Have you ever wondered how bbq houses get their ribs so smoky and full of flavour, but then you struggle at home making ribs the same way? Well then, this blog post is for you, because I will teach you how to get your ribs smoky and full of flavour, similar to your favourite bbq house. The good thing is you do not need an outdoor grill. However, if you do own one, even better for you.
The first thing you need to do is remove the thin clear lining behind your ribs. Leaving this lining on prevents all the flavour from soaking in.
After you have removed the lining, season your ribs with a dry rub all around. Let this marinade for 2-4 hours or more, depending on how much time you have. The more time you marinade for, the sweeter the ribs *lol*
So if you do not own an outdoor grill, or you are out of charcoal, this stage is very important and should not be skipped, because this is the stage that changes everything.
Lay your rack of ribs on a grill tray, and place it over your stove on medium heat. Grill both sides of the rack for for 5-10 minutes, keeping a close watch on it, because you do not want your house burning down. When the ribs are cooked on the outside and have a few black patches as pictures below, transfer to foil. You will finish it off in an oven.
Your ribs should look like the above when done. All that liquid is from the rack of ribs. There was no extra oil or liquids added during cooking. When ribs are cooked, cut as desired and eat with side of choice.
