With permission from Dr. BBQ, I will this recipe here. Keep in mind that this is only one of many, many fine recipes in DrBBQ's Big-Time Barbecue Cookbook published in 2005 by St. Martin's Press.
Chicago-Style Rib Tips
Big-Time Barbecue Rub, to taste(recipe can be found on his website: www.drbbq.com
Rib tips from 6 slabs of ribs
2 cups Big-Time Barbecue Sauce(or your favorite)
1 cup apple juice
Prepare your cooker for indirect cooking at 250*F, using hickory and cherry wood for flavor.
Apply a heavy coat of the rub to the tips and them in the cooker for 4 hours.
Remove them from the cooker and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut across the length of the pieces at 1 to 2-inch internals. Put all the pieces in an aluminum foil pan. Add the barbecue sauce blended with the apple juice and toss to coat the tips.
Cover with foil and return to the cooker for another hour. They should be very tender. If they aren't, leave them in for another 30 minutes and check again. Serve with white bread.
Hope you all enjoy this. I know I do.
