Memphis Ribs Rub Recipe Instructions

You’ll need a good set of ribs, make sure they’re nice and meaty.

Remove the membrane. I like to start off just using my finger to find the edge before using paper towel to remove the rest.

Next, we need to apply the rub.  For this recipe, I’m using Sucklebuster pork rub.  It has an amazing balance of flavor and tastes great.

Completely cover the ribs with rub.

Place the ribs in a sealed container and place in the fridge for 2 to 4 hours.  This will give the rub time to penetrate the ribs.

Next, you need to light a chimney of charcoal.

Set up the BBQ for indirect grilling.  

Now the ribs have been in the fridge for a few hours, it’s time to cover them with a light dusting of brown sugar.

The sugar will add a little bit of sweetness but all give the ribs a nice glaze.

Coat the ribs with a final layer of rub.

Place the ribs opposite the charcoal, the BBQ should be sitting at around a temp of 275f or 135c

Add your choice of wood, I’m using hickory.

Cover with the lid and cook for a total of 3 to 4 hours.

About an hour into the cook, we need to add some moisture back into these ribs by using a basic mop.

In a bowl add,

  • 1 cup of apple juices.
  • 1 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of yellow mustard
  • Mix together

Mop the ribs every half hour, this will help keep the ribs moist.

Once the ribs have a nice color and the meat is tender, it is time to take them off the BBQ.

Layer a few sheets of foil and brush on a small amount of the mopping juice.

Cover the ribs with the foil and let them sit for half an hour.

Finish by covering the ribs with another layer of rub before slicing.
