Spare or Baby Back Ribs
Van Roehling Sweet Piggy Seasoning™
Van Roehling Jalapeno Red Plum Sauce™
Daddy's Mopping Sauce (recipe in 'Appetizers')
Cooking Over Direct Heat:
Pat the ribs dry with paper towel and put on a coat of Van Roehling Sweet Piggy™. You want a solid coat with the ribs covered with product on both sides. This is not a caking coat that is layered. Place ribs on the grill and cover. Depending on the heat of the fire, I turn every 12-15 minutes (the hotter the fire, the sooner I flip). AFTER the seasonings are seared on, I begin mopping the ribs with Daddy's Mopping Sauce. I use a brush or small mop and moisten the entire slab of ribs (both sides). Mop one side of ribs, cook up to 15 minutes, turn and then mop that side. Keep flipping and mopping until ribs are done and tender. Just before the ribs are finished, I glaze with Van Roehling Jalapeno Red Plum Sauce™. I put this on the top side, then close the lid and allow it to caramelize for about 4-5 minutes. Then repeat on the other side. You'll know your ribs are done when the meat starts pulling off the bone ½ inch when you give it a little pull. Of course, depending on your desired tenderness, you'll want to cook more or less.
Cooking with Indirect Heat - Smoking
*If you desire to cook your ribs over indirect heat and smoke them, everything is the same as above except I flip every 30 minutes. AFTER the seasonings are seared on, I begin mopping every time I flip. Just before the ribs are finished, I glaze with Van Roehling Jalapeno Red Plum Sauce™
. I put this on the top side, then close the lid allow it to caramelize for about 15-20 minutes. Then repeat on the other side.
