BBQ RIBS

RECIPES

Are you ready to get your hands dirty with tender meat that practically falls off the bone? Since the Super Bowl is right around the corner, it seemed like a good time to share this recipe. And, you know what I look forward to the most? The commercials.

BBQ RibsBBQ RibsThere’s usually one or two commercials that catch my attention during the Super Bowl. I love it when a brand can set the tone for the year without telling you to buy something. There’s a real confidence in that approach and it captures your attention. It’s memorable… in a good way.

And, in a world over saturated with ads, it’s very hard to stand out and be memorable. I hope to bring this kind of memorable experience to my photography someday.

  • 1-2 slabs Baby Back Ribs
  • Your Favorite BBQ Sauce (see BBQ Sauce below)
  • Your Favorite BBQ Rub (see BBQ Rub on below)

For the BBQ Sauce:

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoons hot sauce-optional
  • 1 tablespoon of your favorite barbecue rub
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the BBQ Rub:

  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds

Instructions

For the Ribs:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Remove the rubbery membrane on the underside of the ribs.  You can ask your butcher to do this so you don’t have to.
  3. Using a favorite BBQ rub, and working with 1 rack at a time, lay a large piece of foil on a work surface, place rack on foil, and liberally coat both sides with rub.
  4. Wrap ribs tightly with foil, making sure they’re well sealed to hold in any juices.
  5. Place rib packets on a rimmed baking sheet, bone side down.
  6. Bake until a knife can pierce meat with no resistance, about 2 hours.
  7. Remove ribs from oven. 8. Heat broiler (or grill).
  8. Unwrap ribs and brush with BBQ Sauce.
  9. Broil or grill until the sauce is bubbling and ribs are lightly charred, about 3-5 minutes, brushing with more sauce if desired.

For the BBQ Sauce:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a deep, non reactive saucepan and slowly bring to a simmer.
  2. Reduce heat to slow-simmer for about 20 minutes until thick and rich.
  3. Transfer to a clean jar and store in the fridge.

For the BBQ Rub:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir or whisk to mix.
  2. Transfer to a jar, cover and store away from heat and light.
