Smoked BBQ Ribs

Yesterday I smoked some baby back ribs on the grill, aka Smoked BBQ ribs.  I have a Weber grill that is 22.5 inches across.

I gave my ribs a bath in a brine (find the recipe here) for about 4 hours.  I add some fresh basil and rosemary from the garden.  While the ribs where taking a flavorful bath I made a dry rub.







Above are the ribs out of there bath and rubbed with the dry rub.  I let the ribs come to room temperature before putting them on the grill.  This is a great time to start the grill.

I started the chimney with about 50 charcoal bricks.  On the left there are 25 more charcoal bricks.  These will help keep the fire going during the long cooking process.




I have two pans of water in the grill.  One next to the coals and one on top of the coals.  This will help keep the meat moist.  I am cooking with indirect heat, by placing the ribs away from the coals. I added some wood chips for smoke and closed the lid.  I checked them and rotated the ribs every 45 minutes .

About three hours later they were done.  I add some bbq sauce and let them sit on the grill for about ten more minutes.  Serve with your favorite garden vegetables.  Enjoy!!

  1. Thanks for the post. I tried ribs a couple weeks ago and the ended up pretty bad. I was using a shitty propane grill and I think that is what botched them.
