Melt In Your Mouth Ribs using our Kansas City Rub

Kansas City Dry Rub Spice Blend

Ever tried Alabama Fries with your ribs?          Recipe here.

Ingredients:

  • Baby back pork ribs, membrane removed
  • Kansas City Rub

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Ribs: Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. Pat the ribs dry with kitchen paper.
  2. Apply the Kansas City Rub: Generously season the ribs with the Kansas City Rub, ensuring to cover both sides evenly.
  3. 3 Hours Smoking: Set up your BBQ for indirect grilling at a low temperature, around 107°C to 121°C. Place the ribs bone side down away from the direct heat. Close the lid and smoke for 3 hours, maintaining a consistent temperature.
  4. 2 Hours Wrapped: After 3 hours, remove the ribs from the BBQ. Wrap them tightly in aluminium foil, optionally adding a splash of apple juice inside the foil for moisture. Return the wrapped ribs to the BBQ and continue to cook for another 2 hours at the same temperature.
  5. 1 Hour Unwrapped: Remove the ribs from the foil and place them back on the BBQ over indirect heat. Cook for another 1 hour, during which the ribs will firm up and get a perfect glaze.
  6. Rest and Serve: Let the ribs rest for about 10-15 minutes before slicing. Serve with your favourite BBQ sauce on the side.

In the Oven: Slow-Cooked Baby Back Pork Ribs

Ingredients:

  • Baby back pork ribs, membrane removed
  • Kansas City Rub

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 150°C.
  2. Prepare the Ribs: Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. Pat the ribs dry with kitchen paper.
  3. Apply the Kansas City Rub: Generously season the ribs with the Kansas City Rub, ensuring to cover both sides evenly.
  4. Prepare the Water Bath: Place a large roasting tin filled halfway with water on the bottom rack of the oven. This will create a moist environment to help keep the ribs tender.
  5. Cook the Ribs: Place the ribs on a rack in a roasting tin above the water bath. Cover the ribs and the tin tightly with aluminium foil to trap the steam.
  6. Slow Cook: Cook in the preheated oven for about 3 to 4 hours, or until the ribs are very tender.
  7. Finish with a Glaze: In the last 15 minutes of cooking, remove the foil and brush the ribs with a thin layer of BBQ sauce or honey for a glaze. Increase the oven temperature to 200°C and return the ribs to the oven uncovered to caramelise the glaze.
  8. Rest and Serve: Let the ribs rest for about 10-15 minutes before slicing. Serve with extra BBQ sauce on the side.
