BBQ Contest

These ribs take a long time to slow cook, but the results are beyond finger licking good.

Things you will need:
Pork bareback ribs
Marinade of your choice (I prefer Stubbs)
BBQ sauce of your choice (I prefer Stubbs or Sweet Baby Rays)
Dish (Glass cake pan will work)
Aluminum foil
Brush to spread BBQ sauce
Gas or Charcoal Grill

Step 1: Marinade

Put the ribs in shallow dish, meaty side down (can be glass, ceramic, whatever you have that that will fit the ribs in). Add your marinade. Then cover, and put into the fridge overnight.

Step 2: Pour Out Marinade

Pour out your marinade. You can leave a little of it in your dish to help add more flavor as you cook. However, I recommend that you don't leave all of your marinade in your dish.

Once you pour out your marinade re-cover with aluminum foil.

Step 3: Preheat Your Oven & Cook

Preheat your oven to 250°F

Place your covered ribs in the oven.

Now cook at 250°F for 3-4 hours. Set it and forget it. There is no need to do anything until your ready to BBQ.

Step 4: Time to BBQ!

First prepare your grill. I prefer charcoal so that's what I am using.

The trick to charcoal grilling is to let your lighter fluid soak for a couple minutes.
Also, remember to allow your charcoal to turn white to almost white before grilling. It allows for a more even burn.

Step 5: Finish Off Your Ribs!

After your charcoal has turned white to almost white it's time to start adding ribs and BBQ sauce.

First place your meat onto the grill (may already be falling off the bone so be careful).

Second add your favorite BBQ sauce spreading on in a nice even layer with a brush.
Cover up your grill and allow to cook for 10-15 minutes.

Third Flip meat and repeat by adding more BBQ sauce and cooking for 10-15 minutes.

Step 6: ENJOY!

Now your ribs are done. Eat and Enjoy the mouth watering fall off the bone ribs you just made. It took awhile to make, but the satisfaction of eating them is well worth it. If you happen to have leftovers (which I doubt you will) you can make an amazing pulled pork sandwich. Enjoy!

    O.k., I made these for my sweetie and he said they were terrific! His sister loved them too. They smelled wonderful. I didn't have any because I'm a vegetarian, but don't put my beliefs onto others. We had corn on the cob, baked beans and baked potatoes. A great meal for all:) It did take a long time to cook, and the kitchen smelled so good:) Thanks for the recipe.


    I'm glad they enjoyed them!

    Ribs look awesome. I don't agree with others though to use a charcoal chimney instead of lighter fluid to light the BBQ

    Sorry... I meant I DO agree to use a chimney starter..

    for those who don't know a chimney looks like this.
