BBQ Ribs

With summer on it's way out, I had to share this BBQ Pork Ribs recipe with you before it's too late. The light is already changing here in Idaho. It's taking on that yellowy gauzy cast which reminds me of sunsets. It gets me a little bit excited for fall, but at the same time I'm sorry that summer is coming to an end.

This is the spice rub, which you rub all over the racks of ribs then cover and refrigerate overnight.

The secret to great ribs is not only in the sauce, but also to cook them long and low. Something I don't always have the patience for.

It's worth it though. By the way, there's really no way to eat ribs daintily. They're finger food. Smashley was trying to cut at them with her knife and fork and she wasn't getting anything. It was hilarious. Of course, I took it upon myself to make fun of her. Some things were made to be eaten with your hands, OCD issues and all.

In fact, Stinkerbell has a little trick for food like this. She takes a wad of napkins in each hand and then grabs the food with them. Sure, you end up eating a little napkin that way, but if you're an OCD freak like her, apparently it's worth it.

I think you should make some BBQ ribs this weekend. And if you want to eat them while wearing rubber gloves, I won't tell.


  1. Rubber gloves?! I think not. One of my fav parts about eating ribs is enjoying the saucey goodness left on my fingers afterwards ;)
    nope: not very dainty of me!

  2. We had them last weekend! Delish... I just cook the heck out of them in the oven...slow and low for about 4 hours and then end with them on the grill... and slathered with my favorite sauce...

  3. I at least take the rubber gloves off to eat ribs!

  4. darn you, making me hungry again!

    (okay so I was already hungry but this post didn't help anything!)

  5. Mmmmmm, looks deliciously delicious! Isn't it time for dinner yet?

  6. All week long I manage to lose weight and then you go and post something as luscious as this! Damn you woman!

  8. I would be the one wearing rubber gloves, I am afraid!
    That sounds soooooo good-I will be getting my hubby to make this ASAP!

  9. Oh.My.Yum.

    What time's dinner? I think we could make it to your house by dinner if we left now. And for ribs, the hubs would be willing to travel two states!

    Cheers, Kiy

  10. I think I just drooled on myself!
