Low and Slow Baby Back Ribs on a Pellet Smoker

One of my favorite things to smoke is Baby Back Ribs. Usually I smoke them in my Pit Barrel Cooker at a temperature between 275-325 degrees. But today I wanted to try to cook them low and slow. Using my pellet smoker I set the temperature to 225 degrees, and hopefully that will mean those racks of Ribs will have more time to absorb some smoke. Come see how they come out as I low and slow cook a couple of racks of Baby Back Ribs.


Baby Back Ribs

BBQ Rub of you choice

BBQ Sauce of your choice

Start by removing the membrane from the back side of the Ribs. Then apply your favorite BBQ Rub on both sides of the Ribs. Allow the Ribs to sit at room temperature while you allow your pellet smoker to preheat to 225 degrees.

Once you pellet smoker has reaches 225 degrees place your Ribs in the smoker. Smoke for 4-5 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 180-185 degrees. At this time baste the Ribs with you favorite BBQ Sauce. Increase the temperature of the smoker to 300 degrees. This will allow the sauce to caramelize.

Once the Ribs reach a temperature of 200 degrees remove and cover with foil. Allow to rest for 15 minutes. Slice and enjoy!
