Learn how simple it is to make Smoked Baby Back Ribs on a Pellet Grill!
I am becoming a pro at using our pellet grill. My husband has ALWAYS been the one that grills and smokes different meats but lately after we purchased the pellet grill…it’s made it so easy, I am using it regularly too.
It really is a cheating way to smoke and grill things, but it works and it’s so simple.

Tips for Making Smoked Baby Back Ribs on a Pellet Grill:
The key to the perfect baby back ribs on the pellet grill is to cook them low and slow. These ribs will be cooked at 225*F for about 4 to 5 hours.
Remember these will take a while to cook, do not expect them to be done early.
It’s best to get the internal temperature to about 185*F. This is a great temperature to get a combination of ribs that fall off the bone slightly, but not completely. This temperature makes the meat perfectly tender and it just really melts in your mouth.
I suggest doing the brown sugar rub in the recipe card or your own choice of rib rub to give them some additional flavor, then when they are cooked, add a nice layer of barbecue sauce before serving.
Let the ribs rest for about 10-15 minutes before cutting them and serving.
