    Blasphemy Ribs

    Blasphemy Ribs

    Here is a new way to cook ribs that I am calling Blasphemy Ribs.

    Normally we smoke a whole rack of ribs, low and slow, for 5-6 hours. Then we cut them apart to eat them. Inspired by Meathead's Char Siu ribs, which are cut apart then cooked, I came up with this recipe.

    The advantages of this recipe and technique are:
    • The ribs cook much faster (half the time)
    • There's more surface area to absorb smoke and for the rub and sauce
    • More bark
    • Much easier to serve because they already cut apart
    • The ribs are juicy, tender, have a good bite and have much more smoke flavor.

    You can see from the pictures below that the smoke “ring” goes all the way to bone!

    To make this recipe you will need a smoker or grill that you can keep at a steady 225F. I use a pellet smoker (with a pellet blend of maple-hickory-cherry). If you use a grill, set it up for 2-zone cooking as we want to cook these over indirect heat.

    I have only made this recipe with baby back ribs, and the timings and temperature are tested for that. It took me many tries to get the timing right and it gives proven results, so please make it my way before you try anything else. Having said, that, others have found this also works for St. Louis cut ribs with the same temp and timings. I suspect full spares would behave the same.

    Rinse the rack of ribs and then remove the membrane. Cut the ribs into singles. This is much easier to do from the back as you can see the bones.

    Put them in a gallon zip lock bag with the rub. The rub is my version of Meathead’s Memphis Dust. My version adds back the salt used in the original recipe because we want these ribs dry-brined. My recipe is at the end. If you use a different rub, make sure it has salt. Toss them well to coat and then put them in the refrigerator for 6 hours (or longer). I try to do mine the day before. Every few hours, turn the bag over to make sure the ribs get an even coating of the rub.

    When you are ready to cook, put them on a grill pan with holes. They really don’t want to stand up, so I gave up trying and now just lay them on their side. (See the picture below.) If you use a stainless steel pan, prep the pan with a light coating of oil to make cleanup easier and to make sure the ribs can be removed as easily and cleanly as possible.

    Smoke them at 225F for 2.5 hours. Apply BBQ sauce at 2 hours in, so it bakes on for half an hour. I use bottled sauce and right now my favorite is Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory and Brown Sugar, but the original is good too. Baste the sauce on as heavy or light as you like, getting it on the edge facing up and on the top (which will be facing sideways). I have experimented with saucing the top and side, then turning the rib over to sauce the side that is down. I didn’t find that it was worth the effort.

    At the 2.5 hour mark, remove from the smoker and serve. The total time here is 2.5 hours. The timing and temperatures are critical to success. Let them go longer and you will overcook them. Since they are individual, the margin for error is much smaller than for a whole rack.

    Mark’s Blasphemy Rub:
    6 tbs turbinado sugar (aka sugar in the raw)
    2 tbs paprika
    1 tbs sea salt (table salt grind)
    1 tbs granulated garlic powder
    1.5 tsp black pepper
    1.5 tsp granulated onion powder
    .5 tsp ground ginger


    This amount of rub will last for 2-3 batches of Blasphemy Ribs.

    Ribs on the pan (cooked):

        Great idea, and great results. I've been thinking about doing that - you may have pushed me over the edge.

            Nice cook. Have not seen you post for a while. Welcome back. Did they become tender with such a short cook, or remained quite chewy?

                      Do you pull them based off time alone or do you attempt to take their temperature?

                          I think you could thermapen somewhere. I find it's hard to trust with single ribs unless you check several, in several spots.

                          You just shook up my whole plan, mgaretz ! That may not be a bad thing. I've got 6 racks of baby backs to cook tomorrow morning. Have to turn 40 bones in for people's choice and 8 in a box for the contest. I was going to hang in the drum, but I may hang a while then finish them this way. Thanks so much for sharing and good to "see" you in the Pit!

                        The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

                        the good one grill

                        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

                        Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                        Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                        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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                        The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

                        Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                        Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.

                        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
