Ingredients

2 sides pork back ribs

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

1/4 cup barbecue rub, store-bought or homemade

1/3 cup barbecue sauce

Method

Brush ribs with mustard.

Sprinkle with rub. Place on grill when temperature is about 225 to 250 F.

Smoke for three hours, then try the break test: If you bend the ribs and they start to break, they’re done.

At this point, brush with barbecue sauce and continue to grill until ribs are well glazed – 15 to 30 minutes longer depending on heat of smoker.
