Who wants to help the new guy with RIBS?

I picked up a pack of baby backs from Sam's club on Friday and I need someone to help me. I plan on smoking them on Sunday for dinner. What is the most successful way to prep and cook these ribs. I want to do a dry rub and a minimal glaze on them when I cook them. I am a big fan of the Memphis style and I don't like a lot of sause on them.

So with all that being said.
What rub should I make?
Should I brine them first?
Should I make them all different?

Your help would be great.

Re: Who wants to help the new guy with RIBS?

I most of the time give my ribs a quick rinse with vinegar. Peal the membrane off, dust them down with pig powder or what ever rub I have on hand. I don't sauce them at all. Sauce is always on the side. No flipping, I just plop them on the WSM no water pan, bone side down at 250-275f and let them roll for about 4 hrs. yank them off and foil (some times) It's not as hard as you think. Hope this helps.

Re: Who wants to help the new guy with RIBS?

Don't brine.
Here's a generic rub that works on ribs well.
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
Smoke at 225 for 3 hours, wrap in foil with a little apple juice for 45 minutes to an hour (if you want them falling off the bone/mushy, allow more time in foil), finish naked for .... Until a toothpick goes into the meat like warm butter (they're done when they're done). add a light layer of sauce (Sweet Baby Rays).
Let them rest for 20 minutes or so before slicing.
Throw em on a hot grill if you want a lil bark to em.

Re: Who wants to help the new guy with RIBS?

Here is my version of a very basic Memphis-style rub:

Ingredients
3 Tbsp Dark brown sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp Garlic salt
2 tsp Ground black pepper
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp New Mexico chili powder
1 tsp Ground cumin

Method
Combine all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl.

Blend the rub ingredients well (I use a whisk).

Dust both sides of the ribs liberally and press (don't rub) it into the meat
30 minutes before they go on.

I hope this helps,
John

1/8 cup Cider vinegar
1/8 cup Mustard
1 Tbsp Hot sauce

Mix all ingredients in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.

Bring just to a boil.

Remove from the heat and cool.

Cinnamon is good for desserts and toast, who in the world would put Cinnamon in a rub, that's absurd!
