1 rack Baby Back Rib
Louisiana Grills Sweet Heat Rub & Grill
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
A simple smoked rib recipe for when you don’t want a messy meal. A dry rub is a great option for those who think sauce overwhelms the natural pork flavors of baby back ribs. Our Louisiana Grills Sweet Heat Rub is a favorite because it doesn’t overpower the meaty and smoky flavors of the meat. Instead it is just enough sweet and heat to be a perfect compliment.
For deeper flavor penetration into the meat, we recommend applying the olive oil and then patting the Sweet Heat Rub into your rack and then let it sit for an hour in the refrigerator (Be sure to remove the membrane on the back of the rack prior to applying the rub). This will let the water-soluble ingredients dissolve and work their way into the meat. More time in the fridge equals more penetration.
Note: It is recommended to use Wisconsin Hickory Hardwood Pellets with this recipe!
If you wish to add sauce, do it 10 to 15 minutes prior to removing the ribs from the grill.
