Well vacation was coming to an end, so I decided to smoke some baby back ribs. I went to Sam's and picked up a 3 pack at a decent price. I fired up the smoker and reached 250, hickory as the flavor kicker. I like to do my ribs in a 2-2-1 or 3-1-1 method. Translated it means time on the smoker, time wrapped in foil, then time back in smoker and sauced.
After I mix up the rub, I like to prep the ribs. Not much trimming for me on baby backs, but I do like to remove the membrane on the back of the ribs. The process is pretty easy; take a knife, cut under the membrane and grab with a paper towel (See Below).
So the membrane is off and time for a little rub. I also like to add a little more brown sugar to the ribs prior to adding the rub.
Ribs after 3 hours, time to foil and return to smoker for an hour. I like to add a little apple juice or Dr. Pepper to the bottom of the foil, then wrap.
Ribs after an hour of being wrapped in foil, time for a little sauce and honey.
