  • Bake ribs in the preheated oven until heated through, about 1 1/4 hour.

  • Preheat smoker to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C) according to manufacturer's instructions.

  • Combine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl and pour into a spray bottle.

  • Transfer ribs to the smoker. Let cook, spraying generously with vinegar mixture every 30 minutes, until tender, about 3 hours.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Add ketchup, honey, steak sauce, hot sauce, garlic, and cayenne pepper. Simmer sauce until flavors combine, about 20 minutes.

  • Brush sauce over ribs. Grill until deeply browned, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can smoke these baby back ribs on a grill with wood chips, just make sure to maintain the temperature at 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).

Scaled recipe back to 1 rack of ribs and I skipped the sauce preparation due to personal preference. We prefer our sauce on the side. This method of smoking worked great for us and we've smoked a great deal of ribs. I wasn't sure about the vinegar/worcestershire combo but it kept the ribs nice and moist. This one is a keeper. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I put in a search in Allrecipes; “DRY smoked ribs” (in quotation marks) and this came up. BBQ sauce and honey in the recipe, “DRY” means NOT SWEET! Like WRT libations beverages, Dry Vermouth for a martini vs the likes of Crofts Sherry. I’m an F’n alien that loves BBQ grill, smoking and detests BBQ sauce and any type of cane sugar, honey and the like on my grilled food. Read More
