Best BBQ Rib Recipes

Recipe By: Patrick and Gina Neely

Hi Friends,

BBQ ribs is a staple at every 4th of July celebration and today our featured recipe comes as no big surprise. The Neelys use a meaty St. Louis-style rib cut for this classic recipe. They rub the ribs with a seasoning mixture, cook them low and slow over indirect heat and then baste them with their homemade barbecue sauce. Yum!

Here's the Neely's Wet BBQ Ribs Recipe
Total Time: 10 hr 25 min
Prep: 25 min
Inactive: 4 hr
Cook: 6 hr
Yield: 4 servings
Level: Easy

Ingredients
Sauce:
  • 32 ounces ketchup
  • 16 ounces water
  • 6 ounces brown sugar
  • 6 ounces white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard powder
  • 2 ounces lemon juice
  • 2 ounces Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 ounces apple cider vinegar
  • 2 ounces light corn syrup
  • 3 to 4 pounds spare ribs
  • 2 ounces Neely's Seasoning Mix, recipe follows
Neely's Seasoning Mix:
  • 4 ounces paprika
  • 2 ounces sugar
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
Directions
Sauce:
Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a stockpot or large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Reduce temperature to low and simmer, uncovered, for at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile, trim the spare ribs, removing the upper brisket bone and any excess fat; this will produce a St. Louis-style rib. Rinse the ribs and season with Neely's Seasoning, and then cover and refrigerate for 4 to 12 hours.

Indirect cooking in a barbecue pit is recommended to prevent burning. Cook at 250 degrees F (curled side of ribs facing up) for the first 3 hours, and then increase the temperature to 300 degrees F for the final 3 hours. Baste the ribs only during the last 30 minutes of cooking to prevent sauce from burning.

Neely's Seasoning Mix:
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Who Loves Ya Baby-Back?

Recipe Courtesy of Alton Brown

Total Time: 4 hr 35 min
Prep: 1 hr 10 min
Cook: 3 hr 25 min
Yield: 2 slabs ribs
Level: Intermediate

Alton shares his technique for making perfect-every-time baby-back ribs. These easy indoor ribs are spiced up, then braised in the oven and glazed with a homemade sauce.

Ingredients
2 whole slabs pork baby back ribs

Dry Rub:
  • 8 tablespoons light brown sugar, tightly packed
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon jalapeno seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Braising Liquid:
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
Directions
Preheat oven to 225 degrees.

In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Place each slab of baby back ribs on a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil, shiny side down. Sprinkle each side generously with the dry rub. Pat the dry rub into the meat. Refrigerate the ribs for a minimum of 1 hour. In a microwavable container, combine all ingredients for the braising liquid. Microwave on high for 1 minute.

Place the ribs on a baking sheet. Open one end of the foil on each slab and pour half of the braising liquid into each foil packet. Tilt the baking sheet in order to equally distribute the braising liquid. Braise the ribs in the oven for 2 1/2 hours.

Transfer the braising liquid into a medium saucepot. Bring the liquid to a simmer and reduce by half or until of a thick syrup consistency. Brush the glaze onto the ribs. Place under the broiler just until the glaze caramelizes lightly. Slice each slab into 2 rib bone portions. Place the remaining hot glaze into a bowl and toss the rib portions in the glaze.

NOTE: This recipe makes several batches of dry rub. If more rub is needed, it can be extended by any amount, as long as the ratio of 8:3:1:1 remains the same.

Spice Rubbed Smoked Ribs with Maple-Horseradish Baste

Recipe Courtesy of Bobby Flay

Bobby uses a spice rub which tenderizes the meat and creates a crust on the outside as the ribs smoke. Then he tops them with a maple-horseradish glaze for an unconventional barbecue sauce.

Total Time: 2 hr 15 min
Prep: 15 min
Inactive: 30 min
Cook: 1 hr 30 min
Yield: 8 servings
Level: Easy

Ingredients
Maple-Horseradish Glaze:
  • 2 cups pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup prepared horseradish, drained
  • 2 heaping tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1/3 cup Spanish paprika
  • 3 tablespoons ancho chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons New Mexican chili powder

  • 4 racks pork ribs (3 pounds each)
Directions

Ribs: Stir spices together in a medium bowl.

About 1/2 hour before cooking time, soak hickory chips in enough water to cover. Drain chips. In a covered grill, place slow burning charcoal in both sides of a drip pan. Sprinkle coals with wood chips. Bring temperature to 220 degrees F.

Rub top side of each rack of ribs with about 3 tablespoons of the rub. Place ribs, bone side down, on grill. Close cover or place cover on the smoker. Grill about 4 hours, adding chips every 20 minutes. During the last 10 minutes of grilling, brush liberally with the Maple-Horseradish Glaze.
