Have you ever wondered how to make bbq ribs? If you have then it is the right time to learn since you can make them at home and serve your family’s favorite food. Here I am going to give you some tips on how to cook this popular meat.
The secret to BBQ ribs is to start them out on an indirect heat source. That would be on a hot grill or in a smoker. If you want to smoke your ribs then you will need a wet rub. A dry rub is just seasoned meat that can be sprinkled on or added to the marinade to make a more tasty and flavorful rub. You can find it in any grocery store or spice aisle.
To cook your ribs, you first need to take your pork ribs and rub them with your wet rub. Rub this all over both sides of your ribs and let it sit for about five minutes. After the five minutes are up place your ribs on the hot grill or smoker for about one hour. During this time you are going to want to turn the meat. This will help to seal in the juices from the marinade and let the meat cook thoroughly.
Now it is time to caramelize your ribs. You will want to put your ribs on a barbecue while they are still warm but not hot enough to burn your mouth. Allow the ribs to sit for about five minutes and then add your barbecue sauce and let this sit for another five minutes. After the fifth minute, you will want to remove your ribs from the grill or smoker and let them sit for another five minutes.
The next step is to brush your bbq ribs with a flavored sauce brush, like a Brandywine or Sweet Wood. Brush this over both sides and then again brush this on the inside of your rib. Let this sit for another ten minutes. At the end of the tenth minute, you are going to want to remove the brush from your ribs and wipe off any BBQ sauce that might be left.
For the last step, we will continue to caramelize our ribs with the same BBQ sauce and brush. After the brush is done you will take your grill or smoker out of the grill and set it over medium heat. Once your grill is nice and hot, add your water and allow your meat to cook on the grill for the remaining ten minutes. Once your meat cooks completely remove it from the grill and let sit for five minutes.
After the ribs have cooked for the appropriate amount of time you can serve them. For an authentic BBQ taste, you can add a dry rub to your BBQ ribs before serving them. The dry rub will help to give your ribs that nice sweet and smoky flavor. A good dry rub should be made by blending dry mustard seeds, Cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, garlic, onions, and spicy pepper all together until you have a thin consistent mixture.
If you would like to ensure that your BBQ ribs are very tender you should follow several steps. First, make sure that your ribs are well-rested by letting them sit overnight in the refrigerator. Next, to help keep your ribs from drying out you should place them in aluminum foil. This will help to keep the moisture away from your ribs as well as allow them to sit longer before cooking. Finally, you should use a barbecue rub to give your ribs that wonderful, tender taste.
