3 cups hickory or apple wood chips
vegetable oil, for brushing
Spicy Girls’ Dry Rub:
1/4 cup kosher salt
2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
1 tablespoon ground coriander
3 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons dried thyme
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
Hickory Barbecue Mop Sauce:
2 cups hickory barbecue sauce, store bought
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons dark molasses
Soak wood chips in cold water to cover for at least 30 minutes. Set up grill for indirect cooking. Prepare a medium fire in a charcoal grill or preheat one side of a gas or electric grill on medium. Drain chips and sprinkle half over the coals or place half in the grill’s smoker box. Place a disposable foil pan under the grate to catch drippings.
Brush grill grate with vegetable oil. Arrange ribs, meaty-side down, on the side of the grill without hot coals. Cover the grill and smoke-cook the ribs for 45 minutes. Turn ribs and add remaining wood chips. Cover and grill for another 45 minutes.
While ribs are grill-smoking, make Hickory Barbecue Mop Sauce. Combine store-bought hickory barbecue sauce, liquid smoke, maple syrup and molasses in a bowl. Stir well to combine.
When the ribs have cooked for a total of 11/2 hours, brush the ribs generously with the mop sauce. Using long-handled tongs, slide the ribs onto the grate directly over the hot coals. Grill, uncovered, 5 minutes. Turn the ribs over, baste again, and grill another 5 minutes. Cut between the bones, slicing the racks into individual ribs. Serve immediately.
Serves 6 to 8.
Ribs have double the flavor with a dry rub and then a great doctored sauce. Serve with fresh sliced tomatoes, grilled potatoes and sliced icy cold watermelon.
