Greek/Honey Ribs

I was looking for a different spin on ribs (BB's). I am getting tired of them tasting like BBQ sauce.

We have gotten to where John Henry's Greek Rub is our go to rub for pork and chicken. It is very good. So, in thinking about a "dry" rib, I decided to give it a shot.

I took the ribs out of the cryo, washed them off, patted dry, and applied a medium portion of the Greek rub. Onto the Egg at 300 for 2 hours. Opened Egg and basted in honey I thinned out a little by warming it up. Also sprinkled a little more Greek rub. Total cook time, 4.5 hours at 300.

These were some of the best ribs I have ever eaten. My wife, who doesn't really like ribs, ate half a rack. I would highly recommend this rub in general and also recommend giving this a shot.

My photography skills continue to dissapoint but the food was great. Happy Holidays.

    Yes it is. I have a friend bring it to me from Jacksonville. I haven't found it anywhere near me. I like the apple chipotle a lot also.

    Thanks Kristi. Hardly compares to the stuff you have been making.

    @billpinnc, All I can tell by looking at the John Henry website is that it is extremely inadequate.

  • @Hi54putty, I had the same thought on the web site. They must have a retail outlet of some kind but they don't mention it on the site. Shipping and handling make ordering one or two rubs seem expensive.

    Big John Henry fan here, they sell it at my egg dealer. Apple chipotle, Texas pig rub (my go to for butts is 1/2 and 1/3 of those 2). And they have a burbon pecan rub that is great on chicken. I feel ya on the shipping that's how I feel about dizzy pig but I'm sure it's great

    The place I get them is actually off the airport exit in Jacksonville, FL. It is a small grill shop that probably has at least 100 different rubs. Everything you could ever want except Dizzy Pig. I only get down there a few times a year but have a "hook up" when I'm running low.
