I've noticed that several rib recipes call for boiling the ribs, before grilling, smoking or whatever...this is just WRONG! No matter what seasoning you put in the water, boiling takes away the flavor of the pork, plain & simple! Boiling ribs will NOT make them moist! The rib meat should be PULLED off the bone...NOT fall off! Steaming the Ribs, like this will enhance the flavor & help the seasoning penetrate. You can use either Baby Back or St. Louis style ribs for this.
