Texas Style BBQ Pork Spare Ribs Recipe
The right thickness really counts
Texas style BBQ pork spare ribs and steaks.
Steaks that are at least 3/4-inch to 1-inch thick won't dry out
easily during grilling. Trim off excess fat and slash the fat
edges at 1-inch intervals to prevent curling.
Turn your steak with tongs once, halfway through cooking
(don't use a fork - it will pierce the meat and let the natural
juices escape). Many factors can influence cooking time -
including the weather, especially wind, when you're using
charcoal - so test for doneness by cutting into the thickest
part of the steak and checking its color.
2. Hamburgers: Make ground-beef patties about
1-inch thick - they're juicer than thinner patties. Ground
meat is very susceptible to bacterial contamination, so
be sure to cook your meat until it's at least medium-well
done (160 degrees F on a meat thermometer inserted
horizontally into the burger).
3. Poultry: Whether you're cooking chicken, duck, or turkey,
the best way to test for doneness is with a thermometer.
Breasts should be cooked to 170 degrees F; thighs and
whole birds to 180-185 degrees F. You can remove poultry
from the grill when it's 5 or 10 degrees below the
recommended temperature, but be sure to let it stand about
10 minutes to allow the temperature to rise.
If you don't have a thermometer, remove the bird to a
white plate and pierce with a fork. Any juice that comes
out should be clear. If juice comes out pink, cook a little
longer and check again. You can test cut-up pieces of
chicken the same way.
4. Kabobs: Foods that are cooked together on the same
skewer should heat quickly and take the same amount of
time to cook. Foods with different cooking times, like
vegetables and meat, should be grilled on separate skewers.
Also, be sure to leave a little space between pieces on the
skewer so the food cooks evenly.
If you like metal skewers, buy twisted or square ones,
not round - the food will twirl on the skewers less and
cook more evenly. If you're using wooden or bamboo
skewers, shape isn't a factor. But soak them in water for
at least 15 minutes before using so they don't burn. Just
pat dry before putting food on them.

BBQ Pork Recipes
Pork is one of the most popular meats eaten over the world.
It has a juicy, tender texture with a mild flavour that is
complemented by a wide range of herbs and spices, and
responds extremely well to a wide variety of marinades.
Handy Hints for Grilling Pork:
- Most barbecue sauces contain sugar, which
- easily burns, so don't sauce your ribs
- until the last 10 to 20 minutes of
- grilling time.
- Don't parboil your ribs! You'll just boil
- away all the flavor. Instead, cook them
- low and slow over Indirect heat.
- Chops 1-inch or thicker are best for the
- grill. For the most flavorful chop,
- lightly coat the chops with oil and sear
- them like you would a steak. Finish them
- up over Indirect Medium heat.
- Tenderloin can be safely removed from the
- grill at 155ºF if it is covered with foil
- and allowed to rest for 5 minutes before
- carving. During that time, the temperature
- should rise to a perfect 160ºF.
- Use a meat thermometer to be sure.
Smoked Venison Spare Ribs
I like to cook any way possible to see what kind of flavor and taste I can get out of different meats.
Here I will use my smoker on venison spare ribs.
Ingredients are as follows;
I will smoke 16 spare ribs at a time as they are smaller then pork.
16 spare ribs.
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce or teryaki sauce.
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup barebeque sauce,your flavor
1 tsp.garlic powder
1/4 cup chili pepper seeds,like they use on pizza.
2 tbsp. chili powder or less.
Place ribs in bowl and add all ingredients on top of ribs.
Mix ingredients together with hands thoroughly.
Place in refrigerator overnight to marinade.
If using an electric smoker,place 3 pieces of hickory,apple or whatever smoking wood you prefer between electric elements.
Do not use conifer type wood to smoke or cook with as it will give the food a resin taste.
If using a wood type fired smoker follow the same directions,but use a milder wood.
Place the ribs on the racks provided and begin smoking process.
When the wood quits smoking do not place any more in smoker,the reason is you will have too smokey tasting meat.
Usually takes 2 to 3 hours to smoke
Rib Eye Steak Recipe
