The Ultimate Barbecued Ribs Recipe

The Ultimate Barbecued Ribs Recipe

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Put the ribs on a baking sheet, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Stick them in the oven, and let the ribs bake, low and slow for 1 1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, make the sauce. Wrap the bacon around the middle of the thyme sprigs and tie with kitchen twine so you have a nice bundle. Heat a 2count of oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the thyme bundle and cook slowly for 3 to 4 minutes to render the bacon fat and give the sauce a nice smoky taste. Add the onion and garlic and cook slowly, without coloring, for 5 minutes. Add all of the rest of the sauce ingredients, give the sauce a stir, and turn the heat down to low. Cook slowly for 20 minutes to meld the flavors. Put some sauce in a separate bowl for basting, reserving the remaining sauce for serving.

Baste the ribs with the sauce and let them continue cooking, basting twice more, for 30 more minutes. When the ribs are cooked, take them out of the oven. You can let them hang out like this until youre ready to eat.

When ready to eat, preheat the broiler for 5 minutes and broil the ribs, basting with the sauce. They should become crisp and charred, about 5 minutes on each side. Pick the onion and garlic out of the sauce and serve with ribs.

We found the cooking time to be off to insure the meat breaks down to it tenderest. 3 hours at 250 then 1.5 hours basting every 30 minutes. Finally 20 minutes over a hot fire to caramelize. I placed stripes of bacon over the ribs while they were cooking. Added a rally nice flavor. As for the sauce, we found it overly sweet so we added 1T of cayenne and 1/2 cup of white wine vinegar. If you like a little heat, you can add more! After basting, we threw the sauce into the blended with all ingredients except the thyme and blended it into a nice consistency.
