E.J.’s Awesome Smoked Ribs

One of our favorite methods for cooking healthy meats is the smoker.  E.J. is master of the smoker, and we often smoke a rack or 2 of ribs on a weekend since they portion well for weekly meals and are still good reheated.

Here’s E.J.’s latest rib masterpiece:

Ingredients

  • 1 rack baby back ribs
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp chipotle powder
  • 1 tbsp paprika (we use sweet Hungarian paprika)

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mix the spices together
  2. Rinse ribs and pat dry with paper towels
  3. Coat ribs liberally in spice mixture & rub in with your hands
  4. Setup smoker with your favorite wood chips (we use pecan or apple typically with pork)
  5. Smoke ribs for 6 hours minimum @ 225 deg F.

NOTE:  Some people recommend putting the meat in foil for the last hour, but if you keep a steady temperature, it’s really not needed.
