I do not know if Rib sandwiches were famous before McDonalds launched their famous “McRib”, but I know my family grew on on those delicious ground pork rib shaped patties on a bun. They were not my favorite, but they were a quick easy meal for my family, and I wasn’t doing the work so who was I to judge! But now I am an adult and I love delicious food, so I took it upon myself to recreate this famous sandwich but elevate it to the BBQ glory that it deserves.

Baby backs are one of the most popular cuts of pork ribs, they are most often enjoyed when they are Messy to eat. Lots of restaurants that serve their ribs this way will serve them with wet naps, lemon water bowls, buckets for the bones and a direct line to the bathroom to wash your hands (and face) afterwards. Some rib enthusiasts will tell you that these types of ribs, served this way are over cooked and or “mushy” but if this is how you like, I say go for it! Do what you like and let the naysayers enjoy their stay on the bone ribs…. Just not at this party!
Hanging ribs is something that the top competition teams have been doing for quite a while. I mastered it in the summer of 2018 and took my skills to the World Championships that year as well. This tried and true method of making ribs helps provide an extremely even cook as well as speeds up the process because you can cook a little hotter than other methods.
For starters let me say that we all started making ribs on a BBQ or in the oven, so don’t be ashamed, you can make excellent ribs without a smoker. If you want to get a smoker there are introductory models that can make your job much easier, but if it’s not in the budget or you just don’t know where to begin then this recipe is for you. You can make this recipe in an oven too just omit the Amaze-N- Tube so you don’t smoke out your house. If you don’t have an Amaze-N Tube then you can also substitute a foil pouch with wet/soaked wood chips.
