OH MAN OH MAN OH MAN do I ever love BBQ ribs! For you Southerners that think you can't get good ribs in the North..... well, you've never met my Honey! The man loves to grill and makes THEE best BBQ! I mean, fall off the bone tender. He gave me the OK to tell you his secret.
1 good size hunk of pork spareribs
dry pork rub (you can make your own or just use Lysanders)
A good BBQ sauce - we tried Ditkas this time and it was DEElicious!
We've mixed our own before, but man alive, there are sooooo many good ones out in the market to choose from. WE like to try new ones all the time.
First you remove the white, tough, fatty portion with a sharp knife. Just cut it right off. Then you rub the ribs down real good with your pork rub. Don't be afraid to rub them down good. Then put them on a baking pan with a small amount of water (just enough to keep them from sticking to the bottom of the pan and to create a little moisture). Cover the pan tightly with foil and bake at 375 for about 1 1/2 hours. Or until you see the meat starting to pull away from the bone a bit. Remove from the oven and place on a preheated BBQ grill - gas or charcoal, it's your choice. Cook until they are nice and charred, slathering with sauce every 5 minutes or so. Once they are nicely charred, remove them from the grill and place them into a packet of foil and seal it up nice and tight. Let them sit for about 10 or 15 minutes, for the juices to redistribute. Then when you open the foil...WOWZERS!! Serve with your favorite veggies and ENJOY!
