  • Select a medium or smaller rack of Baby Back Ribs.
  • Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs.
  • Now cut the ribs into two rib sections. Each session will be two ribs.
  • We will be using Weber KC BBQ Rub.
  • Cover both sides with the rub and then let the ribs sit in the refrigerator for 1 hour. This will allow the salt in the rub to permeated the meat.
  • Now insert the ribs into the GoSun Sport cooking tray.
  • It will be a tight fit but ou should get 10 ribs into the tray.
  • Now we add the liquid smoke. Liquid smoke is nothing more than smoke that has been reduced and liquified.
  • Just a few drops on each 2 rib section.
  • We will be cooking by temperature and not time se we now insert a micro food probe in the middle between the two ribs. Make sure you do not hit the bone.
  • Now slowly load the cooking tray ino the solar cooker. making sure that the seal is completely closed.

The Cook

  • This day the sun was out but the air temperature was 45F. The Sport solar cooker is not affected by the outside temperature.
  • The ribs reached the internal temperature of 200F in a little over an hours but we allowed the ribs to cook for 2 hours and 3 minutes.
  • We then removed the ribs from the cooking tray. They looked well cooked.
  • We then sliced the 2 rib sections so that we had 10 separate ribs.
  • The sauce we used was Stubs Sweet Heat and we applied a then coat of sauce on each rib.
  • We took a bite and the rib had the perfect tug. Not fall off the bone for that is overcooked but just a small tug and the meat comes clean from the bone.
  • I gave these ribs a huge thumbs up. Bob Appetit.
