I’m not sure when ribs began showing up on our family menus, but I’m so glad they did. Ribs are a special treat around here because they are expensive, but they’re easy and oh, so yummy. Whenever we eat one of these extravagant meals, I remind myself what the same meal would cost if we ate it in a restaurant. With that perspective, even filet mignon and lobster are a bargain. Hear that, honey?
This is a super easy recipe, I promise, but there is some time involved, so read the recipe carefully and plan ahead. I even prepared a little video for you to demonstrate the hardest part of the recipe – removing that tough piece of tissue from the back of the ribs.
Make sure you give yourself time for the full process: you need to prepare the rub, clean the ribs, apply the rub and allow “marinating” time, then there’s the baking time, preparing the sauce time, then grilling time. Altogether, this recipe takes about 24 hours, but less than an hour of active work. Trust me, it’s all worth it. Really, really worth it.
