Videos: Dry Style Baby Back Ribs

Chef Tom smokes up some amazingly tender dry style baby back ribs. Rubbed with a little Plowboys BBQ Yardbird and Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ride, they had the perfect balance of sweet and heat while retaining an amazing texture.

Dry Style Baby Back Ribs Recipe



Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 pellet grill to 275ºF. Rub a thin layer of House of Q Slow Smoke Gold BBQ Sauce & Slather over all surfaces of the ribs. Apply a layer of Plowboys BBQ Yardbird Rub. Place the Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ride Carne Asada Seasoning in a spice mill and grind a layer over the ribs.

Transfer the ribs to the smoker. Smoke until the meat is very tender and the meat begins to move freely from the bone when twisted. Remove from the cooker. Slice & serve.

      It’s going to be the same time and temp, but with a dry environment like an oven, you may want to put a small water pan on the bottom rack.

    So was in New Orleans and went on a gator tour, and the talk about how good gator ribs are! Could you do a class on that?

    oh BTW you kick ass I have learned so much from you! And I love my Yoder YS640!

    Would love your take on alligator ribs.
