Total time: 
Serves: 1 rack
  • 1 slab baby back ribs
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 3 tbsp pecan wood chips
  1. Combine the salt, brown sugar, paprika, chinese five spice, black pepper and cayenne in a small bowl. Season the ribs, front and backside.
  2. Fit a stovetop smoker with pecan wood chips, drip tray and rack. Smoke the ribs over medium low heat for 1 hour. 5 minutes before the hour is up, preheat oven to 275F. Place the ribs in a baking dish and wrap with foil. Bake 1 1/2 hours, until tender.
  3. Crisp up the top of the ribs by broiling for about 10 minutes.
Make it paleo - replace the brown sugar with coconut sugar or just omit it completely.
