Pork ribs are one of the best things to eat off the BBQ and when served at a party your friends and family are sure to keep coming back for more. Unfortunately, cooking the perfect BBQ pork ribs can take time and practice. Here are some tips for how to cook pork ribs on a BBQ.
The Secret is in the Sauce
One of the things that really adds a kick to pork ribs and makes them extra juicy is the sauce. Part of the trick to getting the sauce or marinade just right is to add it after the ribs are cooked halfway through so that it won’t burn on the grill. You can have fun experimenting with different types of ingredients such as oranges, ginger and lime to get the sauce that is sure to satisfy and there are hundreds of variations to be tried.
Choosing the Ribs
It is also important to consider the type of ribs that you want to BBQ, as this will make a difference to the way that they will cook or taste. Baby back ribs are generally the most popular and easiest to cook, but it is a good idea to look at the other options as well and make the decision for yourself.
Slow Cooking or Baking
This is a very personal choice and it will depend on a lot of different factors such as how much time you have to cook the ribs, the flavors that you like best and the equipment that you have at your disposal.
Adding a Little Alcohol
Adding a little beer or another type of alcohol to the mix can add a great kick to your ribs. However, it is important to note that certain spirits are highly flammable, so you don’t want to overdo it.
