1 gallon water
4 ounces kosher salt
4 ounces sugar to 8 ounces
1 5/8 ounces Prague powder or Instacure

Preparation / Directions:

In the cure, I adjust the sugar depending on how much sugar is in the rub and finishing sauce I use that day. Mix cure ingredients in water and stir until dissolved. Remove the membrane from the ribs, wash them well and then let them cure in refrigerator for about 18 hours. You can then rub them if you like and let sit in refrigerator for another 2-12 hours. Remember the cure is going to add a lot of salt and some sweetness so I don't use much of either in the rub. Then I smoke them at 225F-250F until I can easily tear off a rib (about 3 hours). Danny Gaulden's rib glaze (in this recipe archive) goes great with this. Also, I tried the peach glaze from "The Ultimate BBQ Sauce Cookbook" (ISBN 1-56352-201-2) this week and it was also grea
