How to

  1. With a chef's knife, carve a diamond shape pattern into the membrane of the baby back ribs to help the smoke penetrate the meat while keeping texture.
  2. Make the gyros rub according to it's recipe and season the ribs heavily with around 6 tbsp of rub.
  3. Fire up your BBQ and create indirect heat at a temperature of 120°C or 250°F.
  4. Add a chunk of apple smoke wood to the heat source and put the ribs on the grill grate.
  5. Let the ribs smoke until you hit a temperature of around 75°C or 165°F. This is around the time that the smoke stops penetrating the meat.
  6. Until you hit that marker you have enough time to make tzatziki sauce according to it's recipe.
  7. Wrap the ribs in aluminium foil and let them continue to cook until 92°C or 200°F.
  8. Let the ribs rest for around 30/30 minutes and bake some pre-baked pita bread
  9. Try to pull out the bone and stuff a pita bread with some of that tzatziki, some lettuce and of course that boneless rib.
