Barbecue Spare Ribs Recipe

Summary; Barbecue spare rib recipe. A no miss way to slow cook your barbecue spare ribs. This recipe  is so easy even a husband can do it. It isn't the same as smoking them for twelve hours but your spare ribs will taste as good. Serves 4

Spare Rib Recipe Ingredients

4 pounds pork spare ribs

1 cup catsup or ketchup

Pepper, to taste

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1/4 Cup mustard

1 water

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup vinegar

2 teaspoons paprika

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 medium onion, very finely chopped

Spare Rib Recipe Directions

Cut spare ribs into two bone servings and place on center of grill with grey-white coals being arranged to the outside. If using gas grill use the lowest setting possible.  Preferably center of grill while only lighting outside burners. Slowly cook ribs 1 to 1 1/4 hours, bone side down. If the barbeque ribs are cooking to quickly on the gas grill you might need to place spare ribs in shallow disposable baking pan to keep from burning the outside or wrap in foil, but watch for fat run off catching on fire. Only wrap in foil after getting a nice brown on the outside of spare ribs or you will end up with more of a steamed spare rib than a barbecued one.

Hint: The fire won't hurt the ribs as long as they don't catch. In fact I like the smoke flavor when I BBQ.

If using a two burner bbq grill another trick is to place all the  pork ribs on one side of grill and turn off flame to that side. Watch your smoke flow and try to place your ribs on the side your smoke exits your lid. I say "try" because don't drive yourself crazy with wind changes or your mother-in-law's hot air flow. If you do this allow barbeque spare ribs another 15 minutes to cook.   Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan and simmer 10-15 minutes or until barbecue sauce begins to thicken. If you have a side burner on your gas grill - this is what it was intended for - NOT COOKING VEGETABLES!!!

Brush ribs generously with BBQ sauce and continue to cook on lowest heat possible, about 30 minutes, basting with barbecue sauce. If this seems like a lot of work or a ball game is on - simply let spare ribs cook until completely done then toss ribs in a bowl, cover with barbecue sauce and flip them a few times with a flick of the wrist. With practice this can look pretty cool to your bbq guests
