Baby Backs! Love em

Picked up two racks of pork ribs (baby back) at the commissary on Friday.  Covered them in a variation of Mickey's Coffee Rub:

2 TBSP iodized salt 
2 TBSP ground black pepper
3 TBSP turbinado sugar 
2 TBSP mccormick's tuscan italian seasoning
3 TBSP espresso coffee grounds (fine)
1 TBSP smoked paprika (hungarian)
1 TBSP cumin
1 TSP chipotle chile pepper 

Put the ribs on at 1100; temperature at 225.   Pulled at 5 1/2 hours.  Cooked with membrane side up.  Did not flip - only checked internal temperature until reached 180.  Let rest for 30 minutes.  Pulled them apart to serve.  Very easy cook.  


A real winner.  Definitely the ying and yang of warrior food.  

Only thing missing was a plate of farro.  Felt like I just finished a foot march with Julius Caesar.

    When you said you cooked membrane side up I'm assuming you pulled the membrane prior?

    Maybe Miles left the membrane to retain moisture in the rib, as long as we're assuming.

    Oh yeah I left the membrane on - read somewheres that it helps retain moisture.  I really should try to cook without - is it better?  I don't believe I have ever had them without......

    Miles the rub will not go into the membrane on the back side. Best to pull my friend. Same with beef ribs (have you done beef ribs yet).

    A few of you may have seen I put on the Salado EggFest. During the first one 3 years ago I called Miles for a favor (he was commander of a unit on Fort Hood and taken me on a live fire demo on Fort Hood). The hotel for the Fest is a Inn just across the creek (8 to 12" deep) from where we have the Fest in the park. I had ask if Miles could get me a portable bridge and a company of men to place it so we could just walk over the water. Well Miles' unit just would blow up crap and had no bridges. I just did not need the park or Inn leveled.  Long way of saying Miles is one of the good guys.
