1 cup kosher salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup garlic seasoning
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup lemon pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion salt
1/4 cup celery salt
2 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup minced dried onion
1 cup Rib Rub
1 (20 ounce) bottle Famous Dave’s BBQ sauce

Mix all rub ingredients. Store in airtight container. Makes 6 cups

Night before smoking, trim ribs of fat. Place in large plastic bag
and pour in Italian dressing to coat. Remove and wipe dressing off.
Sprinkle each rib with pepper and then 1/4 cup of brown sugar and
1/2 cup onion flakes. Wrap each rib in plastic and refrigerate

The next morning remove from wrap and wipe off ribs. Coat front and
back with rib rub and rub into meat. Using a chimney charcoal
starter get 15 briquettes red hot. Place coals on end of grill and 1
pound of green hickory around coals. Use water-soaked hickory chunks
if you can’t get fresh cut hickory. Keep internal temp of grill at
200 to 255 degrees F. Add more charcoal and hickory chunks every
hour as needed. Place ribs bone side down but not directly over hot
After 3 hours, remove ribs from grill and wrap in aluminum foil.

or until fork tender. Build hot bed of coals over entire bottom of
grill. Place ribs on grill to add char flavor. When meat becomes
bubbly it is done. Slather with BBQ sauce. Let heat caramelize sauce
(secret to tender smoky ribs).

Hawaiian Pancakes With Pineapple Syrup

Buttermilk pancakes studded with macadamia nuts and topped with homemade pineapple syrup.
Boxed buttermilk pancake mix
Macadamia nuts

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup pineapple juice concentrate (right out of the can)

I take the easy way by making buttermilk pancakes from a store-bought mix.  I also like these with cashews instead of Macadamia nuts.

Just add coarsely chopped macadamia nuts to the batter, as much as you’d like.

For the syrup, in a small saucepan, place butter, sugar and pineapple juice.
Heat over low heat, stirring, until butter melts. Do not boil.
