  • ½ cup John Henry Pecan dry rub
  • 1 rack baby back pork ribs 3-4 lbs or so


  • Prepare Grill. Light coals in a pile or basket on one side and heat to about 325°F
  • While the grill is heating, Remove ribs from package. Dry off and remove membrane from the back. Do NOT skip this!
  • GENEROUSLY completely cover both side of the ribs with dry rub. Let sit until rub glazes over. Add more dry rub. I normally use about ½ cup but not necessarily exact. You just want to make sure the meat is generously covered.
  • When the coals are lit and grill is hot, place ribs on the grill away from the coals.
  • Cover and let smoke until meat pulls away from the bones. Approximately 4 hours. The longer the better. Monitor grill temperature throughout. As long as the heat above 250°F, let them smoke. When/if the heat drops (sometimes it never gets below that point), add more coals. Monitor until finished.
  • Remove, cut, and serve!
