Pit Beast® Smoked BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe

  • A slab of St. Louis Style Pork Ribs
  • Pit Beast™ New England BBQ Rub
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Apple Cider 
  • Your favorite barbecue sauce
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Metal Pan (disposal aluminum meatloaf pans work great)
  1. Heat your smoker to 275° F and place a metal pan full of water inside the smoker (you can also use an oven for this recipe - you'll just lose that smokey goodness). 
  2. Remove the ribs from the package and dry with a paper towel.
  3. Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. Use a butter knife to get it started and pull with a paper towel. 
  4. It is suggested to trim the ribs down on all sides so the ribs are uniform and any excess fat or hanging meat is removed. 
  5. Coat the ribs lightly with yellow mustard front and back.
  6. Sprinkle a light to medium coating of Pit Beast™ New England BBQ Rub on all sides of the ribs and pat down. 
  7. Let ribs sit on the counter for 20 minutes.
  8. Place ribs meat side up in the smoker.
  9. Cook for two hours without opening the smoker.
  10. Spray ribs with a 50/50 mixture of apple cider vinegar and apple cider.
  11. Apply your favorite bbq sauce to the top of the ribs (I suggest thinning the sauce with white vinegar first).
  12. Let ribs smoke for another 20 minutes.
  13. Place a double layer of aluminum foil on the counter and spray foil with the 50/50 mixture of apple cider vinegar and apple cider.
  14. Pour a little bit of barbecue sauce over the cider and vinegar on foil.
  15. Remove ribs from smoker and place meat side down on foil.
  16. Wrap tightly and place foil-wrapped ribs back in smoker and meat side down.
  17. Cook for 1-2 hours more and until tender (test for tenderness after one hour by unwrapping ribs and probing with a toothpick near the center of the ribs and in-between the bones. If you have any resistance and the toothpick does not effortlessly go into the meat, let the ribs cook longer. Check again in 20-30 minutes.
  18. Once the ribs are probe (toothpick) tender, remove from smoker and let sit wrapped in foil on the counter for 30 minutes.
  19. Unwrap ribs and EAT.
