The lazy days of summer and spending every second outdoors are fast approaching! With summer focusing on everything outdoors, our cooking style changes and long gone are the days of me standing over the kitchen stove making a fantastic meal for my family. This summer will be all about the smoked ribs and technology advances are helping me take care of that with the newly designed electric smokehouse cookers like the one from Masterbuilt.

Last week, the boys and I (who have never used a smoker before) put our “mad smoking skills” to the test. We were all craving perfectly smoked ribs and fresh green beans! With my husband out of town at the time (he does all the smoking), we tackled dinner and enjoyed time basting in the sun by the pool while dinner was cooking for us. Being able to not worry about dinner and enjoy my family is a huge selling point for me. Let’s face it my boys are not getting any younger. They are 9 and 12 years old right now and I only have a few more years with them in the house. If the Masterbuilt Electric Smokehouse can save me time so I can spend that time with my boys, then you can sign me up!

The simplicity to use the Masterbuilt Electric Smokehouse propels the art of smoking to the next level. With simple pushbutton start at your fingertips to the internal lighting in the front and the convenience of seeing your food as it is going through the smoking process…using this smoker really is as easy as grilling.

To show you how easy it is to smoke BBQ on the Masterbuilt Electric Smokehouse, I have the best tasting recipe for Redneck Ribs to share with you.

These ribs have been taste tested and approved by our family. You can be found this great recipe below along with many others in John McLemore’s cookbook, Dadgum, That’s Good, Too! The best part of my first smoking experience…I smoked dinner without any real effort and the kids got to help on the action!

Serve up these smoked ribs with a side of these scrumptious homemade baked beans.

I also had the opportunity to meet with John McLemore and his wife, Tonya earlier this week at the KHOU – Great Day Houston Studios in Houston, TX for a little Q&A. Stay tuned next week to learn more about John and his recipes in Dadgum That’s Good! and Dadgum, That’s Good, Too!

    Sounds easy! Two questions:
    Do you add wood chips when preheating, or later?
    Do you place the ribs bare on the racks at first, then wrap in foil later?

    Thank you

      Great questions Bret! With the Masterbuilt Electric Smokehouse, I add the chips and ribs together at the same time…no preheating for me. As for placement of the ribs, I find that wrapping them in the beginning keeps the juices trapped into them making them moister. For the last 45 minutes or so, I remove them from the foil and they taste delicious!
