Smoked Ham Ribs with Honey Sriracha Glaze

What You’ll Need:

For the Cure

2 Cups Dark Brown Sugar

1 Cup Kosher Salt

2 Tablespoons Pickling Spice

1 Tablespoon Curing Salt (Pink Salt/Prague Powder #1)

2 Baby Back Rib Slabs

For the Smoke (Or Bake… you do you)

¼ Cup Yellow Mustard

¼ Cup Fresh Ground Black Pepper

4 Tablespoons Paprika

¼ Cup Dark Brown Sugar

3 Tbsp Kerrygold Unsalted Butter

For the Sauce

1 Cup Honey

½ Cup Sriracha

Top Those Beautiful Ham Bones

1 Handful Peanuts crushed… or more if you’re into peanuts

1 large jalapeno thin sliced

2 Stalks green onion “harsh” cut

1 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Seed

1 Handful of Cilantro Chopped (Unless you think cilantro tastes like Windex, in which case don’t chop cilantro)

What You’ll Do:


  1. Mix all the curing ingredients together with 1 gallon of water in a large stock pot and heat until everything dissolves. Let cool to room temperature before placing ribs into the cure.
  2. Place Ribs and curing mixture into a large vessel or large bag that you can seal and store in the fridge for 5 days. Be sure to turn the ribs once daily… these things need a little TLC.
  3. After 5 days, remove the ribs and pat dry. Now on to the smoke.


Note: If you are baking these, season as described below, wrap in foil and toss in a 250 degree oven for 2 hours. Remove and trash the foil, increase oven temp to 350, cover with brown sugar and butter then bake for another 10-15 minutes until internal temp is 200.

  1. Set your smoker to 225.
  2. Brush on the mustard then sprinkle the pepper and paprika evenly on both sides of the ribs.
  3. Place in the smoker until internal temp reaches 165.
  4. Cover meat side of ribs with brown sugar and 3, 1 tbsp slabs of butter then wrap with foil.
  5. Smoke until internal temp reaches 200-205.


  1. Mix together the honey and Sriracha
  2. Cut ribs into individual delicious hambones and grill over charcoal until warm and a slight char develops.
  3. Immediately toss with the sauce and place onto a large platter.
  4. Top with Peanuts, Jalapeno, Sesame Seed, Cilantro and Green Onion.
  5. Invite friends or make some friends and enjoy.
