When it comes to good meals, there’s few things that can beat something home cooked. Restaurants can come close, but there’s just something about home cooking, a little something extra that restaurant and fast food meals just can’t offer. Some call it love – either love of cooking, love for those the food is being prepared for, or just love for life.
First thing first is that all of them give the meat the proper respect. Great ribs can only happen when the meat is taken care of properly, and cooked to perfection. Even a great sauce can’t hide tough, overcooked ribs! So be sure to slow cook your ribs for about six hours before you even start grilling them.
The other thing all great recipes have in common is a good sauce, and limited grilling time. You’ll only need to grill the ribs for about ten minutes, but you’ll baste the sauce on a few times, to caramelize and hold the meat together. Three coats of sauce is about perfect for any BBQ ribs recipe. And the perfect sauce? Well, that depends on your taste! Sweet, spicy, both? It’s all up to you. You can also use injectors to add flavor inside your meat.
And of course, one final tip of advice. Even the best BBQ ribs recipe won’t be perfect without good grilling and slow barbeque grill equipment. So if you can, use a high quality pig roasting box like those made by La Caja China. And if you’re stuck for sauce recipes and want to try something new, give their marinating sauces a try. They are pretty darn amazing!
