Slow Smoke Pork Ribs

We had a house full of family and friends for the 4th of July week. This gave me the perfect opportunity to try out my new Char-Griller Offset Smoker. These Slow Smoke Pork Ribs were a perfect fit for the weekend.

My new grill is a combination of charcoal grill and smoker. On the 4th of July, we grilled two of our favorites. Grilled leg of lamb and Rosemary Ranch Chicken.

You'll find both of these delicious recipes below

On Saturday we made these slow-smoked pork ribs for the crowd. We picked out two racks of nice side spare ribs. We then removed the silver skin from the backside of the ribs. Bobby and I seasoned the ribs with a combination of Penzeys Galena Street Rib & Chicken Rub and Carolina Seasoning Rub Some Butt.

 We then put them in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.

We fired up the smoker using charcoal as the fuel and Hickory wood chunks for the smoke. We inserted the meat probes from our ThermoPro TP20 into the meaty part of the ribs and set it for 190 degrees internal temperature.  

We sprayed the ribs with apple juice every hour and brushed on barbecue sauce twice in the last hour of smoking.

After 5 hours of maintaining our smoker temperature of between 225 to 260 degrees, we reached our ribs internal temperature of 190 degrees. 

These Slow Smoke Pork Ribs were a real crowd-pleaser. They were seasoned just right and had a nice Hickory smoked flavor.

This is my first smoke in my new offset smoker. I would not succeded if not for David Farrell and his book The Old Fat Guy's Guide to Smoking Meat For Beginners. I have been following David's blog oldfatguy.ca for some time now. He has been a true inspiration to me to getting started on smoking foods. I followed David's method for these ribs outlined in his blog and his book and I succeded. 

If you're a beginner or have been smoking meats for a while this book is for you.
This book is packed with information from David's years of experience.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy
