Smoking ribs **added sauce recipe**

Posted by   + Show Post

For the first time ever. I only have a grill but I read about converting my grill to a smoker and it's really easy! So it's an indirect fire for the smoke flavor and they smoke for five hours. I am super excited. They have a dry rub on currently and later in the process, in the last hour, I'll sauce them. The sauce has chocolate and juniper berries. I found the berries at whole grocers and they were cheap too. I am so excited. I'm also making a double corn bread and baked beans. Ive already burnt myself and I just started this half an hour ago. It was a late BBQ start but I think it will be ok. Super excited about tonight's meal.

Southwest Riblets sauce

1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tbsp vegetable oil

6 dried juniper berries, crushed
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 cup water
2 tbs cider vinegar

They came out awesome. Moist in the middle. Fall off the bone. Five hours was a little too long so I cut it back a little. No leftovers though and we could definitely taste the smoke. They seriously were delicious.
