another summer dinner favorite on the grill has to be barbecued baby back pork ribs. these ribs are cooked for several hours, a minimum of two and one-half, at 350 degrees in the oven, prior to grilling. the best way to cook these ribs is in a deep roasting pan with 2 cups of water. often i use a roasting rack, and cover the ribs with a favorite barbecue sauce. then, the roasting pan is covered with aluminum foil, and the meat is placed into the preheated oven.
the ribs are baked for as long as possible to allow the rib meat to become fully cooked and falling off the bone. i transfer the cooked ribs to a sheet pan and cover them with additional barbecue sauce and grill them outdoors just to achieve the grilled exterior. these are delicious served with corn on the cob and cole slaw.
this is a perfect summer meal for a Saturday night.
