Dan-O got a new toy! We’ve been hearing all about these Orion Cookers, and how they make smoking your food fast and easy. We’ve already cooked chicken with it, so this time we’re making some smoked ribs for our eatin’ pleasure! We’re also doing spare ribs AND baby backs for variety. 

As you know… Dan-O’s Seasoning does not have any sugar. Most rib rubs will have some sugar so you can get some bark and caramelization on the outside. So we’re churching up our own seasoning with some coconut sugar and chipotle seasoning. This blend will take your pork to the next level with the sweet, spicy, and savory mix of flavors. 

Now, the Orion Cooker is something else! This thing cooks ribs in about an hour and a half, something we’re used to taking 6 + hours. This is because the indirect heat makes it super hot, as your food cooks with radiant heat, steam, and smoke! It’s magical. You can follow this recipe along in whatever smoker you have (times will vary), but trust us on the Orion! 

So there you have it. A smoked rib recipe worthy of a competition, in a next level piece of equipment. Enjoy!
