Editor's Qs

How do I keep ribs moist while smoking?

There are several ways to keep ribs moist during smoking. One way is to use a mop. This is very commonly used by competitive teams at cookoffs.

Another way of holding moisture is using the technique that I use quite often. That is to add a quarter to half of an inch of liquid (such as beer, water, apple juice, etc.)to a pan. Then place it in the smoker either directly under the ribs like a drip pan, or on the grate with the ribs in the pan. Steam from the liquid keeps moisture around the ribs.

Another way, is with the use of foil. After about 2 hours of smoking with indirect heat, remove the ribs. Seal each rack in some heavy aluminum foil with 1/2 cup apple juice. This not only helps keep in moisture, it also tenderizes and adds flavor.

Once wrapped, return to the smoker for another 2 hours. If you really want some good ribs, remove them after a couple of hours and place the foil-wrapped ribs in an insulated cooler for another hour.

Then all that's left is to remove from foil, add your favorite BBQ sauce and grill for another 15 minutes.

Get yourself another drink and enjoy!
