So this weekend usually markes our local rib cook-off. While it is wonderful and we attended for many years, it just isn’t all that affordable. And since my husband makes way better ribs anyhow we decided to make our own. We threw 3 slabs of st louis pork ribs from Costco on the Traeger Pellet Grills. Of course 3 slabs are too many for a family of 5, however, we will have a slab and a half for leftovers, which is fine by me!
My husband, Josh, slathered the ribs with Kinders BBQ Brown Sugar Rub, then we smoked the ribs for 3 hrs on the Traeger with Hickory flavored Pellets. Later we cooked the ribs for 2 hrs at 225º F. What we had was a nice crisp outside with a juicy inside. It was way worth the wait!
