  • 3 St. Louis Style Pork Ribs
  • 2-3 tbsp of Hickory Peach Porter Seasoning or your favorite BBQ Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp of Dijon Mustard as binder
  • 12 oz of Light Beer for spritz


  • 18 tbsp of Butter split into ½ tbsp segments
  • 6 tbsp of Brown Sugar
  • 3-4 tbsp of Honey

Habanero Peach BBQ Sauce:

  • ¼ cup of Ketchup
  • cup of Peach Jelly
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1.5 tbsp Habanero Hot Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce


  • Trim the pork ribs of any excess fat and carefully remove the membrane on the back of the ribs. Lather with mustard and season thoroughly with Hickory Peach Porter seasoning or your favorite bbq seasoning. Place in the fridge for 2 hours to set.
  • Preheat your smoker for indirect cooking around 225F. Add some wood chips or wood chunks to the smoker for added flavor.
  • Add the ribs to the smoker on the indirect heat side. Cook for about 3-4 hours or until the outside is a light ruby red color. Make sure to spritz the ribs with beer every 30 minutes. After 3 hours, pull your ribs off the smoker. Lay down a layer of aluminum foil with 3 tbsp of butter spaced out on the foil. Add 1 tbsp brown sugar and drizzle ½ honey over the butter. Top the butter mixture with one of the pork ribs with the bone side facing up. Add more the same amount of butter, honey and brown sugar on top of the rib. Carefully wrap in the foil until tight and secure. Repeat this step for all of the pork ribs.
  • Once done wrapping, add the ribs back to the smoker with bone side facing up. Cook for another 2 hours. About 30 minutes before the ribs are done, add a basting skillet over medium high fire. Add all the ingredients for the Habanero Peach BBQ Sauce to the skillet and let simmer until thickened (about 10 minutes) making sure to stir frequently. Once done, pull off and let cool.
  • After 2 hours, unwrap the ribs and discard the foil. Place all the ribs back on the smoker and increase the heat to 275-285F. Begin glazing the outside of the ribs until with the BBQ sauce. Continue to cook the ribs for another 30 minutes until they are caramelized on the outside but tender on the inside.
  • Once done, pull the ribs off and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy!
