Suzette- Rick is my husband and he and his family have been in the BBQ business for 35 years. Sure as a cat has climbing gear, this recipe is jam up and jelly tight. It is very simple yet mouth watering delicious. You will not want to wear you Sunday best when it comes to eating these ribs.
Big Daddy Rick’s Baby Back Ribs
Just a couple of ingredients for this one-
1 full rack baby back ribs, skin removed
What you need to do-
It is important to skin and trim your ribs before cooking them. So I am going to tell you how to do it. Get your ribs out and turn them over so that the curve side is up and the meaty side is down. You will notice that there is a silvery membrane connected to the ribs. You are going to want to take this off. So, what you do is take a knife and pry under the membrane until you have enough room for your finger to fit inside. Then slowly pull it off. It may come off all together in one piece or you may have to take it off in pieces. Now it’s time to trim some of the fat off of the ribs. To do this take you a sharp filleting knife and cut and scrape the excess fat off of the slab. You can always ask your butcher to do this for you if you don’t want to do it. Place your slab of ribs on some heavy duty aluminum foil and not the el-cheapo kind. You want the shiny side down. Why you say, because my husband said so and he should know because he makes the best damn baby back ribs this side of the Mason Dixie Line. Generously season both sides of the slab with Cajun seasoning. Rub your meat making sure that the seasoning penetrates into the meat. Wrap foil tightly around meat and pop in the fridge for several hours so all of that seasoning can infiltrate into the meat (best to let it sit overnight). Take the ribs out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you are ready to put in the oven. Heat your oven to 300 degrees. Place your ribs, with foil still on, on top of baking sheet. Cook for 1½ hours. Remove ribs from foil and baste ribs with sauce. Place on a hot grill to crisp up the ends. Baste ribs with BBQ sauce on both sides while on the grill.
