What rub for back ribs.
« on: November 27, 2009, 03:45:52 PM »
OK, I want to try some pork back ribs this weekend for the first time, I think I am going to use the "How To Make Ribs in a Bradley Pictorial" post method. What are you guys using for a rub??

Did this formula and they were great. Going to do them for Christmas on spare ribs.

October 31 2009 Smoked ribs. First put mustard rub on ribs then put dry rub on ribs and wrapped
in cling wrap and into frig over night.Outside temp 45.
Mustard sauce;
1 12 oz can flat beer
4 cups yellow mustard
1 tbsp tabasco
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper

Rib rub;
1/2 cup paprika
1/2 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated garlic
6 tbsp granulated onion  (Chopped dry minced onions)
1/4 cup chili powder (2 small bottles)
1 tbsp black pepper
Took out and let get to room temp. Preheated smoker to 280 then turned down to 225  and
smoked for 3 hours,(2 mes.2 app,1 m,1,a,1m,2a) Take out of smoker and wrap in foil with
apple juice. Put back in smoker for 1 hour. Take out of foil and put barbeque sauce on
them and back into smoker for 1 hour. The ribs will stiffen back up and the sauce will set.
The meat will pull back from the bone when done. Take a toothpick and check between ribs to
see if done. Ribs were super. Don't change a thing.

Thanks guys, I got just over 6 lbs rubbed and in the fridge for the night, kind of my own concoction of a rub, what I had on hand dictated ingredents. I will be smoking tomorrow, and I will post some pics. One more question I have is how much do I leave the vent open on top of the BS?

Well we got things smoking here today. The only problem I am having is the smoker can't quite get up to temp. outside temps are are just at freezing and the smoker is definatly out of the wind. It is sitting at 200* and I would love to see between 220 and 230. I have my vent running 3/4 open. Any idea how much longer to cook?

With the load you have, you may not have to worry about excessive moisture that can bring your temperatures down. Try closing your vent to 1/2 and see if you see an improvement in heat. If that works try 1/4 open making sure no smoke is backing into the generator. If the temperature begins to drop at 1/4 open go back to 1/2.

         don't
                   inhale.
