3-2-1 Baby Back Ribs Recipe On The Smoker

by Hank Coleman

Traeger Smoker GrillI’ve recently bought a Traeger Texas Pellet Grill3-2-1 Baby Back Ribs Recipe On The Smoker to barbecue and smoke meat. This has quickly become my new hobby.

So, I thought that I would document some of my successes….and failures here on Money Q&A as I learn to be a backyard barbecue grill master. I hope you enjoy these couple of recipes and pictures of what I’ve been up to on my off time.

Here is the first recipe that I’ve tried on the Traeger Smoker, 3-2-1 Baby Back Ribs Recipe. They are super easy to make and taste great!

Ingredients
  1. 2 racks baby back pork ribs (about 5 pounds total), trimmed
  2. 1/3 cup yellow mustard
  3. 1/2 cup apple juice (divided use), plus more if needed
  4. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  5. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  6. 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  7. BBQ Sauce
  8. 1/3 cup honey, warmed
Instructions
  1. If your butcher has not already done so, remove the thin papery membrane from the bone-side of the ribs by working the tip of a butter knife or a screwdriver underneath the membrane over a middle bone. Use paper towels to get a firm grip, then tear the membrane off.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the mustard, 1/4 cup of apple juice and the Worcestershire sauce. Spread thinly on both sides of the ribs; season with any rub of your choosing.
  3. Smoke The Ribs For 3 Hours
  4. Smoke the ribs, meat-side up, for 3 hours.
  5. Bake The Ribs In Foil For 2 Hours
  6. Transfer the ribs to a rimmed baking sheet and set the temperature to 225 degrees F.
  7. Sprinkle half the brown sugar on the rack, then top with half the honey and half of the remaining apple juice.
  8. Cook Ribs For 1 More Hour
  9. Brush the ribs on both sides with BBQ Sauce, discard the foil, arrange the ribs directly on the grill grate, and continue to grill until the sauce “tightens”, which will be 30 minutes to 1 hour more.

The 3-2-1 method is tried and true……BUT that being said you don’t have to take 6 hours to make baby back ribs. I’ve been smoking ribs for years, and have been following more of the higher heat competition method seen on shows like BBQ Pitmasters. I crank the heat up to 275-300, and smoke ’em for about 2 hours, then wrap them in foil for 1 hour, then firm them back up by putting them on the grill with the sauce (to let it caramelize) for about 15-20 minutes. Fantastic smoked babybacks in less than 3.5 hours!
