  1. Rib Prep

    Combine well all the ingredients for the dry rub, then coat both sides of ribs with a good drizzle of mustard (binder) and sprinkle generously with seasoning rub.

  2. Place the ribs in the fridge overnight or refrigerate for at least 6 hours for best results. Tear the membrane off the ribs before seasoning it.

  3. Sprinkle the seasoning rub generously over the ribs.

  4. Place the seasoned ribs in the fridge overnight or refrigerate for at least 6 hours (for best results).

  5. Before seasoning, be sure to tear off the membrane from the ribs.

Grilling Ribs

  1. Set up your grill, set temperature to 250℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. Smoke the ribs, meat-side up for 2 hours.

  2. Remove from the smoker and and place your ribs meat side down on foil. Your foil should have some butter throughout the length and brown sugar on it.

  3. Then tightly wrap the ribs with the foil (double wrap your ribs).

  4. Return the foiled ribs to the grill and cook for two more hours at a temperature of 250℉.

  5. After two hours, carefully remove the foil, watching out not to burn yourself from the steam.

  6. Brush the ribs generously with your favorite BBQ sauce.

  7. Arrange the ribs directly on the grill grate, meat side up, and continue to grill until the sauce tightens (about 10 - 15 minutes).

  8. If you like, add more BBQ sauce in the last minute for extra caramelization.

  9. Enjoy!
