Baby Back Ribs Recipe

Recipe By: Kevin Rutherford | Lets Truck

Servings: 2

Prep Time: 20 min

Cooking Time: 4 hrs

Total Time: 4 hrs 20 min

USWM Shopping List: Baby Back Ribs


For the Rub

  • 2 Tbl salt
  • 1 Tbl pepper
  • 1/2 Tbl granulated garlic
  • 1/2 Tbl Granulated onion
  • 1/2 Tbl smoked paprika
  • 1/2 Tbl chipotle chili powder

Also Needed

  • Pink Butcher Paper
  • Smoking Wood, I prefer Traeger Gourmet Blend


1. Mix all of the ingredients for the rub and use generously to cover the ribs. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

2. Set your smoker for 195 degrees and I like to use heavy smoke for the first 3 hours. Add the ribs uncovered to the smoker.

3. After 3 hours remove the ribs and wrap them with Pink Butcher Paper. (You will not get the same results with foil)

4. You can continue in your smoker or I prefer to move indoors to my oven for the last step

5. Set smoker or oven to 350 degrees and cook wrapped ribs for an additional hour.
