Is this the one? I took it of the UG some time ago, but never made them. Get yourself some babyback pork ribs. Cut them into about groups of 3. The racks I buy have 14 ribs, so there's 3 groups of 4, then I save the biggest ribs for last and cut the odd group of 2. Marinade using the following: a bunch of soy sauce, half a cup or so a handful of brown sugar half a Dr. Pepper half a beer black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder to taste (use a lot..I'm guessing a table spoon or so) about a half cup of bourbon One rack with these ingredients will fit perfectly in a 1 gallon freezer ziplock. Squeeze out the air so that they're completely covered. Marinate overnight. Next day: Space them out in a pan that has high edges. A standard 9x13 pan will be fine. It must have high edges or the fat will leak everywhere. Cover very tightly with aluminum foil Bake in an oven @ 300 F for 4 hours. Yes, 4 hours. Remove the ribs and place in a smoker. When the 4 hours is up, cold smoke* the ribs for an hour and 15 minutes. * - keep the temperature as low as possible in the smoker...150 F tops. This will probably be impossible in a BBQ pit or grill..you will probably need a real smoker. When the 1:15 is up, baste the ribs in your favorite BBQ sauce, both sides of course. Smoke for an additional 30 minutes. Serve.

yeah, that's the one. I have since slightly modified it. I now pour some of the marinade into the bottom of the 9x13 pan before covering and baking. It helps keep even more of the moisture in.

I'll have to head over to Costco to get some ribs and try it. How important is the bourbon? Is it really worth buying some for the recipe?

Is their an alternative to smoking them? I don't have a smoker, and my apartment complex doesn't allow them...

Cheers

They're pretty much cooked when they come out of the oven. From there, I just grill them long enough to cook BBQ sauce on. Certainly not as good as smoked, but it's the best I can do with the equipment I have.

Sounds like a lot of work. I may try it though, just because my forum homies say it's good.

It's barely any work at all, it just takes time to cook.

 Yeah, looks like a whole day of prep, but 23 hours 50 minutes of that is marinating in the fridge. 

And if you are going to smoke anything, you have to want to do it.  Noone ever says, "Hey, I'm hungry.  You want to get some take-out or you want me to smoke a brisket?"

GF and I had these last night. Damn they were good. I tweaked the recipe a little bit, like I do with everything, (added 3 Tbs worcestershire and some other things) but I don't think it was necessary. I don't have a smoker, so I just made do with my grill like Mullet does. Like I said, they were damn good. I had them with some left-over mellon and my favorite grilled corn recipe (which I will post on a different thread) and it was a fantastic Summer dinner.

how do you guys get the meat soft, so that it literally falls off the bone? Someone once told me to boil the meat first then marinade it and then grill it. Any ideas?

After 4 hours in the oven you will have a tough time keeping the meat on the bone. Well done, alpo. Bravo.

"GF and I had these last night.... I had them with some left-over mellon and my favorite grilled corn recipe" Hey Bill, Ever try putting bacon around the corn, wrapping it in tinfoil, and grilling it? :) -Kev
