Simple Clean and Homemade I Ribs 3

I have a confession. Up until about two weeks ago I had never tried ribs. For some reason, I thought they were just bones with a tiny bit of meat and some sauce on them. What really could be so special? But, people are talking about how much they love ribs all the time. I really was starting to feel left out. Had everyone else in the whole world really tried ribs? Was I the only person who was left? I decided that it was time to try ribs. I wanted to make my own so I could use my own flavor combinations.

I started at the butcher counter. I asked about different kinds of ribs and how they work. After a few giggles, I was directed towards baby back pork ribs. They said that as long as I cook them at a low temperature and used a sauce that I liked, they would be good. Really they are no fail. I decided to use the oven then grill method that I read about on about a million websites. From there, I took all my knowledge from my research and created a rub to start cooking.

So ribs are pretty delicious and they have a lot more meat than I thought. Plus, who doesn’t love caramelized barbecue sauce anyway?I have to say, I see what all the fuss is about. Sticky, sweet, tangy, meaty. A great grilled/oven meal. Perfect for father’s day. Plus, if you make the rub, you can use the leftover rub for the sauce. Easy.
