The Basic Fundamentals

Removing the top 1/2-inch portion of the slab will make it easier to cut the ribs into individual pieces. Start the procedure by using a freshly sharpened chef knife & a sturdy cutting board that has been secured with a damp towel underneath for safety.

1 cup hickory wood chips 
1 {3-lb} slab St. Louis-Style spare ribs
Texarkana Dry Rub
2 {12-oz} packages sliced bacon

Soak the wood chips in water for about 30 minutes. Drain. Place in heavy-duty foil & make a packet. Poke a few holes in the foil. Set aside. Pull the thin membrane from the backside of the ribs. Slice away 1/2-inch from the top of the slab then cut into individual rib portions. Sprinkle with the Texarkana Dry Rub. Wrap two slices of bacon around each rib.

Build a fire with the charcoal & push it over to one side of the grill. Add the packet of wood chips. Top with the grill grate. Place the ribs over the empty side to utilize an indirect heat cooking method. Top with the lid & adjust the vents in order to maintain a temperature between 225 to 275 degrees. Cook the ribs over indirect heat 1 hour & 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 185 to 190 degrees. You’re looking for a pink smoke ring in the pork. Be sure the side closest to the heat isn’t cooking too quickly. Rotate the ribs around the grate, if necessary. Once the ribs reach the correct temperature, remove them from the grill. 

The Extra Point

Change the seasoning blend for a different flavor. Look to The Essential Guide To Crafting An Impeccable Spice Blend for pointers on how to make your own.

Run The Option

This classic seasoning blend is relatively versatile as freshly snipped herbs may be substituted if they are available. Increase the ratio to 1 tablespoon for the best flavor.

1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Stir together all of the ingredients. Use as directed.

The Extra Point

Use the seasoning blend when grilling chicken kabobs or pork tenderloin for equally tasty results.

The first step when preparing a slab of ribs anytime is being certain the thin membrane on the backside of the ribs is removed. If it is left unattended to, all of your time & effort will be lost as the ribs will have a tough bite to them. Bourbon & Cherry Coke Ribs details this particular method if you’re in need of a refresher. Once that has been accomplished, they may be broken down further & wrapped with bacon for additional flavor. Here’s what you should know.

Cut the slab in half & work with one piece at a time. Slice away a 1/2-inch from the top of the pork using a sharp boning or chef knife. You’ll be cutting through the soft bone so be certain the cutting board has a damp towel underneath it to keep it from moving during the procedure & apply additional pressure to the knife so it cuts all the way through more easily.

Next, cut the ribs in half & work with smaller portions. Turn the ribs to the backside to gage where the bones are located then make the cut.

Finally, portion all of the pork to create individual ribs. Follow the natural line of the bone to ensure they are cut neatly. Sprinkle the ribs with the Texarkana Dry Rub. Wrap two pieces of bacon around each rib being certain it is entirely encased. It is not necessary to secure with a wooden pick as it will naturally adhere well. Additional seasoning may be used over the ribs & the bacon for extra flavor, if desired. Follow the instructions as outlined in the recipe procedure to smoke them properly.
