Maple Brown Sugar Bacon Ribs
What happens when you combine pig candy and barbecued ribs? You get bacon ribs – the tastiest new trend for your summer backyard barbecue party.
Servings: 12 Ribs
- 1 slab St. Louis style pork ribs
- 12 slices bacon
- 2 tbsp barbecue rub
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 10 dashes hot sauce optional
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
Remove the silverskin from the back of the ribs. Cut the slab into single bones.
Sprinkle the ribs liberally with barbecue rub.
Wrap each bone with a slice of bacon. Lightly dust with more rub.
Smoke on a 275F-degree grill with maple wood chunks until the ribs reach an internal temperature of 190F degrees, about 2 hours.
In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup and hot sauce. Brush onto the ribs. Sprinkle each rib with brown sugar. Continue smoking for 1 hour.
