Barbecue Maple Ribs

This cracking recipe, shows you some of the tricks to get the best BBQ ribs. Have a look at my Barbecue Maple Ribs to see how I get the best out of a rack.

 

Dinosaur Ribs.

I love this cut of beef, so tender and moist, with a great  deep beefy taste, and a few decent sized bones to gnaw on caveman style. I usally ask for a rack of 3 or 4 short ribs with a good cap of meat and fat on.

The sign that lets you know this has been cooked in a real BBQ style is the “Smoke Ring” the lovely pink ring around the edge, and the wonderful savoury crust, known to those who love BBQ as the bark.

I used a competition BBQ rub I had been given to try, and rubbed this in deeply into the meat and fat, and then popped on my  Bullet Smoker, with some cherry and maple wood smoking, and cooked at 140 deg C for 3 hours, a little hotter than usual, but it worked really well. I took the internal temperature of the meat up to 80 deg C and then mopped with some Jack Daniels BBQ marinade. and left for another half an hour for this to set.

I allowed it to rest for 15 minutes, and served in great thick slices with some pickled gherkins and beer.

 

Some seriously thick ribs.

One of the benefits of establishing a good relationship with a quality butcher or smallholder is that you can get hold of cuts of meat that are exactly what you are after. I’m lucky that my neighbours at Pitmans Farm  are able to supply me with some cracking quality rare breed meat to my request. I love ribs, but I often feel a bit hard done by when there’s not much meat on them, and the butcher has been too efficient at removing the belly.

So when I was able to get my hands on these ribs with a thick juicy layer of belly on, I knew I’d be on to a good thing. I gave them a good rub down with brown sugar and then a cajun dry rub pimped up with extra smoked paprika. I gave them 4 hours in the smoker with Apple wood smoke at 110 degC, before brushing with a spicy BBQ marinade and direct grilling for another hour until the outside is temptingly smoky and crusty, and allow to rest out for 20 minutes. It was obligatory to have these with homemade coleslaw, a cold beer, and seriously sticky fingers.
