I now realize how delinquent I’ve been regarding introductions.

What I should have said months ago:
“Alton Brown’s ribs, meet my smoker”.

A great feature to this recipe is how its steps can be easily broken down into elements:

After making up AB’s recipe as written a couple of times, I encourage you to study those components, and then steal his recipe and make it yours.

You know what I mean…

Shake up the dry rub:

Change out the braising liquid:

Kick up that glaze:

Next time up, I’m going to take my own advice and cook these babies in the smoker. It’s high time they met.

Yummy! We just bought a smoker two weekends ago and are eagerly collecting recipes, so this is perfect.

These two are my prime guidelines to anything rib and BBQ related, but I’ll try Alton’s recipe this upcoming weekend :)

These came off too salty for my taste. Call me a purist, but these aren’t BBQ. Broiled, to be sure, but without smoke, no BBQ.

You’ve mentioned that you got a smoker. What kind did you get?
