How To Make Smoked Barbecue Pork Ribs
Searching for that perfect rack of BBQ pork ribs doesn't have to be like the quest for the Holy Grail - you can make them yourself! Pull up a seat for a master class from grill master Travis Randall. Saviour our smoked barbecue pork ribs.
Step 1: You will need
- 1 Mixing bowl
- 1 Wire whisk
- 1 Tin Foil
- 1 Smoker
Step 2: Removing The Membrane
The first thing you are going to want to do is remove the membrane from the bottom of the ribs. This will help the smoke to permeate the meat.
Using a knife score the membrane slightly on the bottom running along the ribs. Then get a spoon and slide it between the meat and the membrane. Pull the membrane off and discard it.
Step 3: Rub-A-Dub-Dub Ribs
Now it's time to add some more flavor to our ribs. Take your yellow mustard and squirt it all over. Now rub it in real good. This will give the rub something to stick to and the high vinegar content of the mustard will help break down the meat and make it nice and tender.
Throw on a big handful of the rub you made earlier and rub it in real good.
Take some of your aluminum foil and put your ribs right in the center and wrap them up nice and tight. We are going to put these in the refrigerator overnight to let them absorb all that rub and be ready for the smoker tomorrow.
Step 4: Smoke Time!
Oooh Baby! These things have been in the refrigerator letting that rub work its way in. Now we are going to throw them on the smoker for 4-6 hours.
You want to get them in the middle for good air flow.
We aren't going to look at those for 2 hours.
Step 5: Spray Spray Spray
Alright our ribs have been smoking for about 2 hours. What we are going to do know is take a spray bottle, filled with either apple juice or beer, and spray our ribs every 20 minutes until they are done. This will help keep the nice and moist.
Remember we want to keep this lid up for as short of a time as possible because it cools down the cooking chamber and it takes a while to get back up to temperature
Notice how the bones are sticking out and the meat has pulled back away from them. They are done!
Take the ribs off. Be careful so they don't fall apart.
Step 6: Slice and Serve
Those ribs are ready to serve! There are few things we have to do and they will be ready to eat.
Get your ribs onto a cutting board.
Now just flip your ribs upside down and slice right along the bones.
They should come apart with no problems.
