Perfect BBQ pork ribs

    3 hours 20 min

    Barbecue pork ribs should be incredibly juicy, full of heavenly barbecue flavours and should melt in your mouth - get ready to achieve perfection with this foolproof recipe. The trick is to slow bake the ribs for several hours before placing them on the barbecue. You can make your own barbecue sauce, but I don't bother - this recipe is all about being lazy and achieving a fantastic result!!

    1. Preheat the oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, whisky, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, salt and pepper and oil. Mix well.
    3. Lay a rack onto a double sheet of aluminium foil and season. Bring the sides of the foil up a little to make a rough bowl shape then pour over enough of the barbecue sauce mixture to coat the ribs on all sides. Seal the edges of the foil together to form a leak-proof parcel. Repeat with the other 3 racks.
    4. Place the parcels in a single layer on a baking tray, or in a baking dish.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove from the oven.
    6. Preheat the barbecue to a medium high heat, if using charcoal allow the flames to die down and the coals to turn grey.
    7. Carefully remove each of the 4 racks from the foil parcels and place on the barbecue grate, discard the parcels and juices. They will be tender, so take care moving them.
    8. Barbecue on each side for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until a nice char has been achieved. Remove from the barbecue and serve hot.

    These were fall off the bone good - so tender! Our racks were quite big, so we increased the oven temperature to 200 C / Gas 6 and cooked for about 90 minutes longer - they came out perfect and were almost falling apart!  -  23 Jun 2014


    We made these for an afternoon BBQ, they were absolutely the highlight of the meal. These ribs were spicy, tender and moist! Just wonderful! I would recommend these for anyone wanting a special summer treat!  -  09 Jun 2014
