BBQ rib myths debunked by Bobby-Q chef

Updated:

Bobby-Q's Chef Mark Hittle shares secrets to bring out the best flavors in your beef and pork ribs.

1. How do you defrost frozen ribs?
- Whenever possible, purchase fresh ribs. If you have to buy frozen ribs, defrost them in the fridge for two days. DO NOT run them under water.

2. What is the "rule of 3"?
- First rule is how to gain as much flavor with a rub, marinade, or brine.
- We use a rub for our ribs.
- Second is to baste during the grilling process.
- Third is to sauce ribs when serving.

3. Why do you cook pork ribs and beef ribs differently?
- Pork and beef are totally different animals resulting in different cooking approaches.
- The biggest difference is the temperature they are cooked at and for how long.

4. When do you sauce the ribs?
- After the ribs have cooked slow and low for the appropriate amount of time and are on the grill.

Baby Back Ribs (Pork)
Ingredients:
2 racks or 2 lbs. of ribs
Aluminum Foil
½ cup of Bobby-Q Seasoning or your favorite mixes of spices
1 cup of Bobby Q BBQ Sauce or your favorite sauce

Steps:
1. Whenever possible, purchase fresh ribs. If you have to buy frozen ribs, defrost them in the fridge for two days. DO NOT run them under water.

2. Preset oven to 240 degrees. Season each side evenly with your rub of choice and let sit for 15 minutes.

3. Place bone side down, into the oven or smoker for 2 ½ hours. Remove from heat, wrap in foil and cook for an additional hour.

4. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. With a brush, sauce the ribs and place on the grill for 3 minutes of each side.

Beef Ribs
Ingredients:
4 racks or 2 ½ lbs. of beef ribs
Aluminum Foil
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon thyme
1 cup of Bobby Q BBQ Sauce or your favorite sauce

Steps:
1. Whenever possible, purchase fresh ribs. If you have to buy frozen ribs, defrost them in the fridge for two days. DO NOT run them under water.

2. Preset oven or smoker to 185 degrees. Trim beef ribs by peeling off the bottom membrane. Start in the middle of the rack and work a knife underneath the skin, going all the way across and teasing it up. Hold the rib down, pulling the membrane straight up and it will peel from the middle.

3. Season ribs generously with salt, pepper, garlic, and thyme.

4. Loosely wrap the ribs in foil and smoke for 7 hours. If they are cooked at too high of a temperature they will dry up and shrink.

5. Place ribs on grill, basting with BBQ sauce, for 3 minutes of each side.
