Yields2 Servings
Prep Time2 hrs 15 minsCook Time3 hrsTotal Time5 hrs 15 mins

 2 slabs St. Louis Style ribs
 yellow mustard
 4 tablespoons BBQ rub
 BBQ sauce

1

Remove the membrane from the backside of each slab.

2

Rub the ribs with yellow mustard and your favorite BBQ seasoning. Let rest on a sheet pan while you're lighting the grill.

3

Light your coals with a chimney starter. Let burn for 10-15 minutes. Dump into the basket of the Barrel House Cooker. Set the intake to your altitude setting. Set the barrel onto the base, and let the coals burn for another 5-10 minutes with the lid open. Place the H-frame in the barrel.

Find the second bone from the top, and pierce a hook below that point through the meat. Repeat with the other slab.

5

Hang the ribs on the H-frame. Close the lid and smoke for 2 ½, until the meat starts to pull away and show about 1/2-inch of the bones.

Pull up from the smoker and brush on all sides with barbecue sauce. Return to the smoker for 30 minutes.

7

Remove from the smoker. Let rest for 15-30 minutes. Slice and serve.

TIPS

The easiest way to remove the membrane from ribs is to peel up a small piece with a knife. Then, grab that piece using a paper towel, and pull it off the rack. The paper towel provides extra grip, so the membrane doesn't slip out of your fingers.
