Behold the glory, that is pretzel and beer battered fried ribs. I teamed up with my buddy Ron, who I volunteer with at the Annual BBQ Rodeo Cookoff. If you live in Texas and you don’t eat BBQ… you might be weird.

 

We really one-upped this standard smokey delicacy by coating it in a beer and pretzel batter.

Make your glaze and spray. For the glaze: combine ingredients, heat in saucepan on low heat to simmer. This will burn off the alcohol and dissolve sugar.

If glaze is runny, add brown sugar to thicken a little (it will thicken more once it cools). For the spray, pour apple cider vinegar and orange juice into a clean spray bottle.

 

Remove ribs from bag and pat dry. Pour dry rub all over. Place on smoker for 15 min then lower heat to 250*. In order to lower the heat, you want to close off any air access. Air makes the heat, so your pit needs to be able to “Choke” the air off or allow for an adjustment to heat. If heat goes below 250, open up air access to heat up again.

Once it’s cooked for 3 hours, brush with your glaze once about every 30-40 min. If the skin appears to be drying or cracking, spray with mixture to give it moisture.

 

 

Make your pretzel beer batter. Mix together Pretzel Crisp bread crumbs, egg, and beer. The batter should be very thick. Add more Pretzel Crisps if necessary.
