Q: Dr. BBQ:
I am looking for a good marinade for baby back ribs. I want to marinade prior to smoking. Any suggestions?

A: Hi, Ed and Janel:
I don’t think I’ve ever marinated a slab of ribs. A brine of some sort, like one that you’d use for pork chops would be ok, just be careful of the salt if you were also going to use a rub and/or a glaze later on. Another option would be a traditional marinade, with vinegar and oil, maybe even just an Italian dressing.
