Preparation

  • 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.

Instructions

  • We will be doing this cook on the Daniel Boone Grill from Green Mountain Grills. We start with a large spare rib. There is actually two and I bought them at our local market for $13 a piece.
  • First step is we need to square up the ribs by doing a St. Louis cut. First I find the end of the ribs and make a shallow cut. Using the knife you keep making deeper cuts till you cut all the way through. What you want is as close to a rectangle as possible with both sides parallel with each other. Now do not throw away and of the extra meat. That meat makes fantastic rib meat tacos or pork shepherd's pie.
  • Now with everything squared up you can now trim the flap meat that sits on top. These ribs had the membrane already removed but if the membrane is present it needs to be removed.
  • Repeat the same procedure on the second rack of ribs and then put both racks into a full-size foil pan.
  • Now it is time for the rub. On this cook, I am using the Everything Rub for Loot N Booty. It is a great pork rub but like they say it is good on everything, On these ribs, you need to use a lot of rub and you need to cover every inch. One reason why I use a foil pan is first I do not want to make a mess but second I do not waste any rub.
  • In a preheated grill set at 225F put ribs directly on the grate.
  • Now cook for 3 hours.
  • Remove ribs and place in to the same full size foil pan from before. I use a foil pan so I can put the sauce on right away and do have to worry about foil wrap messing up my sauce. The glazing sauce we are using is Southwest Sweet Heat BBQ sauce. Apply sauce to the top side of the ribs. I usually put two coats but just on top. Leaving one side dry make is a lot easier to handle the ribs and with two coats you have plenty of sauce and glaze.
  • Now this part is very important. You need to use a new lid. You then put the lid on and make sure that it Is completely sealed. The pan has to be airtight. By being airtight the ribs will not dry out and even more important the sauce will not burn.
  • Now it is back to the 225F grill to cook for 2 more hours.
  • Then remove lid and let ribs sit uncovered but still in pan for 1 more hour. Check at 30 minutes to make sure the sauce does not burn. After the final hour pull ribs for grill.
  • So this is how they should look. You want that dark mahogany color and the glaze should firm and not runny. When you cut the ribs the meat should stay together and the cuts should look very clean. No mushy ribs. As you can see as I cut the ribs they cut real clean and have a great smoke ring. Also the glaze is staying on the ribs and not getting all over the cutting board.
  • As you can see the ribs are firm, have a clean cut and have a great smoke ring. Also the glaze is staying on the ribs and not getting all over the cutting board. This method will give you perfect ribs every time.

Instructions

  • In this video, we will be smoking baby back ribs on the Rec Tec Bullseye Grill First, we have to prepare the ribs and then mean we need to remove the membrane. Find a really dull butter knife.
    butter knife
  • Starting on the wider part of the ribs slowly lift the membrane using the dull knife. When there is enough membrane to grab use a paper towel to slowly remove the membrane The more membranes you remove the easier it gets.
    remove membrane
  • Now get a broiling pan and lay the ribs with the membrane side up. We now apply the rub. This time I am using Mc Cormick grill mates sweet and smoky rub. I do one rack of ribs at a time. First, I apply rub and then I spray with a vegetable oil so the rub stays in place. The reason you apply the rub first is you want the salts and sugars to dissolve in the meat. You do not want the oil to get in between the rub and the meat.
    apply rub
  • Then flip over the ribs and do it all over again. As far as oil I have tried many but any low-cost cooking oil will work. If you have the time you might want to let the rub sit for about thirty minutes. Then it is off to the grill.
    flip ribs and add more rub
  • You should pre heat the bullseye grill till it is a minimum of 225F. I find adjusting the Temperature dial to the 10 o clock position will get pretty close to temperature.
    10 o clock
  • I like my ribs without a lot of moisture but you could add apple juice, honey or even Parkay. Now cook for 2 more hours.
    foiled ribs
  • Remove the foil and be careful to not let the juice fall to the bottom of the grill. You can see how the ribs are bending they are technically done but we are going them dry out on the grill for another 30 minutes. I did not save the juices this time but if I had been doing mash potatoes I would of use them to make a gravy.
    last 30 minutes
  • So here is our FireBoard Session. We cooked for 4 hours and 38 minutes. Our average temperature was 231F and as you can see the Bullseye was extremely consistent on temperature. We cook for 2 hours on top of the GrillGrates
    fireboard 1
  • We then wrapped in foil for 2 more hours.
  • We then let the ribs dry out for 30 more minutes.
  • Ribs are now done and the first thing we look for are they tender and not mushy. They sliced very well and were consistent all the way from the outside rib to the middle ribs.
    cut ribs
  • I then took some of the meat from an end rib and boy was it tasty. One big greasy thumbs up.
  • Now we look to make sure the rib is not dry and has a well-developed smoke ring. The ribs were not dry and had a great looking smoke ring.
  • The next and last test is the tug test.
  • The meat is NOT falling off the bone but as you bite the meat come CLEAN from the bone. We call that a clean tug. All I can say is the Bullseye does a great job of smoking ribs.

Rib Preparation

  • If our spare ribs have not been trimmed you need to square off the ribs so they are an St. Louis style cut. Besides that they look better it also makes them easier to cook and eat. Next, you need to remove the membrane. I use a butter knife to get under the membrane and then pull it off using a paper towel to get a better grip.
    st louis style ribs
  • Now cut the ribs in half so that they can fit in the pressure cooker. This is when I also make sure that they can fit into a half size foil pan.
    cut ribs in half
  • Now apply Killer Hogs rub to the ribs making sure you do both sides. Now stack ribs into the half size foil pan. As the ribs sweat the rub will really sick to the meat.
    apply rub to ribs
  • Now using the metal basket stack the ribs around the inside so it looks like the picture. This will allow the ribs to get the full benefit of the pressure cooker. Now insert basket with ribs into the pressure cooker. Now you add one cup of water to the pressure cooker. Now if you want ribs that have a little tug then set the cooker for 20 minutes. If you want it so the meat is falling off the bone then set the cooker for 30 minutes. Note: not all pressure cookers cook the same so you might have to try different time until you get it right.

Making the Sauce

  • While the ribs are cooking you now have time to make the sauce and it is really easy. Start by putting 4 to 5 oz. of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ (you can use whatever sauce you like) into a mixing dish. Then add about 10 drops of Sriracha Chili sauce. Again taste it as you add more drops until it has the heat you want.

The Cook

  • When the ribs are done remove them from the cooker and put them into a foil pan. At this time you will lather up the ribs with the BBQ sauce you just made. Make sure you cover every inch of these ribs. Also get the smoker or grill (in indirect heat mode) preheated to 250F. I use hickory wood or chips but again you can use whatever wood you would like
    lather up ribs
  • Put the ribs on the smoker or grill and let them go for 30 minutes. The pressure cooker has already cooked these ribs so all the smoker or grill is doing is adding a little char and smoke to the ribs.

  • These ribs came out great. The only thing they lacked was a smoke ring but the texture was right on. Very tender and moist but still had a very nice tug.

Instructions

Cook Preparation

  • Rinse ribs thoroughly. Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. I use a Paper towel to grip the membrane for removal. I put a light coat of Garlic powder on the ribs and then apply a generous amount of Killer Hog Rub. If you have the time let the rub sit on the ribs for at least two hours. Preheat smoker to 225-230 degrees. Smoke ribs for 3 hours. Mist ribs with apple juice hourly. After 3 hours, remove ribs from the smoker.

Foil Ribs

  • Lay down some heavy duty foil. This is important for normal foil is going to tear and you will end up with dry ribs and a real messy smoker or grill that you will have to clean. Most markets do not carry the heavy duty foil. Click on the Heavy Duty Foil in the ingredients above if you want to buy it from Amazon.
  • Squeeze on about 3 to 4 Tbsp of Parkay. Use Parkay and not butter as Parkay will not burn like butter will. Sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar over the Parkay. Squeeze on the Agave Nectar or Honey back and forth until ribs are covered evenly. Now pour on about 1 oz of Tiger sauce.
  • Make sure that you mix all the ingredients together with your fingers so that is a thick sauce and cover the top and back of the ribs. Once this is done wrap the foil tightly around the rack of ribs. Place the foiled ribs back on your smoker and cook for 2 more hours.

Finishing Ribs

  • After 2 hours, remove the foil from the ribs and place them back in the smoker. I like to mop my favorite sauce at this point. Mop them front and back. Cook ribs for another 30 minutes to 1 hour until done. A good indicator for doneness is if the meat starts to tear when you bend the rack of ribs slightly as you pick them up.
