BBQ Ribs, Yummy.
I’m not sure about other families, but my family loves ribs. My son doesn’t quite remember what they are called and will request “the meat on a bone”. I usually braise ribs in the oven first and then crock pot them with BBQ sauce but switched it up this time and got excellent results. I made a dry rub with stuff I already had at home, wrapped the ribs in tin foil and cooked in a 300 oven for 2.5 hrs, afterwards we fired up the BBQ and brushed on the BBQ sauce and cooked for an additional 15-20 min on the BBQ. They turned out awesome and I will definitely try this method again. I am also quite proud as for the first time in a LONG time I was able to get the membrane off in one quick pull. The BBQ sauce I used was bought strangely enough from Chapters, they had all their Father’s Day BBQ sauces and Marinades on 30% off so I decided to try something new from the standard grocery store brands.
- Prep your ribs, cut into lengths easy enough to wrap in tinfoil and fit on a baking sheet. Make sure to take off the membrane from the underside of the ribs.
- Dry rub for ribs: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/dry-rub-for-ribs/ (I didn’t use anywhere near 1.5 tbsp of salt and pepper, I used more like 1.5 tsp).
- Apply dry rub front and back (let marinate overnight if you can – I never think of this ahead of time so mine usually go right into the oven).
- Cover with tinfoil tightly and place ribs on a baking sheet in a 300 degree oven for 2 to 2.5.
- Once the ribs are done in the oven, brush on BBQ sauce and BBQ them until a nice crust on the outside forms, usually 15-20 minutes, applying more BBQ sauce if needed during the cooking.
