How to Make Outstanding BBQ Ribs w/ Sauce


  1. BBQ Sauce (40 yr. old recipe). I hope you'll give this recipe a try. If you do, be sure to leave myself a comment or two in the section at the bottom of this page and let me know ... Greatly Appreciated, Cyann : - )
  2. In a 3 qt. non-reactive saucepan, combine ketchup, vinegar, water, brown sugar, mustard, pepper, salt, cayenne, lemon juice, onion, and garlic.
  3. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 hr. Add the liquid smoke and bring to a boil .Makes about 1 3/4 cups.
  4. Spice Rub

    Rub is great with coat 2 pounds of chicken, beef, pork, or seafood with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with 2 to 4 tablespoons of the rub.
  5. Combine the spices, and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 months.
    Rub the spice rub on ribs before cooking, the spice rub forms a coat on the food. The ribs can be marinated in the spice rub for up to 2 hours before cooking, some time for the flavors to incorporate into the meat or it can be cooked immediately after it is coated in the rub.
  6. Meat, beef. pork or chicken!!!
  7. Grilling:
    Prepare the grill for direct and indirect cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).
    Brush the cooking grates clean. Place the ribs on the grill, , bone side down, to begin cooking. Avoid the ribs touching. Sear the ribs over direct medium heat with the lid closed as much as possible, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes, turning once.
    Open the lid, and evenly pour some BBQ Sauce over the ribs. Grill the ribs over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, until very tender, about 1¾ hours, turning once.
    When the meat starts to pull away from the end of the bones, use the tongs to wiggle a rib to test. Meat should be tender, and be loose from the bone, when done. Serve the ribs hot with the reserved BBQ Sauce.

    I hope you'll give this recipe a try. If you do, be sure to leave myself a comment or two in the section at the bottom of this page and let me know ... Greatly Appreciated, Cyann : - )
