Barbecue Short Ribs

Usually, when I make ribs, I roast them in the oven all afternoon. I have no yet attempted to use my grill as a smoker and I wasn’t feeling into learning how to do it on a Wednesday afternoon, so I decided to roast them for a little while before taking them out to the grill. Smoking them in a barbecue or smoker is probably the best way to do it, but I cheated a little, just to avoid rough and bloody ribs. 😉

The real star of this was the barbecue sauce anyway! It’s the most basic barbecue sauce and a great jumping off point for experiments!

Short Ribs

2 lbs short ribs
1 1/2 cups ketchup
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup vinegar
5 tablespoons brown sugar
5 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Make the barbecue sauce the night before, then in the morning brush it all over every side of each rib and let that rest in a covered dish in the fridge for a few hours. Then, roast it at 375 for an hour or so and theeeen take it out to the grill.

 
 
 

Personally, I feel like ribs should be served with corn on the cob every time, so that’s what I always do but that is probably just my personal association. Your side combos are endless!
