Drop it like it’s hot... on the grill!
Ribs are a BBQ must! On top of wowing your guests during happy hour, they’re easy to prepare ahead of time and require just a few simple ingredients. The secret to tender and tasty meat? Make sure to fully submerge your ribs in water infused with aromatics (onion, celery, garlic, and spices), bring to a boil, and let simmer at least one hour. Next, brush the ribs with sauce, and finish cooking them on the BBQ. The night of your get-together, just throw them on the grill 15 minutes or so, and then watch as your guests devour them!
Baby back or spare ribs?
The upper ribs – known as baby back ribs – are shorter and contain more meat, while the lower ribs – known as spare ribs – are larger but have less meat on them. Typically a less expensive cut of meat, spare ribs are fattier than baby back ribs, but pack a bit more flavour.
