Deep Fried Ribs

4 servings
  • 2 racks St. Louis style ribs
  • Your favorite rib rub
  • Peanut oil, for frying
  • Your favorite barbecue sauce
  • Pre-wash solution:
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 ounces beer
  • Breading:
  • All-purpose flour
  • Pepper, salt, and Cajun spices, to taste
  • Set smoker at 350 degrees F.

  • Wash each rack under water. Pat dry. Place racks on a wood-burning smoker. A hickory wood fire is best. Smoke ribs for 30 minutes. Remove ribs from smoker and rub each side with the rib rub. Return the ribs to smoker and smoke at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour 30 minutes. Remove ribs and cool completely. When cool, cut ribs into individual sections. Dip each rib into pre-wash solution then the breading mixture, lightly dredging. Shake off the excess then dip into wash again and then the breading mixture.

  • Place ribs into a 350-degree F deep fryer and cook for 5 minutes or until golden brown. You will have to do multiple batches. Serve with your favorite barbecue sauce for dipping.
