adventures in making barbeque ribs.
i’ve always been into ribs, but had never made my own. a recent grocery store visit and ribs were on sale, it was a sign, so i purchased 2 slabs.
i rinsed and dried them both off and then removed their membranes which is real crucial. i then patted one slab down with my previously made mocha java dry rub which i had only previously used on chicken (which didn’t work too well). the other one i marinated in a fresh batch of boubon whisky bbq sauce. i let these sit in the fridge overnight.
i cut each slab in half and wrapped it in foil. i baked them for 2.5 hours at 300 degrees, then applied sauce to both of them and broiled for 10 minutes (noticed the sauce start to burn and pulled em just in time). i’ve heard mixed things of cooking with sauce versus without, apparently the sauce burns which is why people prefer dry rubs but i had no problem. they turned out pretty perfect. both types were very juicy and falling off the bone. the sauce was fucking great on them too! they were both good but my girlfriend and i both preferred the coffee dry rubbed ones. it didn’t have a very coffee-ey taste, but was a real nice blend of spices, very earthy. again, the sauce on them sealed the deal :D
