Kowboy's Baby Back Ribs

The Menu:
Kowboy's Baby Back Ribs

The Original Recipe:
I have never bought a slab of pork ribs before. When I saw them at the butcher shop, they were just staring at me to buy them. So, I did. These were the best ribs I have ever had. I don't know if it was because they were fresh, or if it was the technique that I used. Either way, I will be making these for my oldest son when he comes home from vacation this summer. They were delicious! They fell apart and just melted in your mouth. If you are like me, then I cannot stand to eat fatty meats. The gristle and fat just gross me out. These were so tender, that all the fat on them just melted into meat and the taste was just off the hook. I did good. Real good. So good in fact that we ate them all before I even thought about a picture! I was to busy licking my fingers to care. Nice. *A picture has appeared! I made them for my teenager, and he loved them!

Kowboy’s Baby Back Ribs

2 lb. slab of Ribs

Rib Rub (You may double depending on how many ribs you have):

2tbls. chili powder

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. dry mustard

1 tsp. smoked paprika

1/2 tsp. ground coriander

2 tsp. McCormick steak seasoning

1 tsp. oregano

a few pinches of kosher salt

1 tsp. black pepper

1 tbls brown sugar

Homemade BBQ Sauce:

1 cup ketchup (we use Hines!)

1/8 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1 tbls.. Worcestershire sauce

1 tbls honey (you can omit if you like tangy sauce)

1-2 tbls. rub mix

Mix together Seasonings. Rub on slab of Ribs reserving about 1-2 tbls. of rub mix. Slow roast them in a covered baking pan on 200 degrees for about 6-8 hours(You could easily use a large crockpot or an electric roasting pan). 

Meanwhile, mix up your BBQ sauce. Mix the remaining rub with ketchup, apple cider, Worcestershire  sauce and honey.  Set aside.

After the 6-8 hours heat up your grill and  slide ribs onto the grill.  Baste the ribs with sauce while they cook on the grill to crisp up the outsides or until they fall apart (about 10 minutes each side) .
