Barbecue Ribs

Grilling season is here!! Don’t you just love it when you’re driving or working outside and can smell the amazing aroma of someone grilling out? One thing that screams summer in our house is cooking on the grill! Many nights for dinner and on the weekends we are making meals on the grill.

I am a big fan of ribs as well as barbecue. Actually, when my husband and I travel, we like to find different BBQ restaurants to try out. We have been to so many awesome ones!

We like to make different kinds of barbecue meals at home too and on the grill! Barbecue ribs are definitely a family favorite in our house! All of our kids like them, so ribs go over very well.

This recipe for barbecue ribs gives you fall-off-the-bone ribs that are deliciously packed with the smoky, barbecue flavor of summer. Recipe makes about 2 cups of barbecue sauce.

Barbecue Ribs

Ingredients

  • 4-5 lbs. baby back pork ribs (approx.)
  • Your favorite rub (I use Dairy Good BBQ Rub)
  • 1 C. red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 C. hot water
  • 1/2 C. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. papirika
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Clabber Girl Corn Starch mixed with 1/2 C. cold water

Directions

Put ribs out on a large baking sheet. Generously apply rub to both sides of the ribs. Place the ribs on the grill and cook until tender, but not falling apart, about 1 to 1.5 hours, make up the barbecue sauce, while they are cooking.

Mix the Clabber Girl Corn Starch with the cold water and set aside.

In a medium sauce pan, combine the water and brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat and cook for 3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, including the corn starch mixture, and mix together well. Bring the mixture back to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes uncovered. Remove from heat and cool at room temperature. The sauce will then thicken.

About 20 minutes before the ribs are cooking, brush the barbecue sauce to both sides of the ribs. Layer on a heavy amount for extra barbecue flavor. Remove ribs from grill and enjoy.
