A Rare Food Post – Smoked Pork Ribs (in the oven)

oven smoked pork ribsI’ve been wanting to smoke some meat for quite a long time.  But, I’m waiting for my grill to die before I buy a grill I can use as a smoker (preferably one that has a side firebox so I can burn actual wood for smoke).  I found out recently, however, that I can use my electric oven as a smoker in a pinch.  I thank the foureyed(beer)geek for the tip.

Here are the steps I took:

  1. First, I had to choose my supplies.  I chose pork ribs because I just prefer the texture and flavor over beef ribs.  I needed an aluminum baking tray and some woodchips.  I chose hickory chips this time around for a mild smokiness.
