Outside Inside BBQ Ribs

Today it’s all about Grilling. On the menu for tonight’s dinner is one of my personal favorites, BBQ Ribs. Outside Inside Ribs are made in the manner that the title suggests. The ribs are first grilled outside until golden brown and the juices run clear. The ribs are then brought inside and placed in a roasting pan. Your favorite bottled or homemade bbq sauce is poured over the ribs. In the oven they go and then baked at 300 to 325 degrees for an hour and a half.

Tender and Juicy

The reason for grilling the ribs first, allows for the best of both worlds. Grilling the ribs outside first gives the ribs that “grilled” flavor everyone loves. The fat on the ribs is allowed to cook off somewhat thus enhancing the flavor even more. Baking the ribs inside the oven with the sauce further allows the ribs to become extremely moist and fall off the bone tender. Once you cook your ribs in this way, you’ll never make them again any other way.

Make Your Own

Here are more of our rib favorites: Baked BBQ Baby Back Ribs and Oven Baked Barbecue Ribs. For all of our barbecue recipes, we use Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce. “The Sauce is the Boss!” You can definitely make your own barbecue sauce for this recipe. With all of the delicious barbecue sauces on the market today, I usually don’t make my own and opt for one of the many sauces on the market, usually Sweet Baby Rays:)

We have made our own barbecue sauce in the past but we can never seem to get it to the thickness that we like. If you have a recipe that you like and works for you, (and gets nice and think:) please email us with the recipe to: [email protected] and we’ll give it a go.
