Rock's Coffee Rub Spice Blend, 1 Tbsp Rock's Hey Boo! Honey Spice Blend
  • With the ribs flipped to meat side up, again apply a 2 to 1 ratio of Rock's Coffee Rub Spice Blend and Rock's Hey Boo! Honey Spice Blend.
    2 Tbsp Rock's Coffee Rub Spice Blend, 1 Tbsp Rock's Hey Boo! Honey Spice Blend
  • NOTE: Don't forget to also apply rub to the ends and sides.
  • When your smoker is up to temp (275°) place your ribs on, meat side up. Let them smoke for approx. 2 hours.
  • After smoking for two hours, pull ribs off the smoker and wrap tightly with aluminum foil. A great technique is to lay out a long sheet of foil, then "roll" the slab of ribs over multiple times and then close up one end. On the open end, take a small amount of water and pour into your foil. Close the open end.
  • Then place your ribs back on the smoker, at 275°, and smoke for approx. 1 hour.
  • After the two hours smoking unwrapped, and the 1 hour smoking wrapped you should be able to tell if the ribs are done because the bones will now be exposed and pulled away slightly from the edges.
  • If the bones are pulled away, remove them from the foil and place on the smoker. Then apply a liberal amount of Rock's Irish Whiskey BBQ sauce to the ribs and mop/brush on.
    2 Tbsp Rock's Irish Whiskey BBQ Sauce
  • Allow the ribs to smoke for another 10-15 minutes on 275° to set the sauce.
  • After the sauce is set, allow your ribs to rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.

When it comes to delectable dishes, few things top ribs in my book. Whether I’m smoking them for a summer barbecue, making a few slabs at the lake or diving in at a restaurant any time of the year, I just can’t resist the savory taste of the meat coupled with a tangy, smoky & spicy barbecue sauce. For me, the perfect rib strikes a delicate balance between tender and firm, with just the right amount of smokiness to really bring out the flavor. Whether it’s pork or beef, every bite is a true pleasure.
But there’s so much more to the world of ribs than just the classic BBQ flavor. Have you ever tried Korean-style ribs, marinated in a sweet and spicy sauce and grilled to perfection? Or maybe you’d prefer a dry rub of herbs and spices, slow-cooked to tender perfection. And let’s not forget about the many different regional styles of barbecue – from Memphis to Kansas City to Texas, each with its own unique take on the beloved rib.
Of course, the way you like your ribs prepared is a matter of personal preference. Some people like them fall-off-the-bone tender, while others prefer a bit of chewiness. And the sauce – oh, the sauce. Whether you like it sweet, tangy, spicy, or a combination of all three, there’s a sauce out there that’s sure to please your taste buds.
So tell me, how do you like your ribs? Do you have a favorite preparation or sauce? Or are you always on the lookout for a new and exciting way to enjoy this beloved dish? Whatever your preferences may be, there’s no denying that ribs are a true culinary masterpiece – and one that’s always worth savoring.
