Ingredients for the Rub

To prepare the rub, you’ll need 3 cinnamon sticks, 90 ml (1/3 c) brown sugar and 60 ml (1/4 c) of anise star, fennel and peppercorns.

The Meat and the Sauce

  • 2 slabs baby back ribs (approx. 1.25 to 1.5 kg or 2 1/2 to 3 lbs)
  • 125 ml (1/2 c) teriyaki sauce


The night before you plan on cooking the ribs, grind together the rub ingredients, in a coffee mill or food processor, and mix with brown sugar. Then rub the ribs with the teriyaki sauce and coat with the rub. Place ribs in a plastic bag and refrigerate overnight.The next day remove the ribs from the refrigerator, pat down with any remaining rub and let stand for 25 to 30 minutes.

Smoking Method

Preheat the Bradley Smoker to 95°C to 100°C (200°F to 220°F) approximately. Transfer the ribs to the Bradley Smoker and, using Apple flavour bisquettes, cook for about 4 hours.

To Serve
