It’s no secret that we’re in love with smoking on the Big Green Egg. And with our handy ThermoWorks gear, (i.e. DOT and Thermapen Mk4 both in screamin’ Green) smoking and grilling to temperature has gotten a whole lot more accurate.
So when I spotted a post on ThermoWorks blog about competition style BBQ ribs, I just had to put our BGE to work reproducing those delicious BBQ pork ribs.
We sourced our pork ribs from two vendors: our local Kroger grocery store (for back loin ribs) and a butcher shop, Matador Meats, in Plano (for St Louis cut ribs).
I applied our cajun-style dry spice rub to the ribs and refrigerated until we were ready for meat to hit the grill.
Here’s a reprint of my Cajun/Blackening Spice recipe:
- 2-3 tablespoons paprika
- 2 tablespoons chili powde
