Smoked Baby Back Ribs Recipe:
We bought a smoker recently and we are addicted! We’ve been using it regularly… trying to perfect our smoked BBQ recipes. We were able to arrive at a fantastic rib recipe… ahh it’s really so good… and I’m sharing that with you today!
I know that not everyone has a smoker. They can be a pricy investment but here are my thoughts on our decision to get one recently:
It has been very well worth the price to have delicious, smoked meat available as we please…
Another bonus: just like the crockpot a smoker is awesome because… it does the cooking for you! AKA make your life easier by simplifying your dinner/ BBQ plans. In other words – like the crockpot, a smoker will cook your food slowly and for a long period of time, so that you can go about your day and come back at 6 PM for a prepared meal with an amazing, restaurant quality smoked flavor.
Today… we’re making a brisket. I’m on the couch writing this post, and I know that my smoker is cooking dinner for me. Really, it’s awesome. If I can’t convince you to purchase a smoker using the link I provided… I hope I can convince you to just CONSIDER purchasing a smoker someday in the future… and then you one day when you decide to make the plunge… I KNOW you will be a happy camper… and you will wonder why on earth you didn’t get one sooner. That’s how I felt anyway.
I really do love our smoker though.. so if you want to check it out, click that link! It’s easy to clean, it gets the job done, and my food has been tasting so very delicious.
Check out the recipe below. It’s perfect for football season, and we made it with our clean ingredient homemade BBQ sauce, which I obviously recommend for best and most healthy results… but you can make it using any favorite BBQ sauce that you have.
I’ve also included a video tutorial for this one, because I know using a smoker can take some getting used to the first couple of times.
