    pork baby back ribs

    Thu Jun 28, 2012 7:28 pm Groupie
    My DH came home from the meat market with fully cooked bb ribs, but no sauce on them, as we don't care for their sauce. I wanted raw but, well, you know, things get lost in the translation! My question is, go I have any options as far as making them my own with different rubs, smoking etc., or should I simply reheat them and baste with our favorite sauce?

    Hey pammyowl. I must say you cut your husband more slack than most of us husbands ever see. Good for you!

    Options on seasonings are wide open. As are options on sauces. But smoke...there's not a lot you can add to fully cooked babybacks.I guess you could start and handfull of coals and add wood chips so that you "cold smoke" the ribs. I wouldn't mess with that.

    A good bet would be to season the ribs with paprika, garlic power, oregano and apply a pepper jelly as a glaze. I'd stick 'em on the grill under low heat (300F) for 30 to 45 minutes. The heat from a pepper jelly isn't so bad once cooked. I have glazed with pineapple habanero jelly with great success. If you are not a pepper jelly fan, a good sauce as a glaze works too.

    Great idea! I have some pepper jelly just waiting to be used, thanks! BTW, my favorite pepper jelly is raspberry jalapeno closely followed by apricot jalapeno. Yum!

    Do you make your pepper jellies or buy them? If so, where?

    Both, but I usually buy them at our local Farmers Market. I have a bread and sweets stand there, so I barter! How about you?

    Those pepper jellys sound fantastic.

    For further reference ...

    I have cooked my ribs ahead for parties and then depending on what seasoning they had. I usually just season with salt and pepper and then I rely on the glaze for all the sauce.

    I reheat mine wrapped in foil with the s/p and a little beer for a little moisture in the foil.

    Then after 20-30 minutes, once warmed through, remove from the foil and add to the grill and then glaze.My favorite is my mango chipotle glaze, but at that point you can use your favorite sauce. There are options galore.

    I do love pepper jelly. I also get my at my Farmers Market.

    Good to know, thanks. Now I'll have to pry a beer out of DH's hot little hands! Ha!
