BBQ ribs recipe

I don’t think there is anyone that doesn’t love good barbecued ribs (unless you’re a vegetarian), but we don’t love how complicated and time consuming BBQ rib recipes can be.  So often they’re crock pot recipes, or a combination of cooking in the oven first and then transferring to a barbecue grill.

This is all fine, but we’re talking summer cookouts right now.  Most of us would rather be outside enjoying our family and friends, not in the kitchen!  Once you have prepared your spices on the ribs and wrapped them in foil, you can be outside where the fun is (and you can actually do the prep steps outside too).

I think the primary thing to pay attention to in the recipe is how they are cooked using the double layers of foil.  The spices and type of barbecue sauce can be modified to fit your own tastes.  This works whether you are using beef ribs or pork ribs.
