  • 1. Rinse off the ribs and pat dry.
    2. Remove the silver skin on back side of ribs. Slide a table knife under the silver skin or use your finger to peel the silver skin back anywhere along the rack. Lift and loosen it with the knife or your finger until you can grab it with a paper towel. Pull it off the ribs; it usually peels away in one large piece. It may take a couple try's to pull it all off until you get familiar with this process.
    3. Spread mustard over the ribs in a thin layer to create a barrier/bond for the rub to stick too. Don't worry, you won't taste any mustard it is just for a bond. Alternatively you could use some Worcestershire. 
    4. Add your favorite rub a coat the ribs. You can let this sit over night or place on the smoker right away.


  • 3-2-1 method. This means 3 steps over 6 hours.
    Step 1:
    * Place the ribs on the smoker at 225F to 250F and leave them alone for 3 hours
    Step 2:
    * Take out the ribs and wrap tightly in tinfoil. If they aren't wrapped tightly, they can boil in the foil and you don't want that. Before you close the foil completely, pour 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar with 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar on the ribs. Then place the foiled ribs back on the smoker for about 2 hours.
    Step 3:
    * Remove the ribs from the foil and place on the smoker and mop them with Bud's Bar-B-Que Sauce. Close the lid for 30 mins then mop one more time. Close the lid for another 30 mins. 
    Your ribs should be ready, if you want 'fall off the bone' type ribs you can leave them on until the ribs fall off when you try to pick the rack up from the smoker.
