My husband made the most FANTASTIC ribs the other night. They were slow cooked over charcoal and I really really wish I could share how delicious they smelled with you.
I feel like you can see the goodness in the picture. It was perfectly caramelized and well, I’m pretty sure I could eat these every single day and never get sick of them.
We used a dry rub recipe we found on Epicurious. Click here to go to the website.
Here’s the recipe:
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon kosher salt1/4-½ teaspoon black pepper1 tablespoon garlic powder
½ tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
½ tablespoon or less of cayenne pepper
1-2 tablespoons chili powder
Then after they cooked, we smothered them with some sweet baby ray’s BBQ sauce and put them back on the charcoal for 5 minutes.
My aunt & uncle were over for dinner and the ribs were a huge hit. We also had some baked beans and a loaded baked potato (nothing screams country BBQ more than that). 😉
We had a bunch of ribs left over and well, rather than just eat them the same way (even though I totally could and they were amazing) I decided to make some pulled pork sandwiches. Plus, we had some yummy potato buns to use up.
I used my hands and pulled all of the pork off of the bones. Yes, it was messy and I may have eaten some as I was “pulling” it 😀
I was debating whether or not to add more BBQ sauce to it before I put it on the buns but I am SO glad I didn’t. It’s so perfect just the way it is. I did add some cheddar cheese though. 😉
