The following is the secret
recipe handed down from my father for tender "fall-off-the-bone"
BBQ - The following are the steps for creating tender mouth
watering ribs.. Here are some photo's of the
Perkins Rib Smoker:
The Grill/Smoker: The key is to keep the
temperature at 300 degrees and don't let the fire get too close to the
ribs. I have a grill that has a separate firebox so only the
heat and smoke goes into the smoking chamber.
The Family Secret Recipe: The
home-made sauce comes all the way from Alabama. The ingredients
are: Catsup, Mustard, Vinegar, Syrup, Molasses, Salt, Pepper.
First fill a bowl up with catsup (this is the main ingredient) put a
few table spoons of mustard, then add about 1/2 cup of vinegar and
3/4 cup of syrup. Add one tablespoon of molasses and then salt
and pepper to taste. Add vinegar and syrup until you get the
desired sweet 'n' sour taste.
The Secret to Tender Ribs: (1)
Wrap the ribs up in aluminum foil 2-3 times. (2) Cook the
ribs for 2 hours at 300 degree's. (3) Take the ribs out
of the foil place them in an oven drip pan on the grill and cook for
1.5 hours on the grill @ 300 degrees. (4) Now put the special
sauce on the ribs every 30 minutes for another 2.5 hours @ 300
degrees. (5) Enoy!!!
