Tender, sweet spare ribs marinated with homemade BBQ sauce. Cooked in the oven and then caramelized on the grill. Who can resist this delicious recipe.
We like to grill them on the BBQ. And we have some demands as in regard of our spare ribs. They must meet two conditions.
- They should be deliciously tender (the meat should almost fall off the bone)
- The flavor is very important. Without a good seasoning, a spare rib becomes such a disappointment.
Homemade barbecue sauce
And both specs aren't that difficult at all. You prepare this delicious barbecue sauce from my winner recipe and smear the meat generously with it. Wrap each piece in some aluminum foil and cook them at a low temperature in the oven.
This way you have to grill them for another 10 minutes on the BBQ and you have really eaten the best spare ribs ever.
