There’s just nothing that says summer like a slab of ribs dripping with sauce and filled with smoky goodness
This past weekend we had some friends over for an afternoon of swimming, relaxing and good food.
I decided that was the perfect time to bust out my Dibs on My Ribs grillin’ kit
Instead of spending time creating my own rub or marinating the ribs, I used some yummy McCormick’s Grill Mates Sweet and Smoky Rub, Kraft’s Spicy Honey BBQ Sauce, a rack of Tyson’s Spareribs and a pecan woodchip smoking tin and got to rubbin’, soakin’ and smokin’
Nathan removed the casing from the ribs so the rub would fully penetrate the meat, he rubbed the rack of ribs all over with the sweet & smoky rub and let it sit while the wood chips soaked.
In my Dibs on my Ribs grillin’ kit, I got the coolest Rib Cooking Rack, so we decided to slow S-L-O-W smoke the ribs instead of grilling them…
In case you’re curious — we made the right choice. It took a couple hours to cook the ribs, but oh my holy tonguegasmic deliciousness y’all…
I will probably from here on out, take the time to find the wood chip kits/packets and turn my gas grill into a smoker because slow smoking these ribs made them hands down THE BEST RIBS I HAVE EVER EATEN.
After we removed them from the grill, I slathered them with Kraft’s Spicy Honey Barbecue sauce
You know how I know these ribs were beyond tonguegasmically delicious, flavor packed, amazing and holy hell y’all wonderful???
The faces smeared with bbq sauce, the silence at the table and the complete and utter lack of pictures after that last one.
Nathan declared these ribs the best EVER and asked me repeatedly why we don’t make ribs more often.
Oh honey, we’re going to be making them more often now that we’ve figured out how to do them right.
