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 letting it sit for an hour in the refrigerator. This will allow for a deeper flavor penetration.

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.

    These smoked baby back ribs were very juicy. Very flavourful and the dry rub made them delicious. Very easy to make. This recipe was great using my smoker for the first time.
