• 1 rack of baby back ribs (beef or pork) your favorite dry spice-salt rub
  • 2 5 X7” hickory grilling plank (you can cut the rack of ribs to fit or place over 2 planks)


  • Trim off silver sinew and excess fat. Place rib rack on foil.
  • Select dry spice-salt rub and apply liberally to the ribs.
  • Wrap in foil and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Soak Grilling planks in water overnight.


  • Pre-heat BBQ on high.
  • Place the ribs on the plank and place plank on the BBQ.
  • Cover and cook on high for 10-15 minutes to bring the plank to a heavy smoke.
  • At maximum smoke, turn the barbecue temperature to low.
  • Continue cooking on low for 40-45 minutes. Be sure the barbecue remains covered. Keep a spray water bottle filled with ½ apple cider vinegar and ½ water. Use this spray to keep the ribs moist while cooking and to douse any flare ups.
