Just got my CG a couple weeks ago and "initiated" it with some good ol' pork country ribs. This is my first time cooking them on the smoker. I've always done them in the oven.
They turned out fabulous, so I thought I would share the recipe with the community. Here's what I did:
Got 2 lbs of country ribs cut at Krogers about 2" thick (I'm good friends w/ the meat dept. manager there). The ones they sell on the shelf are not thick enough in my opinion for smokin'
The night before: sprayed them a 50/50 mix of jack daniels and apple juice, rubbed them down with my rub, let them sit overnight.
The next day: Pulled them from fridge, hit them again with the rub. Let them sit out to reach room temp while I fired up the CG.
Used a mix of hickory and apple chunks. Smoked at 225-250 for 1 1/2 hours naked turning once after 45 min.
Mopped again with a little more jack and apple juice. Wrapped in foil, smoked approx another 1 1/2 hrs. maintaining between 225-250
Unwrapped from foil. Placed back on smoker naked for the final 30 min of cooking. Cranked vents wide open, removed water pans. Temp climbed a little to about 265 deg. Hit them with Stubbs BBQ sauce during last 15 min. Pulled from smoker and let rest about 10 minutes.
Delicious ....Sorry I didn't get any pics. I will next time.
