  • 1) Preheat Barbecue Grill to 350 degrees.
  • 2) Clean Ribs, Wash and remove excess fat.
  • 3) Turn Ribs over, slip finger under white membrane on back side of ribs, remove as much as possible.

  • 6) Allow ribs to rest for 45 minutes.

  • 8) We'll be cooking with indirect heat so wherever the fire is move the ribs to the opposite side.
  • 9) Close barbecue grill lid.
  • 10) Check back in 10 minutes to make sure grill isn't too hot and that ribs are not burning, close lid.
  • 11) Check 10 minutes later and turn ribs.
  • 12) For the remaining time leave lid closed for 15 minutes each time turning the ribs after checking.
  • 13) Check Ribs with meat thermometer slipping the sensor between the rib bones. Follow temperature guide below.
  • 14) Once done, remove and let rest for 2-3 minutes.

  • 3) Tilt the baking dish in order to equally distribute the braising liquid
  • 4) Braise the BBQ ribs in the oven for 2 1/2 hours.

Cooking Guide

If you would like to add barbecue sauce during the cooking stage do the following. As the meat nears 15-20 Degrees of your desired temperature begin applying the BBQ Sauce. Fully cover the Ribs and allow the sauce to cook on for 5 minutes, turn and apply again. Coat the meat at least 3 times on both sides ultimately allowing the sauce to bake on for fifteen minutes or more. Once done allow the meat to cool for 2-3 minutes then go to the cutting board. The sauce can be reapplied to the meat one last time just before cutting if you desire. Follow the scale below:
