Texans are very serious about their barbecuing and we all agree that nothing beats the taste of slow-smoked pork baby back ribs cooked to the point where the meat pulls off the bone with one good tug of your teeth. Our Honey Red Grilling Glaze is the perfect compliment and keeps those ribs good and juicy while smoking.


Serves 4-6.

2 racks pork baby back ribs
Fredericksburg Farms East Texas Rib Rub
Fredericksburg Farms Honey Red Grilling Glaze


Build a hardwood charcoal fire in a barbecue pit with an indirect firebox, or use a charcoal grill, building the fire in one side of the fire pit. Allow the coals to burn down to the point where they are glowing red, covered by a layer of white ash. Scatter a generous portion of the East Texas Rib Rub over both sides of the ribs. Using your hands, rub the spice mix into the meat.

Cook the ribs by indirect heat. If using a charcoal grill, cook them on the opposite side of the grill from the fire. Baste often with the Honey Red Grilling Glaze to form a “sticky” glaze. Turn the ribs about every 20 minutes, cooking for a total of about 2 to 2½ hours. When you bend the slab of ribs, the meat should almost come away from the bones. Slice into individual ribs and serve.
