Missouri KC Style Baby Back Ribs
||4 hours, 30 minutes
- 2 slabs of pork baby back ribs, about 2 lbs. each
- Barbecue rub
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 Tbsp. Louisiana Hot Sauce
- 1/4 cup apple juice
- Barbecue sauce
- Prepare your cooker to cook indirect at 250°F using cherry wood smoke for flavor.
- Peel the membrane off the back of the ribs and trim any excess fat.
- Season the ribs liberally on both sides with the barbecue rub.
- Place in the smoker meat side up and cook for 2-1/2 hours.
- Lay out two big double sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
- Remove the ribs from the cooker and place one on each piece of foil meat side up.
- Drizzle each slab with half of the honey and half of the hot sauce.
- Close up the rib packages, pressing out as much air as possible. As you close, add 1/2 of the apple juice to each package.
- Return to the cooker for 1 hour.
- Open the package and check for doneness by poking a toothpick down into the meat. It should slide in and out very easily.
- When the ribs are done to your liking, remove from the foil and place them on a cutting board.
- To serve, cut each slab into 4 pieces and serve with sauce on the side.
- If you want the ribs more tender, increase the cook time.
