Succulent Smoky BBQ Bourbon Pork Ribs PLUS SMoKiN HoT Version
Ribs are amazing! They take so much effort to eat, so they are good for those who want to lose weight!??? I have been making ribs for years and would say, I make a demon rib! Only way it could be better is if I owned a Smoker!!! That would be so cool. This recipe includes a homemade BBQ sauce, however, in a pinch you can just use bought ones. Better enjoyed with a ice cold beer!
- 1 kg american pork rack ribs (full rib is better, ask your butcher)
- Megs Magic Meat Rub
- 1/2 cup Maple Bourbon Liqueur
- BBQ sauce Ingredients
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 300gm molasses
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/1/2 hickory liquid smoke
- 1/2 cup worcester sauce
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 1 tbsp chilli salt
- for smokin hot version add a shite load of chilli. I used 7 pot x naga morich, reapers, chocolate habs, red Bhut Jolokia, Pink 7 pod, and Peach Scorpions. Just blend up the lot and add to sauce.
- Sprinkle Rub over Ribs, rub into the meat, and leave overnight (preferably)
- To make BBQ sauce
- Saute diced onion in the butter over low heat, add all other ingredients and continue to cook over low heat 20 minutes. Sauce should thicken and taste amazing (amazingly hot if using chilli) Taste sauce and if it is too sweet add more salt or seasoning to cut through sweetness.
- Preheat oven to 100 degrees.
- Megs Note ( Ribs can be basted and cooked in a smoker for true bark rings, or on your bbq or webber. I prefer the low and slow temp version for a fall off the bone meat consistency, without boiling them in the sauce. Keep the temps low and cook over many hours)
- Place your ribs in a baking tray, and pour sauce over ribs, (not to heavily coated or they will simply boil in the sauce) Then pour over Bourbon!
- Cover loosely with foil and bake for 1/1/2 hours. Turn ribs over, remove foil and cook for further 30-45 mins, until you get a nice glaze, and sauce has been absorbed.
- Eat how you like them, but they aint good unless you end up with BBQ sauce on your face.
