Anyone who says smoking is bad for you obviously hasn’t smoked their own baby back ribs. The slow-cooked meat simply falls off the bone with every bite, but nothing can ‘beet’ the homemade BBQ sauce. Made from scratch, this condiment includes red beet powder, apple cider vinegar and a few other tasty ingredients that blend together into a beautifully vibrant sauce with an unbeatably sweet taste.
Smoked Baby Back Ribs with Red Beet BBQ Sauce
Preheat smoker to 275 degrees F.
Season meat with rib rub. Let sit 15 minutes. Smoke ribs for 2 hours and 30 minutes. Remove and spray with apple juice.
On two large sheets of foil, arrange ribs. Top each with a few chunks of sliced butter, brown sugar and honey. Wrap each packet tightly. Place back in smoker for 2 hours.
In large pot, mix together BBQ sauce ingredients. Place sauce in smoker for 30 to 45 minutes.
Remove ribs from foil. Place back on grill. Coat with sauce. Continue cooking 30 more minutes.
