I love making ribs. And these Smoked Baby Back Ribs are not only the delicious, but they are also super easy to make!
While easy to make, they do require almost 6 hours to make. That's how they get their awesome flavor. So you better plan your day accordingly to ensure they are ready when it's time to eat.
It's amazing how for such a simple recipe, these ribs are packed full of flavor! Over 4 hours in the smoker leaves them so juicy the meat is literally falling off the bone!
I recommend a nice Sweet Rub for this Rib Recipe. If you don't have any on-hand, you can always use my Chili Dry Rub for Ribs.
While you can apply the dry rub right before smoking, we recommend applying the Dry Rub on the ribs and then let it sit for an hour in the refrigerator. This will allow for a deeper flavor penetration.

💭 Baby Back vs St. Louis Style
Baby back ribs are probably what you most often see in grocery stores. They typically have less meat between the bones, but more on top. St. Louis Style on the other hand has more meat between the bones and are fattier than baby backs.
