Personally, I smoke them. What's your preference?

I boil them. That's the only way to make sure they are done in time for the half time show. I learned it from a Bobby Flay TV show. Yes, that's right, Bobby Flay himself. I'm sorry to start throwing names around but I feel that it's important that you know my pedigree.

BTW - The package I promised you was put in the mail today sent out priority mail so expect it around Monday or Tuesday.

No pics just yet, but I'll explain the process I use. Remember, this is a recipe given to me by a bbq guru. It comes from generations of finite changes.

First ya gotta take the ribs and jam them into a sock.
Then you want to wrap that in aluminum foil.
Put the package in a tree for half an hour.
Set the package into a pot of boiling water. It must be a rolling boil.
Wait 47 minutes
Remove the ribs from the sock, but not the foil.
Insert back into the water still at a rolling boil for another 15 minutes.
Remove the ribs from the foil and season according to taste.

Serve with boiled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

grandma's precious family rib boiling recipe.. you heard me

El Ropo
08-27-2011, 12:47 AM
What would you suggest?

My first option would be hot and fast, with no foiling. Cooked @ 275-300 for 3.75-4.00 hours. Another would be cooking @ 250 no foil for 4.5ish hours. The other choices would involve foil and BBQ voodoo (I don't like to use foil during a cook, turns meat into mush).

Basically, the simpler, and less effort @ higher heat is the best way for me.

I'm a lazy SOB who happens to love great BBQ without jumping through all the (pre-conceived) hoops.

One thing I'll say since you asked is "225" is not the magic number for any type of meat. IMO, most types of meat benefit from higher temps and shorter cooking times.

You asked, sorry for the rant.

Well, boiling is one of the fundamental ways of cooking. So, boiling ribs could be a good way of cooking them under the right conditions. It wouldn't be BBQ but it can probably turn out some good ribs with the right recipe.

brewerjamie15
08-27-2011, 06:43 AM
Wouldn't you need to leave the membrane on? I would fully imagine that in the level 2 method the ribs would be so tender the membrane is the only thing holding them together. Maybe use the weed burner method mentioned earlier for that last lick of color.

Man, this post made me laugh! I can identify!

for the lonngest time I used to rub the ribs, steam the ribs in a pan with 1" water and 2-3 lemons- in the oven for 2.5 hrs at 200-225.

Slap on the brinkmann offset smoker for 2 hours (or until I was beered out), then sauce and serve after the sauce carmelized.

They actually always turned out pretty good.

There are a couple of members of the family who still like this method better.

Sounds good. I love store brand q. Have you tried Dollar Store brand? I think I may modify it by cutting the smoke down .5 hour and using a pressure cooker to finish.

You guys got it all wrong
Here's the only way to cook ribs, Works for chicken too.

First, cut the slab into individual ribs,
then place in a 9x13" glass oven baking pan,
cover liberally with Kraft's Hickory BBQ sauce,
cover with foil tightly,
then into the oven at 300 degrees for an hour.


Best ribs you'll ever eat. Did I mention this works for chicken, too?

Enjoy,

Over the years I've had many people tell me their secret rib recipe when they find out I like to Q. I've heard every variation of boiled, braised, baked and everything in between. I try to not be judgmental and to remember we all start somewhere and maybe give some guidance.

I only laugh at the blow hards that tell me I don't know what I'm doing and that if the rack doesn't fall apart when you try to take one, it's not done or as good as Tony Roma's.

No kidding. Why would anyone want to "prepare" their own ribs -- spend hours boiling them, baking... whatever -- when the best ribs you can get are available at your local McDonald's for at least two months out of the year. Besides, ribs are a "sometimes" food. You shouldn't eat them but once every blue moon.

You never said what type of sock: Clean or Dirty. So, the wifey had not done laundry, and I used a dirty sock.

Let me tell you one thing right now; I aint even gonna try a clean sock. The recipe using a dirty sock is da bomb!!!!

Nice!!

:sick:

BTW, I am a little upset in that when I was done, the laundry still was not finished so I had the wear the sock I used for the ribs when I went to work the next day. Still can't figure out why nobody wanted to get close to me the entire day........................:icon_blush:
