    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.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
