Smoke and spice make for a winning baby back combo. These pork baby back ribs are seasoned with a sweet and spicy rub, smoked over rich hickory wood and set with our smokin' Traeger 'Que BBQ sauce.

For the Rub: Combine all the rub ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to mix.
If your butcher has not already done so, remove the thin silverskin from the bone-side of the ribs by working the tip of a butter knife or screwdriver underneath the membrane over a middle bone. Use paper towels to get a firm grip, then pull the membrane off.
Sprinkle the rub over both sides of the ribs. You will need about 1-1/2 tablespoons of rub for each side.
When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 250℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Place the ribs bone-side down on the grill grate. Smoke the ribs until browned and very tender, and the internal temperature reaches 203°F.
Remove the ribs from the grill grate and let rest.
Increase the temperature of the Traeger to 375℉ and allow to preheat.
Brush the ribs with Traeger ’Que BBQ Sauce and grill for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the sauce has set.
Cut each rack into halves or individual ribs for serving. Enjoy!
