These Smoked BBQ Ribs are made in the Traeger Grill. They are slowly smoked with a dry rub until they fall off the bone. They are then smothered in your favorite BBQ sauce. I promise they won't disappoint.
In the summer I love cooking on the grill. I have grown quite fond of our Traeger smoker. These Ribs were slowly smoked for several hours and were so tender and delicious. Some of the other favorites I have made on the smoker are The Best Texas Slow Smoked Brisket Recipe on Trager Grill, Steak and Chicken Kabobs, and Better Than the Fair Hot Italian Sausage.
I used St. Louis Style Ribs. Baby back ribs are also a good choice.
Choose your favorite. Cherry or Hickory are my personal favorites.
