Smoked Baby Back Ribs

     Baby back ribs are one of the easiest meats to cook. They don't take as long to cook as spare ribs, pick up smoke easily and fit easily on the grill or your plate. By smoking them for a few hours and finishing them in the oven, you're sure to get them cooked through and still be moist.

Smoked Baby Back Ribs
1 slab baby back ribs
2 T. of 10 spice dry rub*
kosher salt
cracked black pepper
cooking spray
BBQ sauce

cherry wood chips

Peal silver skin off back of ribs. Cut in half if desired for easier fit. Sprinkle with dry rub, salt and pepper. Return to refrigerator and let sit in plastic container with lid until ready to cook.

Spray smoking grates with cooking spray and heat smoker to 225 degrees. With a pan of water below, place ribs on grates and smoke for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 210 degrees. Place ribs on a foil lined sheet that has been sprayed and wrap ribs in foil, covering tightly. Put in oven for 2 to 2-1/2 hours until they start to pull away from bones.

When meat pulls away from bone and is flexible, open foil and drizzle with BBQ sauce. Increase heat to 300 degrees and return to oven for 1/2 hour.

Remove from oven and serve.
