Smoky sweet ribs – Fruitige ribbetjes

Having a party for the kids? What’s better to serve than some smoky sweet ribs? At least that’s what my kids want to eat. For my oldest son’s birthday I made these delicious smoked fruity ribs on the traeger. With sticky sauce behind his ears and a stack of bones left in no time I think I can call this recipe a succes. I thought the speed of eating was only possible on cartoons… Remember those scenes where a couple of piranha’s turn a big animal into bones in no time? That’s exactly how it looked. In this recipe I share you how I make the perfect ribs to my taste on the traeger Pellet smoker! Hope you like them as much as we did!

Servings: 4 people
  • 4 slabs Baby Back Ribs
  • 1 part Traeger chicken rub
  • 1 part Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub
  • 1/4 cup Traeger Apricot sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon
  • Fresh cilantro at taste
  • Seroendeng optional to serve
  1. Remove the ribs membrane and rub them thoroughly with equal parts Traeger Chicken Rub and Traeger Pork and Poultry rub

  2. Prepare your Traeger Pellet BBQ for a session with Cherry pellets.

  3. Smoke your ribs using de supersmoke option for 2 hours at 90°C

  4. Raise the heat to 150°C and let the ribs cook for another 45 minutes. 

  5. Prepare the Apricot sauce by mixing some lime juice with it to compensate some of the sweetness (delicious). Baste the ribs with a layer of the sauce you’ve made and let them caramellize for another 15 minutes. 

Cut the ribs and sprinkle some Seroendeng and/or freshly chopped cilantro on top! Serve with a fresh beer. Cheers!
Recipe Notes

If you don’t own a Pellet grill? Don’t worry: You can follow these steps on any BBQ using some cherry wood in between the coals.

Or you go for a higher temperature (150°C) all the time and smoke them for 1hr 30 min. I love the ribs tender with a bite.
