Baby Back Ribs!

Tonight I cooked ribs for the first time in my life.  I made my own rub based on many of the Kansas rubs I found online. There are TONS of them online, so I took what I liked from a few and put my own twists and turns in it.

I love to experiment and many of those experiments have turned out pretty bad; just ask my mom about chicken I once cooked that turned out purple (I'm not joking).  Some have turned out very good.  This one, by far was the best ever!

I cooked them for our small group Bible study and they were a hit.  They weren't good. . .they were awesome!  Even a girl who pretty much only eats chicken as her meat tried them and loved them.  I'm pretty stoked about it, especially since small group became my guinea-pigs and it could have been a disaster.

They were sweet and very spicy!  Sarah told me this is a meal I "must" cook for her mom and dad when they visit next month.

Now I just need to write down everything I did before I forget.

Next on the menu. . .I want to rework my chili.

Did you grill them then finish them off in the oven? That's what I do. I grill them to get that crispy outside then bake them wrapped in foil for a long time on low in the oven and the meat falls off the bone.

They were completely baked, for about 3 hours. Baking definitely makes them tender.

I had my first go at ribs a few weeks ago. good stuff.

TerryKM said...

Nate, the next time I'm up we'll need to have a rib cook off.

Sounds good, Terry.
But I gotta tell you, the ribs Nathan made were most excellent. And he didn't cheat by cooking them in the oven, either.

TerryKM said...

Cheating?! That's not cheating. That's being smart. Plus, cooking with gas is more like cheating.

Man, now I want to try everyone's ribs!!!

fyi, dad, Terry's ribs were ten times better than any that you and mom ever made. You need to try the oven
