On Memorial Day my husband and I decided to have a barbecue with some good friends. The food of choice was ribs and it was amazing. Everyone enjoyed it so much I decided to share our system with you. System seems like a funny word to use, but let me explain. Once my husband decides we are barbecuing there is a twinkle in his eye and a bounce in his step. We have a plan of action that we follow, just as a builder has blue prints for a house. Below you can find our blue prints BBQ Ribs.
Country Style Pork Ribs
Memphis BBQ r.u.b from s.a.l.t. Sisters
BBQ sauce of choice, we used a homemade one
1. A couple of hours before you start grilling, pull the ribs out of the fridge to bring to room temperature.
2. At that same time, start soaking your Applewood Chips in water. This keeps your wood chips from burning and adds a smoked flavor to your ribs.
3. An hour after the ribs have been setting out, rub your choice of rub on all sides of your meat. A good rub will enhance the meat but not overpower it.
4. Next we get the grill set up. This is a key part in the process, make sure to check out the picture closely. We placed a disposable foil pan on the left side with 2 inch of water in it. Then on right hand side we placed the hot charcoal.
5. Next take out the soaking Applewood Chips and place in a tin foil. This should be placed on the grill above the charcoal. This will add an Applewood smoked flavor. Hickory is another popular wood chip to use.
6. Next we place the Ribs above the water. The ribs are then cooked by steam and smoke for 1.5 hours. Only take the lid to flip the Ribs every 20 minutes or so.
7. Once the ribs are ready to come off bast with your BBQ sauce.
