BBQ Spare Pork Ribs

I will admit that this is only the second time I have cooked ribs, the first being in the crock pot.  After some reading, here is what I did and the sauce mix I pieced together.  Ethan gave it a big thumbs up and mentioned next time I should make more!

Boil Ribs
60 minutes if frozen
20 minutes if thawed

Prepare Sauce
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
1/4 c ketchup
1/4 c soy sauce
1/4 c Worchestershire sauce
2 c brown sugar
1 tsp mustard
2 1/2 T lemon juice
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cloves of garlic pressed

Marinade Ribs 
leave ribs whole or cut into sections
marinade in ziplock 6 hours + in the fridge

on low heat while basting with extra sauce


350 degrees on cookie sheet for 30 minutes

Ribs are pictures with CGF sweet potatoes and CGF salad mix.

This recipe can also be used for country style ribs.

Courtry Style Ribs are actually not taken from the ribs, but from the shoulder of the hog. These BBQ Country Stlye Ribs were made in my crock pot.

Place ribs in a single layer in your crock pot.  Top with minced garlic and thinly sliced lemon.  Cook on low for 4 hours or so, leaving around an hour at the end for adding the BBQ sauce. (Before adding the BBQ sauce, you will need to drain the juices as I have already done in this picture.)

For the last hour, cover with a BBQ sauce, making sure to carefully lift the ribs to let the sauce sit underneath as well.

I like to make my own BBQ sauce:
1 c ketchup
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
3 T Worcestershire sauce
3 T apple cider vinegar
2 T molasses
1 tsp mustard
