Blue Ribbon Recipe

Placing the rub on the ribs so far in advance really helps the spices and flavors permeate the pork. The rub gives the pork a nice crust too. The sauce caramelizes on the ribs as the cook and is sweet with a little kick of spice. The meat is juicy and just falls right off the bone. These will be fantastic at your next cookout. Just make sure to have wet paper towels handy.
