Homemade Dry Rubbed Smoked St. Louis Ribs!

This blog post comes to us from Marci Gisler, author of the awesome blog  www.lifeofthefarmerswife.com  For more of her recipes, and home ideas Go check out her blog!

 Nothing screams summer time more than the smoker heating up outside for a BBQ with a great rack of ribs filling the backyard with a delicious aroma.  Our go-to rib recipe is St. Louis Spare Ribs with a dry rub on them.  My husband did quite a few test runs on the Traeger until he perfected his dry rub and has been using it on his ribs ever since.  The rub consists of the perfect blend of sweet, salty and spice.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 3.5 hours on the smoker + 30 minutes rest time

Serves: 4 people per rack of ribs

Pellets: Apple or Oak flavor

Dry Rub Ingredients:

**Warning: This makes a lot of rub! We like to make large batch so that we don't have to make a new batch each time we grills or smokes meat. You may cut the recipe down if you do not want to make that much.

     1/2 cup Brown Sugar

     1/2 cup Salt

     1/2 cup Granulated Sugar

     1/4 cup Chili Powder

     2 tablespoons Garlic Powder

     1/3 cup Black Pepper

     1/4 cup Ground Mustard

     2 tablespoons Cumin

     1/4 cup Paprika

     1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper


For the “Mop Sauce”:

     A spray bottle with 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and a 1/4 cup of vegetable oil



1.       Prepare the ribs by removing the membrane on the bone side of meat.  This allows the smoke to penetrate the meat.

2.      Trim any excess fat off of the meat side of the ribs.

3.      Cover and coat both sides of the ribs with the dry rub.




4.      Cover the entire rack of ribs in foil and let them sit 1-2 hours in the refrigerator.

5.      Pull the meat out of the refrigerator and start your smoker.  Let the Traeger heat to 225 degrees.

6.      Place the ribs on the grill, bone side down.

7.      Once an hour, spray the "Mop Sauce" to add moisture to the meat.

8.     Let the ribs cook for 3.5 hours on the smoker or when the meat pulls in from the bone about a 1/2".

9.      Pull the ribs off the grill and wrap them in foil for about 30 minutes.

I tried this. The rub was a bit salty or I may have put too much. Otherwise it is an excellent rub. I split the paprika between half sweet and half smoked. Also one of the slabs was perfect tenderness after I took it out of the foil where the other two were not as tender as I would have liked. Another thing, I strarted on 250 by accident the first hour then reduced to 225. I will yry this again.I'm not a big "fall of the bones" guy. I like my ribs with a little bark but still tender and not dry. Thanks for this recipe!

I prefer to marinate the meat with apple cider or just any light beer, cannot tell you how breathtaking the taste is!!!

The Chinese government also persists in violating international law: most noticably within the way it handles North Korean refugees inside its territory. It refuses to admit North Korean refugees within its borders, and rather sends them back to North Korea, exactly where they can encounter imprisonment, torture and also execution.<br />Even although China is actually a party to the UN Convention relating for the Position of Refugees, China continues to depart North Korean refugees no option. When they try and remain in China while avoiding detection, they surrender all basic rights. They're unable to access health-related treatment and have no recourse to justice without exposing by themselves to hazardous repatriation. For that reason they may be vulnerable to all kinds of physical and sexual abuse. If they're detected and repatriated, their fate back in North Korea can be even worse.
