I have been preparing baby back pork ribs this way for a long time (29 years) and they always get great reviews. I have been doing it so long, I can't remember where it originated. You can use your favorite BBQ sauce on them, but I like Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse.
- In a large pot bring water to boil.
- While water is heating up, remove baby back racks from plastic.
- Turn the racks over and remove the membrane from the back. (It is a thin piece of membrane that covers the back of the ribs which can be removed by getting a knife in under it at one of the ends, and then grabbing it with your hand and pulling it all the way down the rack and off.).
- If you can't get the membrane off, it is edible.
- (LOL! I cooked the ribs with it on for years as I didn't know any better!).
- Now, cut the ribs apart.
- Places ribs in boiling water and bring back to a boil.
- Reduce to simmer for 1-hour.
- Remove throughly cooked ribs from pot and turn off stove.
- Place in a bowl and cover with BBQ sauce.
- Refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Heat up grill to high (gas) and then lower heat to medium.
- Place ribs on grill and coat each rib with BBQ sauce.
- (I use the sauce from the bottom of the bowl).
- Grill them for 15 minutes per side or until hot.
- Enjoy! Yum!
- Alternative: Can be broiled in oven instead of grilled for winter months.
Absolutely delicious! I made them as posted, except I cut the recipe in half. I used Stubbs spicy BBQ sauce. This was quick and easy to prepare. I also cut them down to 3-4 ribs per portion. They were falling off the bone good. Thanks for posting. :)
Bloody brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!
Great ribs! They weren't permeated with the wonderful smokey flavor from cooking all day on the grill, but these are a great "quick fix". I soaked hickory chips for 24 hours before starting my fire, so that they would have a little bit of authentic smokey taste. I made half with mustard based sauce, and half with regular red barbecue sauce. I think I preferred the mustard sauce, but only because the red sauce seemed to burn a bit on the grill. I will definitely make these again, because they are so quick and easy to do. And sometimes you only have a few hours to do your ribs! Thanks for sharing a recipe that I'll make again and again!
