    Smoked Baby back ribs with grilled corn

    So, my "usual" Sunday is either smoking something or grilling something for dinner, yesterday I decided on some baby backs and whole corn:

    1st I start by removing the membrane from the back of the rack, they say if you're good, you can remove the whole piece all together:



    With ribs, I usually dry rub them 1st and smoke them, then add BBQ sauce, so for my proprietary rub (LoL) I use garlic salt, garlic powder, black pepper, old bay, onion powder and ground ginger (I forgot to add it to the picture):




    Then, I trim a little fat from the rack:




    Next, we add the dry spices:








    I like to "brine" my whole corn:





    Then, the ribs are off to the smoker!!! I use mesquite lump charcoal for the heat and pieces of cherry wood for the flavor:





    About once an hour I brush the ribs with a mixture of apple juice and apple cider vinegar:




    Getting there!!!











    After about 3 hours I wrap it in foil and leave it in the smoker for about 2 more hours, so this was after being in the foil for 2 hours:








    Then, I baste it up with some Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce and grill the rack on the direct heat for a good 5-10 minutes basting as needed:








    So, here we have the final product with my favorite beer!!!!

    Re: Smoked Baby back ribs with grilled corn

    Nice thread.

    I just started up my Big Green Egg smoker today at noon. I have family over so I got 3 racks (~12 pounds) of St. Louis Style ribs. I trimmed the ribs (basically just removed the membrane and cut the racks to fit into my upright rib-rack), patted them dry and then did a thin film of dijon mustard & avocado oil on the surface. Then I hit it with my rub (dark brown sugar, paprika, garlic/onion powder, ginger, black pepper & a pinch of salt) and let soak in fridge for 2 hours.



    Got my smoker up to 250F and the rack is in....Plan is to do 2 to 2-1/2 hours in the smoke, then pull the ribs and foil wrap them. Then I let them cook for another 2-1/2 hours in foil and see where we are at. I don't usually do the BBQ sauce slather at the end and just let folks choose if they want sauce or not at the dinner table. I honestly just preferred the smoke meat with the flavorful bark and will just dip in some BBQ sauce if I feel like it.

    Final product -





    The meat practically fell off the bones. Lots of good flavor and the perfect amount of smoke & sweetness. 12lbs of ribs all gone. Many happy faces and lots of full bellies.

    Re: Smoked Baby back ribs with grilled corn

    Wish me luck...I have an untrimmed 12lbs beef brisket to smoke It's going to require a 12hr smoke and I've already gotten plenty of warnings that they are super easy to dry out / over cook and turn into shoe leather. Going to be a major challenge

    Re: Smoked Baby back ribs with grilled corn

    Yeah, I've smoked a brisket only a few times....I would recommend a digi thermometer to ensure you know exactly where you're at!

    Yes. I just got one a few weeks back. I need to install it today. It's a dual probe unit - one probe monitors the smoker temp the other probe monitors food temp. It also comes with a 2nd remote unit so I can monitor from inside the house.
