ANN’S Famous BBQ Rib Recipe

I was inspired to create this recipe by watching Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives (Triple Ds) on the Food Network. You know how you feel like you cook all the time, acting like using BBQ and spices from the store is really cooking? Me too! After watching a BBQ all-star episode of Triple Ds, I decided to concoct my own rub. I hope you enjoy it!

  10. 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme

  12. 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
ANN’s Sweet Honey Glaze
  1. Use this to coat the ribs after they have been completely cooked.
  1. 1 cup ketchup
  2. 1/2 cup dark molasses
  3. 1/4 cup white vinegar
  4. 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  5. 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  6. 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  7. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  8. 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  9. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  10. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  11. 1/8 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
  12. 1 cup honey
  13. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, stir well, and simmer for 15 minutes to reduce and thicken.
  1. 1. Prepare your smoker for indirect grilling at 275 degrees Fahrenheit, using maple and hickory wood for flavor. Season the ribs with the rub.
  2. 2. Put the ribs into the smoker, meaty side up for two hours.
  3. 3. Flip the ribs and cook another hour.
  4. 4. Remove the ribs to a platter.
  5. 5. Take a really thick piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil (large enough to wrap a slab of ribs) and slather about 1/3 cup of honey on each sheet, spreading it where the ribs will lie.
  6. 6. Place the ribs meaty side down and add more honey on top of the slab. Now crimp the edges of the foil and pour 1/2 cup of apple juice in the bottom. Do this for all three slabs. Loosely close the packets around the ribs and lay them back in the smoker.
  7. 7. Cook another 90 minutes. Carefully unwrap the packets and take out the ribs.
  8. 8. Place the ribs back on the smoker, raising the temperature to 350 degrees.
  9. 9. Brush with the glaze or barbecue sauce and flip several times for another 20 minutes.
