Great Ribs

June 13, 2016

I love all kinds of BBQ, but good ribs are almost impossible to beat. There are several types of ribs to select from, and preparing them can be intimidating. For pork ribs there are Spare Ribs, St. Louis Style (a uniformly trimmed Spare Rib), and Baby Backs. Spares are the least expensive, and Baby Backs are packed with meaty loin-type meat. Beef ribs are usually back ribs, but you can sometimes find "short" ribs at the grocery store. If you want to try ribs for the first time try this. Get a rack of St. Louis Style Spare Ribs. I highly recommend Smithfield Extra Tender (available at a lot of Wal-Mart stores now). These relatively inexpensive and the difficult trimming is already done. Prepare them in a way that you are comfortable with, but try wrapping in aluminum foil for the last 25-50% of your cook. There are a lot of factors to take into account, but if you are grilling over direct medium-high heat try grilling for 45 minutes followed by a 45 minute wrapped cooking time. If you are smoking low and slow try smoking for 2.5 hours followed by a 2.5 hour wrap at around 250. The wrapping process will result in very tender ribs. If you want the meat to "fall of the bone" give it a little extra time in the foil and add some of your favorite liquid. Beer and squeeze butter are two excellent choices. Good luck!
