Mexican Style St. Louis ribs with Dizzy Pig Molé

Stormbringer
Stormbringer Posts: 1,970
I'm a big fan of @Nature Boy's range, and their Molé rub is one of the house favourites. So after being inspired to Mexican food by a recent TV series here in the UK, I made a Mexican flavoured rack of ribs using said rub. It was rather lovely. Mrs. Stormbringer had the idea of putting some tequila into the glaze ... she was spot on! Recipe in the blog post link below:

These were served with smokey chipotle beans cooked in the MMX.

Ready to go into the Egg:


After 3 hours:


Applying the glaze:


Served ... sort of. The pictures I took of the finished ribs were crap, this is a library pic that is representative of the actual finished rack:


Thanks for looking!

    In a nod, exceptional colour and finish on those.  Always roll in with great cooks.

    That looks wonderful. I’m a big fan of the Molé rub and Mexican flavors in general.

    Those look outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks @Stormbringer. Picture #2 tells me you nailed those ribs. Disappointed that the finished picture was a substitute, but I understand :) Nice color and caramelization workin'! So happy you are enjoying the mole. @Pepper Monkey BBQ was the inspiration. She moved to Texas and told me she wanted somthing "Cuminny and Gaujilo Chile-y". Haha, that was my instructions. I loved the chilies so much I got carried away and decided to add cacao. People were pissed when the limited release version ran out, so we're bringing it back full time. My world is complete hearing that it is a "house favorite"!
    Cheers!

    Thanks, I used cherry with these ribs. The flavour worked well with the Molé-infused glaze.

    All the photos were taken by Mrs. Stormbringer with an IPhone 8 Plus using portait mode :). She's a great photographer with a good eye for composition and using of fake bokeh.

    Thanks and glad to hear your world is now complete! :D 

    I looked for it at your store when we were there last year but sadly none left. At least we have most of an 8oz jar left, having already gotten through one. Mrs. Stormbringer makes a mean smashburger using the rub as flavour, it pairs extremely well with her green tomato and tamarind chutney as a burger sauce. Hopefully BBQ Gourmet over on this side of the pond will be getting some more when it comes back full time.

    Thanks, this was something that Mrs. Stormbringer picked up in a flea market for a £2 (just under $3). She has a keen eye for photography, that includes items to help with composition.
