Default BBQ Smoked "crab" Babybacks!

That's right!

Welcome to the Big Crab Cake!
I'm located in the heart of Maryland and I love BBQ Ribs

No actual crab meat involved. That would be too much.

I don't know if anyone on this site has ever attempted to, or thought of this concept...

Old Bay Babyback Ribs.

All I did is use regular old bay and combined some brown sugar so that it isn't that spicy.
I was also thinking of maybe even trying some bbq sauce with it on a section (mainly because I don't think it's going to be that great of an idea).

I'm going to smoke them tomorrow afternoon. I'll let you know how it turned out.
I've also got some new bbq rubs from San Antonio that I'm trying out as well. Should be a good day tomorrow.

Anyways, let me know what you guys think! Thanks for reading!

Hey, I am a transplant to Georgia from Edgemere, Md.

Really miss the crabs. We are able to occasionally find some blue crabs at the farmer's market and steam them, but it is a once on a while thing.

I've used Old Bay on chicken, and it works quite well there. Never tried it on ribs. Anxious to see the report...

Don

I would think this would work great. I use Todd's Crabby Dirt for all manner of meats and it works great. I bet the Old Bay will work out fine.

Gosh dang it! You just discovered part of my secret pork rib rub! LOL!

Old bay seasoning works very well as a BBQ rub just look at the ingredients, celery salt, mustard, red pepper, black pepper, bay leaves, cloves, allspice, ginger, mace, cardamon, cinnamon, and paprika.

All of those ingredients are included in most commercial BBQ rubs in some measure or another.

Speaking of Crab Cakes, has anyone tried smoking them? Do you think the smoke will overpower the delicate taste of the crab? I might pick up a couple from G&M and give it a shot.

a lot of people along the eastern seaboard use it in everything! It's an old favorite around the Chesapeake Watershed region. Don't know if you can get a plate of steamers on the Jersey shore without some sort of "old bay water" for dunking........

I'm not real convinced of it on other things but I'm more than happy to throw it on anything in the water with a shell on it!

I'm using 4 different rubs for 4 racks of babybacks.
It's going to be fun!

As for using Old Bay on other meats...

I have never used it on steak. Well, I've used it on fajitas. That's it though.

I use it in chicken all the time, it's great! Especially old bay wings! Just throw that rub on em and put em in a bag for 24 hours and then through them on the grill. It's the easiest way to get the tastiest chicken!

Anyway, I used two bottled rubs from Texas and the Old Bay rub with a little brown sugar so it's not entirely too salty. The 4th is in a marinade that the rest were in about 24 hrs ago. I'll throw some bbq sauce on with about an hour to go on the smoker. I'll make sure to take some pictures for you guys. Wish me luck.

I think smoking a crab cake would just dry it out. It's worth a try I guess.

I would suggest broiling them normally and then smoking it for maybe 20 minutes or so. Just an idea.

There are a few places up here that will ship crabs anywhere on the east coast. Live crabs! I'm sure the shipping is expensive because I believe it's all truck deliveries.
Anyways, I use Old Bay on Chicken Wings A LOT! It's great. Thanks for reading.

Alright, the babybacks turned out amazing!

My drum was being a little weird with the temperatures so it took a little longer than I expected but it was still great!

The Old Bay Ribs didn't exactly taste like Old Bay Ribs. I've got a better way to improve this!
I was thinking of steaming some crabs sometime this year, take the steamed old bay off of the crabs and use that as a bbq rub!
I'm more of a fan of steamed Old Bay anyways.

As for the others, I think I have a new favorite BBQ rub.
I've been huge on PlowBoys Yardbird as long as I can remember.
This stuff tops it.
Yes, TOPS IT!

Anyways here's the pictures from today and I hope you enjoy.
I included my dinner plate which had roasted asparagus in oil with sea salt, cracked pepper.
The smushed roasted red potatoes had the same added to it. Hope everyone enjoys it and thanks for reading!

Keep grilling!

Alright, I'm not sure why...
But half of my pictures wouldn't load as attachments to this website. I'll have to try again tomorrow evening after work. Enjoy the few you can see!
