Big Ragu\'s quick smoked baby backs
Description:I like to slow smoke ribs as much as anyone but there are times when you dont have the time to prepare them using traditional methods.  This recipe involves a pressure cooker which may turn some folks off but the ribs are finished on the egg and will have people thinking you smoked them for hours.
  1. baby back ribs rinsed, dried and de-membraned
  2. course mustard (4oz per slab)
  3. 12 oz of apple juice
  4. any good pork/rib rub (i like butt rub or uncle henry\'s texas pig)
  5. soaked wood chips or chunks (i prefer fruit wood or hickory)

Rub both sides of ribs first with course mustard then with the rub.  Wrap in foil and set in the refridgerator for at least 6 hours or for best results overnight.  Place apple juice along with one cup of water in a pressure cooker.  Cook in pressure cooker with 10lb\'s of pressure for 35 minutes. Use steamer basket that comes with cooker to keep the meat above the liquid.  If the liquid is above the bottom of the basket you can pour some off. 

Set up egg at 225-250.  Remove from pressure cooker and place in a rib rack.  Place the chips and cook direct for 30 minutes to 1 hour based on how much bark and smoke you like on them.  They taste the same if cooked indirect but they do not get that crispness to the outside.  You can apply your bbq sauce in the last few minutes. No resting required... once they are off the egg they are ready to eat.  

Notes:This recipe is for one slab. I use a rib rack to maximize space but if you do not use a rack I would reduce the time especially if going direct.
