Baby Back Ribs

Baby Back Ribs on The Big Green Egg ®
Serves 4
It's the beginning of National Grilling Month and a 3-day holiday weekend that's known for outdoor cooking and celebrations! Chef Matt South, the manager of our East Cobb store, has taken his dad's delicious rib recipe and adapted it to work beautifully on his own outdoor cooker of choice: the Big Green Egg. Using the "2-2-1 method" and a proven rib rub (Arthur Bryant's), Matt has accomplished rib perfection. Or at least we think so, we'll let you be the judge once you try it yourself!

Ingredients
  1. 1 slab of Baby Back Ribs
  2. 1 tsp Turbinado Sugar
  3. 1Tbsp honey
  4. ¼ cup yellow mustard
  5. ¼ cup apple juice
  6. Arthur Bryant’s Meat and Rib Rub
Instructions
  1. Remove the membrane off the back of the rack of ribs. This is best done by grabbing the membrane on the smaller side of the ribs with a paper towel and pulling it off. If you have trouble getting a hold on the membrane you can use a boning knife to start the cut and then grab the membrane with the paper towel.
  2. Once the membrane is removed, use your boning knife to trim up some of the excess fat from the top and sides of the ribs.
  3. Spread the mustard on the ribs, both sides. This is best done by putting on a pair of gloves and just getting in there and rubbing them.
  4. Liberally sprinkle the ribs with a nice thick coating of the Arthur Bryant’s rub on the meat side, and a little bit less rub on the bone side.
  5. Heat the egg to 240 degrees with the wood chunks mixed in throughout. Set the egg up for indirect cooking with the plate setter (Conveggtor).
  6. Put the ribs on the egg meat side up and cook at 240 indirect for 2 hours.
  7. Take the ribs off the egg and place on heavy duty aluminum foil meat side up. Sprinkle the meat with the turbinado sugar. Next you will use the honey to draw a circle on the foil around the ribs, then you will then create a little pouch with the foil. The honey will mix with the liquid and rain back down onto the ribs giving them a great taste and making them more tender. Leave 1 side a little bit open.
  8. Put the ribs in foil back onto the smoker, at this time add your apple juice and seal the pouch up. Cook at 240 for another 2 hours.
  9. Unwrap the ribs and put them back onto the smoker for 45 minutes to an hour depending on how tender you want them. If you wish to add sauce please do so in the last 30 minutes of cooking.
Notes
  1. Eat and enjoy.
