My husband Mike decided it was time to smoke a bunch of meat in our big smoker! He has so far, since we moved here, done it once a year. He chose brisket, pork butt, tri tip and chicken. The night be fore we put a rub on all the meat and wrapped it up nice and tight to soak in. Then we put it all in the frig.

My Dry Rub

For the Rub:
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoon ground cumin
4 teaspoon smoky paprika
2 teaspoon dry oregano
2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoon salt
25 grinds fresh black pepper
6 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preheat over to 300 degrees F.
Mix the rub ingredients together well in a small bowl.

Remove the membrane from the bone side of the ribs, then rub the vegetable oil onto the ribs. Pour
the rub over the ribs and work the rub fully and evenly into the ribs. Spread the ribs out evenly on
a foil-lined baking sheet.

Bake until tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside, about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. These are also good with  my BBQ sauce all over them!

*also use for chicken, fish, and any kind of beef!
Next morning which was Saturday we unwrapped it all and lined it up in the smoker.
Put water in the water pan, big alder chips in the chip pan, lit it and let it smoke. About every hour I put some new chips in the chip pan, keeping the temp to 230 degrees for about 8 hours.

After that we took out all the meat double wrapped it in foil, put it all back in the smoker without the chips and let it cook at 230 degree for about 4 hours, till everything was done.

 ohhhh it was so good!! I made up a bunch of BBQ sauce and we had a nice BBQ dinner. The rest of the smoked meat I put up in a vacuum sealer for lunches.

My BBQ Sauce!

2 c. ketchup
1/3 c. Worcestershire Sauce
2 1/2 T. liquid smoke
1/2 t. tabasco sauce
1/4 stick of butter

1/2 c. white vinegar
2 T. mustard
1/3 c.  finely minced yellow onion

1 cup Brown Sugar(enough for your taste)
3 T. white sugar

2 t. salt

Makes about 4 cups of sauce.

Mix all the ingred. in a pot.  Mix well.
Simmer over very low heat for about 15-minutes, stirring occasionally.

I just store it in the frig. since i use it up so fast.
You can also put everything in the food processor and then in the pot to simmer. You can also can it!
