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!!
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.
