smokers and dry rub. How to?


Getting a smoker Saturday and want to do some baby back ribs. Is there a pre-mixed dry rub out there worth a crap,or should i make my own? Do you apply the rub and let sit overnight or sprinkle on a few hours before cooking?

pull the membrane off on the bone side. Slather with mustard, apply rub (store bought brands are good, or check the internet if you want to make your own). Set out on the counter for a couple of hours and then put on the smoker at 250deg, 3 hours unfoiled, 2 hours foiled, and 0.5 to 1 hour unfoiled. Spritz with apple juice while cooking. They are ready when the bend in half good when picked up with tongs in the middle.

El Jefe.. What does the mustard do other than flavor?

helps the rub stick. really don't taste it. i guess scientifically, the acid may help tenderize the meat, but i'm not sure.

If you have to use a premade rub, Bad Byron's Butt Rub and Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust are pretty decent.

This is true. Also, although high as giraffe pu$$y, BGE puts out some good stuff.

Jefe has sound advice but his 3-2-1 method is better applied to spare ribs and not baby backs. I'd try a 2-1-1 as in my experience 6 hours of cooking time is too much for baby backs. Just one man's opinion... Good luck!

1 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Paprika
2-1/2 TBS Course (Salad Grind) Black Pepper
1-1/2 tsp Chili Powder
1-1/2 TBS Garlic Powder
1-1/2 TBS Onion Powder
1 tsp Cayenne (Red Pepper)
2 TBS Kosher Salt

I have had good luck using this one.

There are a lot of good pre made dry rubs for pork. Make sure there is brown sugar in them.

Also another tip is to make a big mixture of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce and lather it on every half hour or so while it's cooking

You are correct. I missed the baby back part.

My regular go to for ribs:

texasbbqrub.com


And 2-1-1 if you're crutching but if the ribs you purchase(d) have been injected by the seller, I don't think a wrap is necessary. (I would stay away from injected pork but if it's all that is available then it is what it is)
