It's not a barbecue without a couple racks of ribs!


- 6 pounds pork baby back ribs

- 4 tablespoons Yellow Mustard

- 1/2 cup Rufus Teague Meat Rub

- 1 Bottle Rufus Teague Honey Sweet BBQ Sauce


  1. Remove membrane on back of ribs. Use your (clean) hands to lovingly work mustard on both sides of ribs. Now generously cover both sides in Rufus Meat Rub.

  2. Get your smoker dialed in to 230º F and place ribs boneside down on rack. Let them cook for 3 hours.

  3. Pull the ribs off and wrap in aluminum foil. Then toss them back on smoker for 2 more hours.

  4. Remove that foil and place those naked ribs back on smoker for one more hour.

  5. For the last 15 minutes of the cook, paint ribs with Honey Sweet Rufus Teague BBQ Sauce.

  6. Carefully cut in-between each rib. Brush with a bit more sauce. Pile on a plate and stare briefly with meat-hungry eyes before digging in!
