For the dipping sauce:


Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Grill to 250ºF.

Remove the parchment from the bone side of the ribs. Starting on the bone side of the racks, lather the ribs with the Big Rick’s Jalapeño Honey Mustard. Spread into a thin even layer. Season with R Butts R Smokin’ Ozark Heat. Let the rub set up and attach for a couple of minutes before flipping and repeating the process on the meat side. Let the ribs sit for about 10 minutes, or until the rub appears wet on the surface. Transfer to the smoker.

Smoke at 250ºF for approximately 5-5.5 hours, or until the meat is tender and the meat moves freely around the bone. Remove from the grill and rest 15 minutes before slicing. For the easiest slicing, flip the ribs so that they are meat size down so that you can see the bones. Slice in between the bones with a very sharp slicing knife.

    Hi Chef Tom,
    Loved your rib segment. Might I make one suggestion? I’ve always had terrific results by rubbing the meat down, wrapping it and refrigerating overnight. This allows the mustard and seasonings to really permeate the meat and begin to tenderize the fibers.

    I look forward to seeing more segments like this soon.

    Best Regards,
    Dan S.
