Instructions Checklist
  • Rinse and pat ribs dry. Remove thin membrane from back of ribs by slicing into it with a knife and then pulling. (This makes for more tender ribs and allows smoke and rub to penetrate meat better.)

  • Sprinkle meat evenly with Cajun seasoning, and massage into meat. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

  • Soak wood chunks in water for at least 30 minutes.

  • Prepare smoker according to manufacturer's directions. Bring internal temperature to 225° to 250°; maintain temperature for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Drain wood chunks, and place on coals. Place rib slabs in a rib rack on upper cooking grate; cover with smoker lid.

  • Smoke ribs, maintaining temperature in smoker between 225° and 250°, for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Remove ribs from grill, and wrap in heavy-duty aluminum foil; return ribs to smoker. Cover with smoker lid, and smoke 30 more minutes. Serve with barbecue sauce.

  • Note: For testing purposes only, we used Luzianne Cajun Seasoning.
