Smoked Baby Back Ribs




2 racks baby back ribs, cut in half

1 cup spice seasoning

Kosher salt, as desired

Ground black pepper, as desired



  1. To install the grill grate, position it flat on top of the heating element and gently press down until it sits into place.
  2. Liberally cover ribs on all sides with desired seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  3. Shingle ribs onto grill grate or place in rib rack, then close the hood.
  4. While holding the smoke box lid open, use the pellet scoop to pour pellets into the smoke box until filled to the top. Then close the smoke box lid.
  5. Turn dial to select SMOKER, set temperature to 120°C and set time to 2 hours. Select START/STOP to begin cooking (preheating is not needed).
  6. After 1 hour, open hood, and rotate ribs so the bottom side is now exposed on top. Depending on the thickness of the ribs, begin to check for doneness around 1 hour 30 minutes. Cooking is done when an instant-read food thermometer reads between 88°C to 95°C.
  7. When cooking is complete, open hood, remove ribs from grill and let rest for about 10 minutes. Then cut as desired and serve with sauce of choice.
