How to Smoke Ribs

One of our favorite family dinners is Smoked Ribs! It may sound intimidating to smoke meats, but it is really very simple and it one of the most delicious ways to enjoy a keto carnivore dinner!

For years we had an old cheap smoker that was small and we decided to upgrade to a Traeger Grill and we have been using it non-stop! It is nice and large and easier to use that our old junky one. No need to soak the wood chips or keep adding chips while smoking. I can just turn it on and let it smoke while I enjoy a long bike ride with my kids.

To show you how easy it is to smoke ribs I made a How to Smoke Ribs video on Youtube. I hope you enjoy! You never know what is going to happen when you have goofy kids in your videos!

If you would like the nice and convenient toaster oven I used in the video, click HERE. It is on SALE now!

ButcherBox is an amazing company that mails tasty organic grass-fed beef, pasture-raised pork and chicken right to your front door! They save me so much time by not having to run to the grocery store! I always have something to make. Even just grilling up a steak or frying up a tasty burger or pork chops for an easy keto meal; I have something from ButcherBox in the freezer I can easily make such as my smoked ribs using quality organic ribs!

Some people have gotten upset that I don’t support local farmers, but they are jumping to conclusions because I DO! We purchase a cow from a local farmer (a former client of mine!) however, I have so many clients who do not have the space for 3 full-sized chest freezers like we have. There are so many people living in small apartments with a small freezer and do not have the room for purchasing large amounts of meat. This is anther reason I love Butcherbox, they work with quality farms and send just enough to fill a small freezer and last you the month. It is a win, win!

Traeger Smokers I love are RIGHT HERE.

“Hi Maria! I just wanted to thank you! I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 18 (even though I suffered from it for years prior) and have always had problems with my weight. I was on medication for anxiety and depression. Since eating Keto I am no longer on Lexapro, Wellbutrin or Xanax. Most of my PCOS symptoms have gone away or are at least manageable. So thank you for all of your help!” Melissa
