Smoking Ribs

Published July 5, 2018 by lynn k scott

Yesterday, as I had the day off (as did most people), I decided it was time to break in my new-to-me smoker.  I had stopped off at the store and picked up two racks of fresh baby back ribs.  Normally, I buy the prepackaged ribs, but I read if you’re going to smoke them, it’s best to buy them fresh.

I seasoned the ribs the night before and marinated them for 24-hours.  By using my own seasoning, I could guarantee it would be gluten-free.  We set up our smoker.  While it has two racks, we only needed one.  I chose to use hickory chunks (they burn longer than chips).

Now, this was my first time ever smoking anything.  I was a bit intimidated but knew I could pull this off.  I made a “mop” sauce for the ribs and mopped them every 45 minutes.  I didn’t have any apple juice in the house, so I juiced some apples and pineapple, which worked very nicely with a few other ingredients.

Finally, it was time to take the ribs off the smoker.  When we cut into the ribs, we realized how much thicker they were than prepackaged ribs.  There was a nice smoke-ring and the flavor was amazing!

My husband and I are already talking about our next smoking adventure.  We want to try a brisket.  I may even use some apple chunks next time.  I am enjoying this new culinary journey.  Once I have mastered this smoker, I believe we will be looking for a larger one.  Oh the delicious possibilities have definitely peaked my interest!
