Baby Back Ribs on a pellet smoker!

Its suummertime!


What says summer more than a nice rack of smoked baby bak ribs?



  1. Prepare the pellet smoker:

    • Fill the pellet smoker hopper with apple or cherry wood pellets.
    • Preheat the pellet smoker to 225°F (107°C) according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Prepare the ribs:

    • Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs by lifting it with a butter knife and peeling it off.
    • Rinse the ribs under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels.
    • Apply a generous amount of Caribeque Honey Heat Rub to both sides of the ribs, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  3. Smoke the ribs:

    • Place the ribs directly on the smoker grates, bone side down.
    • Close the smoker lid and let the ribs smoke for approximately 3 to 4 hours at 225°F (107°C), or until the internal temperature reaches around 195°F (90°C) and the meat is tender. The smoking time may vary, so use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.
  4. Optional: Glaze with barbecue sauce:

    • If desired, during the last 30 minutes of smoking, brush the ribs with your favorite barbecue sauce.
    • Allow the sauce to caramelize on the ribs by leaving them on the smoker for an additional 15 minutes.
  5. Rest and serve:

    • Once the ribs are cooked to your desired tenderness, carefully remove them from the smoker and let them rest for about 10 minutes.
    • Slice the ribs between the bones and serve them hot with additional barbecue sauce on the side, if desired.

Note: Remember to follow safety guidelines when handling raw meat, and always consult your pellet smoker's manual for specific instructions and temperature settings. Enjoy your delicious smoked baby back ribs with Caribeque Honey Heat rub!
