These Real Texas Ribs can either be served the same day you cook them, or frozen and you can take out as many as you want and have them at a later time. Note: Before cooking, you will want to put the rub on the ribs and refrigerate overnight.
  Meat tenderizer 4 Ounce (1 Small Bottle)
  Seasoning 3 1⁄2 Ounce (1 Small Bottle, All)
  Garlic and pepper seasoning 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Onion powder 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Cayenne pepper To Taste (You May Use Lots, But This Depends On How Hot You Like Your Spices)
  Beef ribs/Pork ribs 1 Cup (16 tbs)

You can use either Beef or Pork ribs, beef ribs take a little longer to cook. Pat the ribs with paper towels. Place ribs on a cookie sheet and rub in plenty of the Rib Rub. Cover with foil and refrigerate over night.

David prepares his wood fired pit using Mesquite wood. He won’t even consider using anything else. Bring the temperature to 350F degrees. Places the ribs directly on the highest shelf, and smoke 2 to 3 hours turning once. You will know the ribs are smoked by cutting into a rib and you will sometimes see a smoke ring and there will be no blood around the bone. (Yes, you will have to eat the rib. Don’t want it to fall through the grate!) Note: You will want to smoke the ribs early in the day so you will have time to slow cook them in order to eat them the same day.

Take the amount of ribs that you want to eat, and place a single layer (usually 3 to 4 ribs to the rack) in the bottom of a slow cooker pot. Drizzle your favorite BBQ sauce over them and layer with another rack of ribs. Continue to do this until either you have the amount you want to eat or until reaches the top of the pot. Cover and cook on medium heat 2 to 3 hours depending on the amount of ribs.

If you are using frozen ribs that you smoked previously. You can layer them frozen and cook 3 to 4 hours depending on the amount of ribs. Or you can cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.

If you are preparing a large batch of ribs for a group, you can pour the BBQ sauce over the rib racks, and wrap the ribs in heavy duty foil. Make sure your heat is around 300F degrees. Place on top shelf and cook for 2 to 3 hours depending on the amount of ribs. Tip: Don’t have the heat too hot, you are simmering the BBQ sauce into the ribs, not cooking more.
