Delicious smoked pork ribs with an amazing glaze. They’re cooked in apple juice the last two hours which made these fall-off-the-bone good!
Summer! We’re right in the thick of the season and we love it. We recently built an outdoor kitchen so we’re outside all the time it seems. One of the cool things about the kitchen is the “garage” we had built-in for our smoker. It’s out of the way, yet we can pull it out any time we want without going through any hassles. Which is what we did this past weekend when we made these delicious smoked pork ribs. Smoking ribs is the best way to go in my opinion.
It’s a little dark, but you can see the “garage” carved out under the kitchen counter. It’s so convenient to keep it there and it’s out of the way. This clever idea was hubby’s and it was a nice addition to the kitchen.
Smoking meats (especially ribs) will make you the envy of the neighborhood. Why? Because the wonderful aroma spreads out making your neighbors want to be your friend. When we lived in the townhouse a couple of years ago, we would smoke our ribs on the driveway since we didn’t have a yard. I’ll tell you, we became fast friends with all the neighbors! Even a few neighborhood cats too.
Ribs can be challenging since it’s easy to get them dried out. The key here is to cook them the last couple of hours in a pan covered or wrapped in foil in a bath of apple juice. The juice flavor keeps the ribs moist while giving them a complimentary sweet (but not too sweet) flavor that goes so well with barbecue.
