    Smoked Iberico Rib Fingers

    I smoked up a mighty tasty snack the other day: Iberico Rib Fingers! It is what it sounds like: strips of meat cut out from between the ribs of the Iberico pig. Well marbled as usual, and with great flavor.

    Given the richness of the pork I decided to add a good amount of lemony tang, so I mixed my pork rub with Sumac in a 2:1 ratio. That turned out to be huge hit.

    There was no trimming or anything, I just applied my custom blend evenly on all sides.

    This was one for the offset smoker, so I fired it up and had it running at 120° C (250° F), using 100% oak wood.

    I placed the rib fingers on a wire rack so I could easily manage all of them with one hand. I smoked them for 45 minutes, then drizzled on some dark roasted syrup for the final caramelization phase. I threw in two more splits to get the fire going, then moved the meat to right over the hole where the hot air enters the food chamber. I seared them for a minute or two, flipping once.

    As soon as they were done I pulled them off, let them cool a bit, and then served. Mighty good snack, very juicy and great tasting! Loved the rub + Sumac blend. And I served it with Sriracha mayo (my current favorite sauce) and some fried onion.

    What do y'all think? Have you tried this cut before? I will definitely do this more often :-)

    Looks great! I had to google the culinary uses of sumac, the sumac species here is poisonous.


      I really like Iberico ribs. The meat is pretty thin but oh so tasty. Bet those fingerlings were good !!


        Oh yea,,,,ur money with those,,,👍👍👍


          No have not tried "Pig Fingers" but worth a try. Souse sounds good also.

            No, that would be too tedious. Didn’t notice when eating though.

          Lookin' good - very good.
