It was finally a nice day today and the snow piles have melted enough that I was able to dig out the smoker! I acquired my offset smoker at the end of the fall last year and only had one chance to experiment with it before it got too cold. I have been waiting all winter long to try it again! What better way to get into warmer weather than smoking some ribs?
The first time I attempted smoking it was with charcoal and wood chips. This time I opted to use all wood, hickory. I made a rub of chili powder, onion and garlic powder, flower, black and white pepper, crushed red chili pepper, oregano, basil, and paprika and brown sugar. Smoking time was 3 hours. The end result was some of the juiciest flavorful ribs I have ever had! I can’t wait to do it again!
