Baby Back Ribs – Break Is Over
Well, that lasted long, a whole two days. Back to pork and doing it right with baby back ribs. Tried a few new things tonight and it turned out pretty well. Used some of the Rocky Trail Smoking Chunks on the propane grill to give the ribs a bit of smoky flavor. Also used some Pork Barrel BBQ and some of Big Acres Gourmet Foods BBQ sauce. Got the grill going on high and added the wood chunks right away. It takes a while for these things to heat up to the point of smoking after soaking them in water for over two hours. Once the chunks got black and started to smoke, I added the ribs to the grill as well as some corn on the cob. The ribs were real simple. Just added some Pork Barrel BBQ All American Rub and put them on when it was ready. I also just put the corn on the cob on the grill. I use to spend time removing all of the hair but decided it is a waste of time when grilling. It always falls right off when it is done and you are ready to eat it. Anyhow, I cooked the ribs until they were to 150 – 155 degrees and pulled them off. I let them rest for about five minutes then cut them up and served. I like to dip my ribs in BBQ sauce rather than smother them while cooking so I put some of the Big Acres Rich and Mild BBQ Sauce on the side.
Feels great to eat a dinner like that. I didn’t cook up any rice or potatoes with this dinner as I didn’t feel the need to add filler when I could just as easily eat more ribs.
