  • Pantherfanz Red-Zone Dry Rub, recipe follows

Directions

Thoroughly wash ribs in cold water and pat dry. Remove the back membrane from the rack. Coat with Pantherfanz Red-Zone Dry Rub, and refrigerate overnight. Heat the smoker to 225 to 250 degrees F. Place the ribs in the smoker, upright, on a metal rib rack holder. Place a cast iron skillet underneath the pork filled 3/4 of the way with flat beer. Add more beer as it evaporates. Cook for about 2 hours.

Cook the ribs until they reach an internal temperature of 190 degrees F, about 2 hours. Remove and cool. Serve with Carolina Sweet and Southern BBQ Sauce.
