BBQ ribs

I've seen some Ezoners have some knowledges about cooking ("poisoning food at MWE" and "brownies" threads)

How can I do BBQ sauce for ribs?

I've tryed honey ribs recibe and spicey recipe (oooouuuch!! too spicey) but I wonder how they give that smoked taste to the sauce (burnt ESC maybe).

Any idea?

I like liquid smoke but it's no replacement for the real thing. We have a tree here called the Alder that is excellent for smoking fish and meats when it's still a little green. I did a 10 pound silver salmon last summer in our Weber clone grill with most of the vents shut and just enough charcoal to keep the Alder sticks smoldering. It was a hit at our annual outing, I also made smoked salmon quiche from the leftovers from the grilling, smoked it next to the chicken we did the following day.

Major yumm! Smoked meats are not supossed to be very good for you but I love the taste. I'd try ribs grilled with some smoldering mild flavored green wood (not cork oak).

As Looooeeee! said, liquid smoke is OK but nothing is as good as smoking with REAL wood. Soak the wood chips you plan to use for about 30 minutes before using.
I put the chips in the middle, inside a little aluminum pan, with the coals on each side, so the meat/fish slowly cook from indirect heat and the wood chips slowly smolder.
The key is SLOOOOW cooking.
I got a "water smoker" for Christmas and it really does a nice job. The fire is below a pan of water, with the chips in the water.
I've used hickory, applewood, alder (oh yeah), and others that don't come to mind.
I'm starting to get hungry ........


and what, Mark?

Smells

Yes Mark, tell us. Oh , I have an idea but I better not say anything. Sassycat might be reading this and I could end up getting a digital slap in the kisser.
I have a water smoker and use it on salmon and turkey and whatever.
Cured and smoked turkey legs:
Use must use Kosher or curing salt! Do not use iodizede salt as this will create an extremely foul taste and cause a premature failure in your new brushless system.
Cure the turkey legs,( I like to use Morton curing salt) for 12 to 24 hours. Follow directions on bag.
Rinse legs in cold running water.While preparing legs allow the smoker to get warmed to temperature then add chips or chunks...I like to use hickory chunks.
Allow the legs to smoke and finnish cooking in the smoker. I usually fill the water tray as this prevents the turkey from drying.
Allow to cook untill done. Let cool slightly then enjoy, with some cold brewsky. Yum Yum John Z.

Liquid smoke

Not to worry, it's an all natural product.

You can get the same effect by adding slices of your tennis
shoes to your sauce.
