  • Smoker


  • 1 pound rib tips
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tbsp kosher salt
  • ½ tbsp coarse black pepper
  • ½ ground cumin


  • Mix rub ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  • Rub the rib slabs generously with the rub and refrigerate at least 2 hours but preferred overnight.
  • Smoke ribs between 225-250 degrees F for 3-4 hours.
  • Optional - Last 30 minuets of cook time baste slabs with bbq sauce
  • Allow rib tips to rest 5 minutes. Chop the ribs into smaller pieces.
  • Serve



Smoke the tips intact vs cutting them first. Smoking them whole will preserve their moisture.
To cook them Chicago style increase the temperature to 300 degrees and baste the ribs the last 30 minutes of cook with your favorite bbq sauce.
Whenever I buy slabs of ribs, I carve them and then freeze the tips until I'm ready to cook them.
