Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For Texas Mop Sauce:

Lay the ribs on baking sheets and generously season with TownLine BBQ Rub on the top and bottom of the meat, shaking off any excess rub. 

Preheat an indirect smoker or charcoal grill with hard wood lump charcoal to a temperature of 225 degrees. Once the grill is to temperature, add chunks of hickory or oak for smoke. Allow the wood to burn down to maintain your 225 degree temperature. 

Place the ribs in the prepared smoker and close the cover. (For a home grill, add a little wood to the coals and offset the fire to one side of the grill and cover.) Do not touch for 1 hour. 

Meanwhile, to make the Texas Mop Sauce, combine the TownLine BBQ Texas Mop Base with the TownLine BBQ Sauce. After one hour open the smoker and baste the ribs (meat side up) with a generous brush of Texas Mop Sauce and sprinkle evenly with TownLine BBQ Rub. Close the smoker and set a timer for 30 minutes and repeat the step. Continue to do this for 3 hours. Remove the ribs from the smoker and serve. 

To reheat, baste the ribs with Texas Mop Sauce and put on a grill and cook over medium heat for approximately 15 minutes.

Townline BBQ Rub:

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Use immediately, or store the rub in a tightly sealed container for up to 3 months. 

Townline BBQ Texas Mop Base:

Combine the ingredients in a bowl. Yield: 5 cups.

Townline BBQ Sauce:

In a heavy bottom 5 quart sauce pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 5 minutes. Add the onion and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes on low heat, stirring frequently not to burn. Remove from the heat and cool.
