What's this?

Simplify cooking ribs with Traeger’s Simple Smoked Ribs recipe. Start by smoking baby backs for 4 to 5 hours on your Super Smoke or Smoke setting. Then wrap the rack in foil and smother in BBQ sauce--that’s all you need to do for fall-off-the-bone perfection.

Ingredients

  • 3 Rack baby back ribs

  • 3/4 Cup Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub

  • 3/4 Cup Traeger 'Que BBQ Sauce

Steps

  • 1

    Peel membrane from the back side of ribs and trim any excess fat.
  • 2

    Season both sides of ribs with Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub, about 1/4 cup per rack.
  • 3

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 4

    Place ribs on the grill and smoke for 3 to 4 hours.
  • 5

    When the internal temperature registers between 160℉-165℉, remove ribs from the grill and increase the grill temperature to 350℉.
  • 6

    Place about 1/4 cup of Traeger ‘Que BBQ Sauce on a large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil, then place a rack of ribs meat side down on top and wrap tightly. Repeat with each rack.
  • 7

    Place the wrapped ribs back on the grill and cook for 45 minutes or until internal temperature registers 204°F.
  • 8

    Remove from grill and let rest 20 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
