The Secret to Amazing Pork Ribs

A great BBQ rub is the secret to amazing pork ribs. We’ll show you how to make a great rub, and how to use it on your ribs.

Prepare the Rub

A good rub should be spicy and savory, with a touch of sweetness. A good rub can be made up of a number of ingredients, but must include salt pepper garlic powder onion powder chili powder sugar paprika cumin

Mix these ingredients together thoroughly in a medium bowl, then add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. The oil will help the rub stick to the rib meat better. Stir well until all the dry ingredients are moistened. It is best to make this rub at least an hour before using it, because some time resting allows the flavors to mingle.

Rubbing Ribs with BBQ Rub

The best way to apply a BBQ rub is to first remove any membrane from the back of the ribs (also known as “the fell”), and then liberally coat both sides of the ribs with yellow mustard. This will help the dry spices stick better to the meat. Then season both sides of your ribs evenly with as much rub as you like. You want there to be a nice layer of spices on all sides of each rib plate.

Cooking Ribs with BBQ

Nothing makes you look like a grill master more than a rack of ribs. It’s nearly impossible to eat them without looking like a barbarian and if you can pull them off the bone cleanly with your teeth, you’re sure to impress. The problem with ribs is that they are very easy to mess up. A lot of people have been scared away from making ribs on their own because they have turned out too tough or they’ve fallen off the bone and turned into mush.

The secret to amazing pork ribs is patience, time and a dry rub. The first key is to not rush the process. I’m always surprised at how many people want to make ribs for an evening meal, but only started thinking about it in the afternoon. You really need to plan ahead, at least one day. If you want perfect pork ribs then you need to plan for 36 hours before serving them up.

The secret to making perfect pork ribs is not some fancy sauce recipe or even a charcoal grill. It is a simple rub of salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder with one special ingredient added: dry mustard.

The dry mustard adds a little bit of heat to the rub. Mix up the ingredients and let the ribs sit overnight with the rub. Then slow roast the ribs in a 250 degree oven until they are done, about 3 hours.

Remove the ribs from the oven and slather them with your favorite barbecue sauce. Broil them for 10 minutes or so, until they are browned and glossy. Serve hot off the broiler!

The best pork ribs are moist, juicy, and tender with just the right amount of chew. They’re also richly flavored with a deep smoky flavor that has just a hint of sweetness. If you’re looking for a good recipe for ribs, this is it.

Ribs are generally cooked slow and low, over low heat for a long period of time. That’s because the connective tissue between the muscle fibers needs to be cooked to around 180°F (82°C) in order for it to be tender and gelatinous. The most common methods for cooking ribs are indirect grilling (with smoke) or braising in liquid.

In addition to being cooked until tender and moist, good ribs have a well-developed crust on the surface. This crust is often sweetened with some sort of sugar (brown sugar is commonly used) and flavored with spices like mustard powder, garlic powder, chili powder, etc. We’ll call this mixture a rub.

The first step to making great ribs is making a flavorful rub. A rub should be both savory and sweet: it should contain some kind of sugar as well as salt, pepper, spices, herbs, etc. It should also contain ingredients that will help form the crust on the meat’s

When it comes to barbecue, I’m a purist. It’s all about the meat. I don’t use a lot of seasonings or sauces, but when I do, they need to be amazing so they don’t mess up my perfectly smoked meat. After trying dozens of rubs over the years, I’ve finally found one that complements my cooking style and has become my go-to seasoning.

I first met Aaron Franklin at the Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue in Lynchburg, TN. The event is an annual competition that pits some of the best BBQ masters in the world against each other to see who can produce the best ribs, pork, and brisket. Aaron runs Franklin Barbecue in Austin, TX and took home three first place trophies at this year’s competition. After sharing a few drinks with him and talking about barbecue for half the night, we decided to meet up again next time he was in town at his restaurant.

When I was in Austin last month for South By Southwest (SXSW), we got together for dinner at his place. Aaron is one of those people you instantly feel like you’ve known forever – always smiling and cracking jokes while serving up incredible food from his barbecue trailer turned restaurant. We had brisket

A good BBQ rub is one of the easiest ways to take your BBQ ribs and other meats from good to great. You may not have even realized how important a BBQ rub can be.

Rubs are used in barbecue to create a thin coating on the surface of the meat; seasonings will penetrate into the meat during long cooking times, but salts and sugars also break down meat proteins over time, helping to form a crusty outer layer called the “bark”. Rubs are generally composed of herbs, spices and other flavorful ingredients that are blended together and then rubbed onto the surface of the meat before cooking. Some rubs contain salt or sugar, while others do not. Ingredients such as brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cumin and paprika are commonly used. Different types of rubs are used in different regions with many regional variations.
