Memphis Style BBQ Ribs

AmateurKitchen's picture
This is a recipe that will be used over and over again when smoking ribs. A sweet and smoky rub gives these ribs a 5 star flavor.
Ingredients
  Baby back ribs 2 Pound
  Brown sugar 3 Tablespoon
  Paprika 3 Tablespoon
  Chili powder 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic powder 1 Tablespoon
  Ground cumin 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Cracked black pepper 2 Teaspoon
  Barbecue sauce 8 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Soak wood chips in water 1 hour prior to placing on the grill.
2. Remove the silver skin from the back of the ribs, by doing this it will allow the seasonings to penetrate into the meat.
3. In a bowl combine the brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Rub the dry rub over the ribs and set aside for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
4. Preheat the grill and place the wood chips over the fire (watch how-to video to see how to use wood chips with a gas grill.)

MAKING
5. Once wood chips begin to smoke lower the heat and place ribs on the grill, use a rib rack or place on indirect heat.
6. Maintain the grill heat to 275-300 degrees for 3 hours while the ribs smoke and cook.
7. The last 45 minutes of smoking, baste with barbecue sauce every 15 minutes.

SERVING
8. Take ribs off of the grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes then cut between the bones.
9. Serve with corn bread and enjoy!
