Memphis Smoked Ribs

My husband, Mike, was craving ribs and he wanted to try a Memphis Rub, this is what we came up with.
Soak your wood chips. We used cherry wood chips.
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup garlic powder
1/4 cup chili powder
3 Tablespoons salt
3 Tablespoons black pepper
2 Tablespoons onion powder
2 Tablespoons celery seeds
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon oregano
1 Tablespoon cumin
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons ground allspice
Combine all ingredients until well combined.
Pack on that rub onto the ribs! Let sit until the smoker is ready.
We purchased our smoker around Thanksgiving and only paid $80. We didn’t want to buy a expensive one because we didn’t know if we would use it or not. We have used it tons and found several different recipes that taste great with the smoker.
Cook the ribs on 225 degrees for 3 to 4 hours (depending on how meaty your ribs are). You can also cook them inside on your broiler. The meat will get a little black that is caused from the paprika and they are not burned. They taste great with the spices from the rub alone, but also some BBQ sauce tastes great!
