    The Chillichick's Note:

    My own recipe for a sweet spicy sauce to simmer beef ribs, then smoke them on the pit. Lots of room for variation, even if you don't have the exact ingedients!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    Ribs

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 beef ribs (7-8 ribs each rack)
    • 1892.5 ml apple juice (Organic fresh is best, but any apple juice or apple cider will work, *1)
    • 946.25-3785.0 ml water (*1)
    • 236.59 ml brown sugar (packed)
    • 59.14 ml molasses (Sorghum or Black Strap is best)
    • 59.14 ml apple cider vinegar
    • 29.58 ml Braggs liquid aminos (*2)
    • 5-8 garlic cloves (smashed or chopped doesn't really matter)
    • 14.79 ml black pepper
    • 4 dried guajillo chilies, de-stemmed, de-seeded, torn up in pieces (*3)
    • 7.39 ml cayenne powder
    • 29.58 ml allspice (optional if you don't have any, but really this is the "secret" ingredient., *4)
    • 14.79 ml chili powder

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Add everything to pot big enough to completely immerse your ribs. Pot should be big enough to completely submerge your ribs. I cut my racks down to 2-3 rib pieces. Not in singles or they dry out to much.
    2. 2
      Simmer, covered on low for 45-60 minutes. DO NOT BOIL!
    3. 3
      Transfer to barrel pit or smoker, and smoke for 1-2 hours.
    4. 4
      Use a brush or mop to baste a couple of times while on the barbecue.
    5. 5
      *1- In general the ratio for liquid is 2 to 1 apple cider. I have added beer, wine, a cup of leftover coffee, orange juice, etc. Just be sure your ribs are completely covered.
    6. 6
      *2- You can use Worcestershire sauce, Soy sauce, or some other equivalent. All of these are salty which is why I do not add any other salt, it dries out the meat. It is betterr to add the salt while you are eating!
    7. 7
      *3- You could use any mild/medium dried chili, or if you don't have any just use more Chili power, Cayenne powder or Chipotle powder.
    8. 8
      *4- Allspice really gives this that something special, but if you don't have any try a little cloves, cinnamon or nutmeg. (But NOT a whole tablespoon of these spice.).
    9. 9
      I have only ever smoked these using mesquite, or charcoal with some pecan or peach. I don't know how oak or hickory will affect the flavors.
