Smoked BBQ Ribs #CookoutWeek

Welcome to day one of #CookoutWeek! If you haven't seen the giveaway going on, check it out here.  There are all sorts of cool BBQ prizes to win.

It worked out well that #CookoutWeek coincided with us using our new smoker for the first time. Mr. J has been hankering for some BBQ and there was no time like the present to give ribs a try.  We used country style bone-in pork ribs but you could use any type of pork rib. (You may need to adjust the cooking time accordingly)

Before smoking we covered all of the ribs with Swine Dining's Wimpy BBQ rub.  This rub was perfect for us since we were going to share with Miss O. Although most of the time she likes hot and spicy food,  you never know with a toddler.  With this sweet rub we didn't have to worry about her closing her mouth and shaking her head "no" at dinner time.

You can make your own rub but when you are trying to prep for dinner it is easiest to go with a pre-made mixture.  Swine Dining makes every batch by hand to ensure quality and freshness.  You only need to open the container and smell to know this is true.  

We have a smaller electrical smoker. It doesn't get hot enough to cook the ribs thoroughly enough to eat right from the smoker so we grilled ours to finish them off.  Of course, I think grilling also adds another flavor dimension to the ribs so we probably would have done so anyway.

After about 5-7 minutes on each side we added BBQ sauce and the meal was done.

  1. I keep looking at smokers but haven't made the leap yet. This recipe may change my mind.

  2. I've never used a smoker before, but ahh, you make me want to get one, haha. I love ribs and this looks amazing!

  3. Not much better than this. We just won a smoker and can't wait to try it!

  4. I'm so jealous you have a smoker!
