Making Ranch ribs:
First I prepare the ribs with a rub. I like to use fresh herbs if available so I will begin with those.
2 Tablespoons of fresh course sea salt
2 Tablespoons of fresh ground peppercorns
Rub into meat on both sides.
Let sit for about an hour
Just before wrapping in foil and placing in your smoker I sprinkle on both sides:
Red bell pepper flakes and paprika
Foil them up sealing well.
Set up your smoker to manufactures directions. We use wood and sometimes wood chips in our smoker. If your smoker has a watering pan add 2″ of water. If not use a foil pan and place below where you will be cooking the ribs.
Place fat side up. Smoke until light brown.
Put on smoker for about 4 hours @ 200F
Pull and put on smoker directly for 1 hour
Remove Sauce them with your favorite BBQ and put on direct grill 3 minutes per side.
These ribs are wonderful with some good ol’ corn on the cob and some sweet potatoes cooked in foil and oil! We just love this meal and great to serve with family and friends!
Don’t forget the napkins! Or hose!
God bless and enjoy!
