Smoked Ribs

Remember a LONG time ago I was telling you how Kristen was going to smoke some ribs for me....well here's the pics of that and the jest of how to make them:
1) Using pliers, peel the membrane off the back of the ribs
2) Using dry ingredients rub into rinsed and dried ribs.
*There are a LOT of different recipes to use as a dry rub. The easiest is to buy a bottle of Clubhouse seasoning of your choice and sprinkle away. I think here we used Steakhouse Pepper (cause it's my favourite)
3) While rubbing the ribs, have half of your wood chips soaking in water (we used apple flavour)
4)Make foil packs of wood chips, half dry and half wet (about a handful of each)
5) Poke holes in foil.
6) Pre-heat bbq, then place wood chips on lower grill
7) When it starts to smoke add ribs to upper grill...lower heat as low as possible
8) Smoke packs should last about 50 minutes, then replace with your next pack. Continue smoking for approx. 2 hours and baste with your choice of bbq sauce when you change the smoke pack. Otherwise keep the lid on the grill CLOSED! You do not want the heat or smoke escaping.
10)And voila! Remove from grill and tent with foil for about 10 minutes to retain the juices.
And here you have the finished product...we barely got this picture cause we were eating away when we remembered....oops :) Serve with your favourite side dish.
Bon Appetite!

I don't even really like ribs but these were GREAT when we had them at your house last weekend (even tho' slightly overcooked...he he!)
