I am thinking I'll brine them for about 2 hours and then dry and refrigerate until tomorrow. At which point I will rub mustard into them and then let them dry for a couple hours before I give them the BBQ dry rub seasoning and then quick and hot sear on them on the BBQ, followed by a couple hours low temp smoke and then wrap them in foil and cook until done. They are done when a tooth pic will poke through like Butta
I haven't come up with a plan for the dry rub yet but I will post it when I do.
I used to make my own dry rub, just about like you've got going on. It's good, no doubt.
But, I must say I've since given up and now purchase pre-mix. The main reason is I'm getting lazy. There are a lot of spices you have to have in stock. I found they would go stale after a short time, or I would always be missing something and fudge it anyway, never really happy with it. Also, my wife was placed on a low-sodium diet, so that kind of killed it right there...
...until I found this: <broken link removed>
It is by far and away the best dry rub I've ever experienced, especially for ribs. Best of all, it's "low-sodium". A little goes a long way, give it a try sometime.
Got 3 racks of baby backs on the smoker now for the wife. I asked her what she wants for dinner, I could cook, or we could go somewhere..... she had a hard time between ribs and pulled pork sammies..... gotta love it when the wife would rather have your BBQ than a fancy dinner at a restaurant. The ribs she loves the most are a bit different though. No dry rub, you make a wet mix of smoked paprika, brown mustard,spices, and peach gelatin. Smoke it a few hours first then smear this stuff on it. Then after a few hours you wrap then in foil with an apple juice and butter mixture. Then finally remove them and grill them with a BBQ sauce and apricot mixture. They are a sweet rib, but damn they're good. She didn't like ribs until I had her try these. ..... now she asks for them when she can have anything.
