BBQ Ribs Recipe

My BBQ Ribs recipe is one of my favorites. I love me some ribs, but only if they are cooked right. This recipe is for pork ribs, but you can substitute beef if that is your preference.

I don't settle for those thin rib racks. I prefer the larger, thicker ribs that actually have more meat then bones. You can cook the thinner ones, but the times will be a little different.

For this recipe, I speed up the cooking process by precooking the pork ribs by boiling them, otherwise it takes forever to cook them on the grill. Unless you have a long time to cook, then you can just cook them on the grill.

Do not boil beef ribs. These are better just cooked on the grill.

BBQ Ribs

Ingredients if Boiling First
Two (2) Pounds Pork Ribs (Individually Cut, Thick)
Two (2) Tablespoons Minced Garlic
One (1) Whole Apple, Pealed and Chopped
One Half (1/2) Sweet Onion Chopped
Four (4) Cups of Water

Two (2) Tablespoons of A1 Steak Sause
One (1) Teaspoon Ground Pepper

Place water, minced garlic, chopped apples, and chopped onions, in a large pot and bring water to a boil. Once boiling, add two pounds of pork ribs. Let boil for fifteen (15) minutes.

Raw Pork Ribs

Remove ribs from boiling water and place in a large container. Add marinade mixture once ribs have cooled for ten minutes. Vigorously shake container until all ribs are thoroughly coated with marinade. Let ribs sit for twenty (20) minutes.

SIDE NOTE: If you prefer not to boil your ribs first or if you are using beef ribs, skip the boiling steps for your bbq ribs recipe and go straight to the marinade.

Once grill is at about 350 degrees, place the ribs on the grill grate, meat side down first. Rotate the meat one quarter (1/4) turn every four minutes, basting the remaining marinade on each rib throughout the entire cooking time.

Cooking time for the bbq ribs recipe is about twenty (20) minutes depending on how thick the meat is. Grill for about one (1) hour if you skipped the boiling step. Do not baste marinade on the ribs during the last flip.
