Thread: Ribs, smoked then grilled

    Default Ribs, smoked then grilled

    Has anyone ever tried side ribs this way? At the restaurant where I
    worked when I was going to high school, the ribs were put into an
    electric smoker. A few times per week, maybe three times per week or
    so. When an order came in, they were put over charcoal (briquettes,
    not lump) sauced and served. They were a real hit.
    The manager, the general manager at the time though was a degreed
    asshole who didn't have the respect of anyone.
    I think that this method of cooking is great for restaurants, because
    you don't have to worry about ribs that are 2 days old. Just grill
    em' up. I wish I had their bbq sauce recipe though.
    The sweet rib recipe I know though. Through trial and error.
    They were smoked like their regular ribs. The sauce was this:
    Brown sugar, apple juice, and ginger ale. This was cooked down for
    about 30 minutes or so until it got a bit syrupy. When an order for
    sweet ribs came in, the ribs were dumped into this sauce and simmered
    for quite a while, about 15 to 20 minutes or so. We didn't get very
    many orders for sweet ribs. On a busy Saturday night, perhaps 5
    orders if that. They were pretty good though. In their own right.
    You see what they did though. They braised their pig tails in brown
    sugar, apple juice and ginger ale. Then they used that liquid to do
    their sweet ribs.

    This is a commonly used technique in restaurants. Par cook it with
    smoke, then finish on a grill right before service.

    Only done for the convenience of the server. If you're cooking it
    yourself you may as well do it right.

    yes, I use an electric smoker, then grill. Some people claim they are the
    best they ever had, but who knows what the heck they have been eating.

    I'm sure it beats the heck out of par-boiling them like a guy I know does.

    The last couple times I've smoked ribs in a WSM for a couple hours then
    sealed them in Aluminum foil and baked them for 2 hours at 225 and then did
    about 20 minutes on the gas grill for a little crisp and char. They've been
    some of the most moist and well smoked ribs I've done. Could be wrong but
    the baking seems to enhance the previous smoking process. I see, and taste,
    a more pronounced smoke ring and smoke flavor. And the couple hours in the
    oven imparts a glorious smoke perfume that lingers in the house a day or so.

    I know a guy with a commercial electric smoker. He does them for a
    few restaurants and caterers. I've had them several times finished
    over charcoal, lump, and a gas grill. The lump is the best but it's
    still not like smoking the whole time with lump/wood. They never got
    enough flavor and needed sauce.

    Thanks for that tip Lee. A few token veggies and some noodles and Viola!
    Asian soup. I suppose most folks just buy the Ramen in the single serve
    packages, but larger packages of plain noodles are available at all of the
    asian stores and probably in the ethnic sections of most big stores. I use
    the stuff a lot, but tend to forget because of my Pennsylvania Dutch
    heritage.

    That doesn't stop me from throwing in a few when I'm making stock from
    a mixture of bones. I often mix beef and chicken. If I've got a
    couple of pork bones, they'll go in it too.

    Back in the days when I did not know how to make good soup, I used ham
    and bones to make pea soup^. The results were not great. Now I use
    smoked ham hock and the peas soup is incredible.

    I think the OP was talking about pork broth as in "from boiling
    raw pork". Smoked hocks are an entirely different critter as I'm
    sure you well know.

    True enough.

    Surely somebody somewhere in the world must make pig soup that tastes good.
    Thing is, no matter how good it tastes, pig soup is never going to sound
    good!
