When did Dads get the “Grill Master” tittle? I know I do about 60% of the grilling at our house, especially during the week when dad is not around to help. I know my husband likes it when we entertain and grilling is on the menu. He always seems to find one other dad to stand outside with him to escape the other duties in the house. (Assuming it is not raining). So why not make a batch of home made BBQ sauce to slather on these super easy ribs recipe. Ribs can be intimidating to make, at least I thought so before I knew you could bake them ahead of time, then when you are ready to serve, plop them on the grill for the final steps. Ribs are now something we don’t have to order out anymore . What is great about this rib recipe is that you can bring them along to picnics or even camping since they are pre baked and finished off on site. Don’t forget to take along a bottle of this Homemade BBQ Sauce for ribs labeled for the perfect Father’s Day Gift.
Did you know there are several different types of Ribs? I had no idea until I brought the wrong kind home for my husband to cook the first time we ever made them at home. The folks at Smithfield are known for their pork products and they make several varieties including the Extra Tender Back Ribs we used in this recipe. Smithfield Ribs are not filled with added hormones or steroids and they are hand-trimmed making them extra tender and juicy. No matter your level of expertise, you can grill great ribs that everyone will enjoy.
I like to prep my ribs by peeling back the lining on the back of the ribs. They just come off the bone so much easier.
Our homemade BBQ Sauce is tomato based and full of spices and cooked quickly on the stove top before you start to bake your ribs.
We bottled up our batch and made these fun stickers to give as gift this Father’s Day. Edible gifts the whole family will enjoy are the perfect Father’s Day Gifts.
After the ribs bake for 2 hours, you can allow them to cool and place in fridge or bring them outside to finish off on the grill for immediate consumption.
I think I need a table out by the fire pit for future grilling moments!
Carefully place your ribs on the grill after the coals have turned grey.
Slather on some more of your homemade BBQ sauce for Ribs and flip.
Get both sides lathered up with your BBQ sauce.
I think they are done. Just the right amount of sauce and gilled crispiness. I am not sure the kids can wait any longer.
These ribs were so tender they were falling off the bone. Want a bite?
