2racks baby back ribs,

14Oz.Franklin Texas Barbecue Sauce,

1rib grilling rack,

1small bag H-E-B Mesquite Briquets,

1H-E-B Mesquite Wood Chips, soaked in water for 30 minutes,


1Brush the Baby Back Ribs with the H-E-B Texas BBQ Sauce and place on a tray and set aside.

2 Stack 5 cups of the mesquite briquets on the opposite side of the grill bottom and light. Allow the coals to turn gray and ashen (325°F). Set the gas grill on low (burners on one side only) and place as many soaked mesquite wood chips in the smoker box. If using a gas grill, see your grill manufacturer’s instructions for smoking and make sure you have a full tank of gas before you start.

3 Place the 2 racks of ribs on the rib grilling rack and place on the grill rack away from the coals or gas burner. This is an indirect method of cooking as the ribs are placed away from the heat source. Cover the grill and smoke the ribs for 1 1/2 hours, adding 8 to 10 briquets and 1 cup of soaked wood chips every 30 minutes or as needed to keep the slow smoking fire going.

4 Remove the ribs from the smoker when tender (you should be able to remove a rib bone easily). Cut rib rack between the ribs and place on a platter and serve.
