Ingredients

  • 1 rack St. Louis spare ribs
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
  • Your favorite BBQ dry rub seasoning, to taste
  • 2 Pounds thick cut bacon

Directions

Prepare grill for indirect cooking, placing 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 to 4 chunks of your favorite smoking wood to the charcoal briquets and adjust the grill vents to bring the temperature to 250 degrees F. 

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 5 to 5 1/2 hours until tender (note: ribs should bend at a 45 degree angle when held on one end with tongs). Remove the ribs from the smoker or grill and open the bottom grill vents to bring the temperature to approximately 400 degrees F, adding 2 to 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.

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
