INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large rack of baby back ribs

Sweet Espresso Ribs

This one is for the coffee lovers! The combination of espresso and brown sugar adds a thick layer of bark that tastes incredible, combining the bitter quality of dark roasted coffee beans with the familiar sweet bite of brown sugar.

Preparation:

-Preheat the grill to 225.

-Wash, trim, dry, the ribs.

-Pull the silverskin off of your rib rack to get them ready for the rub.

-Add a light layer of olive oil to evenly coat the entire rib rack.

-Mix the dry rub ingredients in a bowl and sprinkle a thick coat over the entire rack (top and bottom).

-Place the rack in your smoker, and smoke for 2 hours at 225.

-Spray the ribs down with a diluted mixture of apple juice and water every half hour to maintain moisture (optional).

-After 2 hours, take off the ribs and get them ready to wrap. Add another layer of the espresso rub mixture and spread 2 tbsp of butter in small cubes over the top of the ribs, then wrap them tightly.

-Place them back on the smoker, face down, for 90min-2hrs until the bones start to really show on the back of the rack.

-Unwrap the foil, discard the juices, and apply a light layer of GMG Pitmaster sauce evenly across the ribs.

-Gently place the ribs back on your grill for approximately 60-90min. This will help create a thick layer of bark. Afterwards, cover them up and let them rest for at least 15 minutes.
