Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Celebrate and honor our veterans and those who didn’t make it back from the battlefields. They would want us to celebrate our freedom as they gave so much to fight for it. So, eat well, drink up and cheers to those who fought for us.
Not So Famous Dave’s Smoked Ribs
2 Pork St. Louis Style Ribs, membrane removed
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons Smoked Paprika
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon Dry Mustard
1 tablespoon Kosher Salt
1 tablespoon celery salt
1 tablespoon pepper
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons Garlic powder
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
Your favorite off the shelf or home made BBQ sauce
After removing the membrane on the bone side, slather the ribs with a good coating of yellow mustard.
Combine all the ingredients of the dry rub and sprinkle onto the ribs.
Wrap the seasoned ribs in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours and as long as overnight.
Grill and Smoke:
When ready to cook, set your smoker to 180 degrees and preheat.
Smoke the ribs, meat side up for 2 hours.
Remove the ribs from the smoker and tightly wrap them with foil or butcher paper.
Increase the smoker temperature to 225 degrees.
Return the wrapped ribs to the smoker and cook for two more hours. After two hours, remove the foil or butcher paper.
Brush the ribs well on both sides with BBQ sauce. Put the ribs directly on the grill grate and continue to grill until the sauce tightens (30 minutes or so). If you like, brush the ribs again just before taking off the grill. That’s it. Enjoy! Tappan Out!
