Pumpkin Spiced Maple Glazed Ribs with a little Sugar & Spice

Here is how I brought together these amazingly delicious Pumpkin Spiced Maple Glazed Ribs with a little Sugar & Spice.

Firstly let’s start with the rub, I got the key ingredients for the rub thanks to the legends at Bear Moutain BBQ and tweaked it a little for what I needed, here is what I put together in a bowl and mixed with a fork until it was well blended:

  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon coarse cracked black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 2-3 Teaspoon chili powder (I want this hot to counter the Maply Syrup we will be glazing the ribs with)
  • 1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Teaspoon fine ground coffee

So what is Pumpkin Spice? There is no Pumpkin in it and all you need to do is just add the following spices in a bowl together and you got yourself Pumpkin Spice:

  • 3 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 2 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ground All Spice
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ground Cloves

Both the rub and spice will keep in an air-tight container for a few weeks, the rub will go clumpy with the sugar in it but a quick shake and you should be good.

The rest of the ingredients you will need:

Now for how I cooked these Pumpkin Spiced Maple Glazed Ribs

  1. Set your smoker up with temps around 120C/250F, I cooked these in my Bradley Smoker using Maple Bisquettes.
  2. Evenly spread the Pumpkin Spice Rub over your rack of pork and let is sit till the rub tacks on.
  3. Once your Smoker is ready to go, place the rack of ribs in the smoker and cook to your liking. I generally go 2 hours of smoke, 2 hours of wrap and up to one of glaze till the meat is probing tender. These are all rough times and you should work with how your rack is travelling.
  4. Prepare the glaze is very simple, place the Maple Syrup into a saucepan on a low heat and at 1 tsp of the rub at a time, stir it in and taste as you go till you get the right balance of flavour. I added more of the Pumpkin Spice and Chilli by itself till I got the right balance.
  5. Once you are ready to glaze your ribs, simply boat your ribs, pour the Pumpkin Spiced Maple Glaze over the top and pop it back into the smoker till the glaze sets.
  6. Sprinkle a generous amount of Sauc’d Lownslow’s Sugar and Spice blend over the top before serving.
