    Bacon Wrapped Memorial Day Ribs


    This Memorial Day, I'm firing up the grill for something extra special...smoked spare ribs, wrapped in thick cut bacon, and then smoked again.


    The result? Pure pork perfection!


    Fire these bad boys up at your backyard holiday bash and you are certain to be deemed “God's gift to the grill” from that day forward!





    1 rack St. Louis spare ribs

    2 tbsp. yellow mustard

    Your favorite BBQ dry rub seasoning

    2 lb. thick cut bacon


    Prepare grill for indirect cooking, placing a water filled aluminum half pan in the center of the charcoal grate and placing preheated charcoal briquets on each side of the pan.  Add 3-4 chunks of your favorite smoking wood to the charcoal briquets and adjust the grill vents to bring the temperature to 250 degrees.


    Remove the membrane from the bone side of the ribs then rub the ribs with mustard, and season both sides of the ribs liberally with BBQ dry rub.  Place the ribs on the smoker or grill.


    Cover and allow the ribs to smoke for approximately 4-4.5 hours until tender.  Remove the ribs from the smoker or grill and open the bottom grill vents to bring the temperature to approximately 400 degrees, adding 2-3 additional wood chunks for maximum smoke flavor.   Slice rack into individual ribs.


    Wrap each rib tightly with two slices of bacon so that the meat is entirely covered.


    Dust the bacon with dry rub seasoning then place the bacon wrapped ribs on the grill over indirect heat.  Cover the grill and allow the bacon wrapped ribs to smoke for approximately 20 minutes until the bacon is nicely browned and crisp.


    Remove the double smoked, bacon wrapped ribs from the grill and serve immediately.
