Using 2 racks of baby back ribs, the low and slow four and a half hour smoke renders them juicy, smoky and delicious.

The versatility of your Louisiana Grill is displayed in just a few easy steps making this recipe one that reflects a timeless and classic rib recipe. Perfect for date night or part of a Sunday Night feast.
