Dutch Oven Barbecue Ribs

I cook these in a dutch oven (cast iron with lid). You can also use any heavy covered pan. Or cook them at your campsite with 10 charcoals on the bottom and 14 on top of your dutch oven maintaining 160 degrees. Be sure to have rolls or corn bread on hand.

  3. Cook for 15 minutes, just simmering, stir often.
  4. Add ribs and cover with lid.
  5. Cook in a slow oven, 250 degrees, for 2-3 hours or until tender.

We got a new dutch oven for Christmas, so we were hunting for some tasty meal recipes. We made this on New Year's Day and they were a big hit! Thank you for a keeper!!
