Barbequed Rib’s

IMG_0193

This  recipe is for my Barbequed Rib’s . I use this on all the ribs that I do .  I start about three hours before I cook them .  I mix the marinade which I will be giving you.

You will need enough racks of ribs to feed your family so however many you like.  The amount is definitely optional  when it comes to the quantity of meat.  I use two racks about 14 inches long , there is just two of us and that gives us enough for lunch the next day or unexpected company.

So in a large plastic bag zip lock one if you can , put the ribs into it take  1 – orange or lemon cut in half and squeeze the juice out of it and through the orange in also .  3- cloves of garlic smashed  , 1/2 onion chunked , 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard , 1 teaspoon of Cayenne , 1 teaspoon salt , 2 Tablespoons of Hot chili paste , 1 Teaspoon of cumin , 1/2 teaspoon of paprika , 1/2 cup of oil ( this can be either olive oil or oil of your choice ) 1/4 cup brown sugar .   Mix this around thoroughly  rubbing the ribs so they are all covered . Put into a bowl and refrigerate two to three hours. If you have double the amount of meat then you have to double the marinade recipe .

Heat your barbeque to 350 degrees and lay the ribs on the rack close the lid and let cook.  keeping your eye on them so they do not burn.  Once they start to cook and are browned on either side. Turn one side of you barbeque off and leave the ribs on the side that there is no flame , turn them down to 250  degrees and let cook slow and long .  After about an hour start brushing them with barbeque sauce turning and repeating this until they are visibly tender and starting to come apart. Take the ribs off put them on a plate wrap it with tin foil and let the ribs rest for about fifteen minutes before cutting them up and serving them .

The Barbeque Sauce that I use is a homemade recipe that I have had for years.

In a large sauce pan combine :

1 – small can of tomato paste  ,  1 -cup Ketchup , 1/4 cup vinegar – 1/4 cup oil  — Water to thin it to pouring consistency , then add the spices –  3 tablespoons brown sugar , 2 tablespoons of mustard powder , 2 tablespoons of HP sauce , 1 teaspoon celery salt , 1 teaspoon salt , 1/2 teaspoon pepper ,  1 tablespoon Garlic powder , 1 tablespoon onion powder , 1/4 teaspoon of oregano ,  1 tablespoon BBQ spice .  You can adjust these spices to your own taste. Add more of some or less.  I adjusted it for our taste . Its real good as is but its up to your personal taste buds.

Bring to simmer and simmer for about fifteen minutes , stirring fairly often so that it  does not burn . Once its turned off let it sit and the flavors with blend and it will taste very yummy. Use what you need for that batch of ribs and after that let cool and bottle the rest for the next time.  It will last for a good week .
