    Steps

    • 1

      For the Rub: Combine all the rub ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to mix.
    • 2

      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.
    • 3

      Sprinkle the rub over both sides of the ribs. You will need about 1-1/2 tablespoons of rub for each side.
    • 4

      When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 250℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
