Sticky BBQ Ribs smokingly good

Competition grade succulent, moist, falling off the bone ribs. A clean bone is the sign of a good rib and these are good ribs.

The key to these BBQ ribs is the long low and slow cooking. This method produces a nice smoke ring but not overly smokey.

Sprinkled with my BBQ rib rub and coated in my BBQ sauce recipe. You just can’t get enough!

To set-up your BBQ for indirect cooking see the method here.

My preferred wood for smoking the ribs is Hickory, you can buy wood chunks online easily now.


  • 4 Racks baby back Pork ribs
  • 1 Recipe of my Rib Rub (or store bought)
  • 1 Recipe of my BBQ sauce (or store bought)
  • A chink of Mesquite wood or Hickory


Step 1

Allow the racks to come to room temperature. Lightly coat the ribs on both sides with the rub and allow to sit for 40 minutes.

Step 2

Light the BBQ using indirect heat method, coals on one side ribs on the other, you can use a BBQ rib rack as in the above image, this allows you to stack the ribs and lets the smoke circulate. (available online).

Step 3

When the temperature is about 225 fahrenheit 107 centigrade, place the racks on the BBQ away from the heat and add a chunk of Mesquite or Hickory to the hot coals. Keep the lid on the BBQ. * IMPORTANT* Adjust the heat vents on your BBQ to maintain this low temperature. *NOTE* It is likely that you may need to add 3 or 4 coals during the long cooking process to maintain a constant temperature.

Step 4

Heat the BBQ sauce to a gentle simmer.. While the racks are cooking baste them with the BBQ sauce. After the long slow cooking the ribs will be very tender. When cooked remove to a warm oven and pour over the remaining BBQ sauce until you are ready to serve.
