If you’re like me and don’t have a smoker or a grill or even a deck for those items anyways, there’s a simple way to get homemade smoked ribs. They’re juicy, delicious, and combined with my homemade mustard bbq sauce they’re AMAZING!
What you will need for the smoker: a bag of wood chips (apple, cherry, mesquite, or hickory), a roasting pan, 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 cup water, a roasting rack, a roll of aluminum foil, and a rack of ribs or whatever you choose to smoke.
Set the oven to 225 degrees.
Fill the bottom of the roasting pan with the wood chips and then pour the vinegar and water all over them. Place the roasting rack on top of the chips and place the meat on the rack.
(Marinade the meat in whatever you like. I used marjoram, garlic salt, salt, pepper, ground mustard, paprika, cayenne, cinnamon, and brown sugar.)
Create a tent over the meat and pan to insulate it (Foil the length way and then short ways and then length way again so that no heat can come out).
Bake for 3 hours and I promise you wont be disappointed!
Mustard BBQ Sauce: 2 galic cloves chopped, 1 small shallot chopped, 2 Tbsp butter, 1 cup white vinegar, 1/2 a bottle of grey poupon djon mustard, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp black pepper.
In a sauce pan melt the butter and then saute the garlic and shallot until translucent. Add the vinegar and bring to a boil. Whisk in the mustard and bring to another boil. Add the brown sugar and boil again. Lastly add the garlic salt and pepper and reduce down about 1/3 of the original level until the sauce starts to become thick!
This is probably my all time favorite BBQ sauce ever! It’s tangy, not to much mustard flavor and is the ultimate BBQ sauce for pork!!
