I use a Mortar and Pestle and pulverize Rosemary, Sage, Oregano, Onion Powder, Cajun Powder, Dry Mustard Powder, and a little Ground Pepper for my dry rub. I left the hot pepper up to those who wanted some on their ribs. I DO NOT salt the ribs.

We buy 2-3 Spiral Hams a year but don't use the flavor packet at the time that we eat the ham. I save the packets and add them to ANY large bottle of store bought or quart of homemade Bar-b-q sauce.

Coat the bone side with either 1 or 2 secret sauce and heat for 5-8 minutes then the other side for 5-10 minutes or until coated the way you like it to look.

I like to cook all the Ribs. Then arrange them on the grill to coat with the Bar-b-q sauce. Some family members like their ribs well done so it's OK if a few ribs are slightly well done.

Great Ribs, Grilled or Baked in The Oven.

Washed, Dried, Rubbed, Cooked, Brushed and Rested...

--The way we like our Bar-b-q Ribs around our house is a slow process, but worth the wait and Compliments!

Start off by washing the sink as if it's the last dish to be washed. There's nothing like a nice, clean sink to work in. After I wash the Ribs and remove the Silver Skin and as much Fat as possible, I take the ribs out of the sink pat them dry with paper towels and transfer them to a large platter or baking dish. I then wash the sink again.

Preparing the Spices for the rub doesn't take long, however, I get the rub ready first, before I do anything else.

Dry Rub Recipe for 3 Slabs of Ribs:

4 Tablespoons Rosemary

4 Tablespoons Rubbed Sage

4 Tablespoons Oregano Flakes

4 Tablespoons Cajun Seasoning

2 Tablespoons Dry Mustard

1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper

2 Tablespoons Onion Powder

A Mortar and Pestle works best to mush the spices together but you can just mix the spices together and rub them on all sides of the ribs. It's best to let the rubbed ribs stay in the refrigerator overnight but it's fine to just rub the spices on the ribs and grill or bake right away. You can also experiment and use whatever spices you have on hand.

Now for my Secret Sauce Recipes... that I'm sharing with you!

I get those packets out of the refrigerator that came in a few spiral hams that we bought a few months ago but didn't use for the hams. I mix 2-3 packets in a bowl with a large bottle of store bought bar-b-q sauce or quart of homemade bar-b-q sauce and whisk it all together. Then I set the bowl aside. I use two secret sauces when we are making a few slabs of ribs. Here comes the next secret sauce recipe, and my favorite...

Buy any brand of Cherry Pie Filling, put the pie filling in a blender with a large bottle of store bought bar-b-q sauce or quart of homemade bar-b-q sauce, blend and put in a bowl and set it aside. The sauce is for the last step of grilling the ribs. The left over sauce is used as a dipping sauce.

Let's get to Grilling...

Now we're ready to prepare the Ribs for grilling. (You can bake the ribs in a 325 degree oven, for 1 1/2 hours, turning them the same way as you do on the grill and coating them with the sauce for the last ten minutes in the oven.) Ovens vary, so adjust accordingly.

Be sure to cook the Ribs on your Bar-b-q grill on INDIRECT HEAT. Turn the ribs every 20 minutes for 1 1/2 hours. Coat the ribs with the sauce on each side for the last 5-10 minutes or until you like how they look.

People will come around from all over the place to have the Best Ribs that they ever ate... and you will be drowning in compliments!

Until we meet again... Francesca27

      Hi DayLeeWriter, Thanks for stopping by. I really like Baby Back Ribs better, however, the guys like ribs with more meat on the bones. So if you are going to make the ribs this weekend get the Baby Back Ribs.
