Big Green Egg Baby Back Ribs with Gochujang BBQ Sauce

Want to spice up those baby back ribs?!?! Well try your ribs with Gochujang BBQ sauce! I have smoked ribs for years always using the 3-2-1 method. They always turn out great so I haven’t had the motivation to change… that is until I read a post from Kamado Jim about his Damn Simple, Damn Delicious pork spare ribs recipe. I took his lead and modified the rub and BBQ sauce a bit to give this an Asian twist. Now sit back, grab an ice cold OB Lager, and enjoy this post for Big Green Egg Baby Back Ribs with Gochujang BBQ Sauce.

I cover my ribs with French’s mustard first then put the rub all over them. I used Honey Hog BBQ rub from Meat Church to get that perfect crust on my Baby Back Ribs!

Go to Amazon and pick up some Gochujang paste. This stuff is great and adds so much to your BBQ experience. I mixed two tablespoons of this pepper paste with a cup of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce

Preheat your Big Green Egg to 250°F and add 3-4 chunks of hickory wood. When the smoke is light gray in color, and the temperature is stable, place the ribs inside.

After the first hour check on the ribs and see how they are doing. Spritz with an equal mix of apple juice and apple cider vinegar when you see dry spots form on the bark. Do this every hour for the first 3-hours of the smoke. 

At the 3-hour mark, take the Korean BBQ sauce you made earlier and baste the ribs before putting them back in for another 1 – 2 hours.

When the ribs bend but do not break, they are ready to pull from the Big Green Egg.
