BBQ Pork Ribs

BBQ Pork Ribs

We usually harvest our pigs in the fall and ribs are the first thing we cannot wait to cook. They are amazingly tender, and easily adapted to the grill in the summer as well.

I start by making a big batch of homemade bbq rub. Then I begin the ribs. I like to line a baking sheet with parchment so I don’t have a mess to clean up after. There is no oil or water used in this recipe…it is not a typo!

I let the ribs set for a few minutes and then serve with fresh veggies from the garden or as I did above veggies I am trying to use up before we stick the freezer again after this garden season.

If you want to do these on the grill, after you cook for 2 hours, brush with bbq sauce and grill on both sides till a sticky glaze forms and caramelizes. These ribs are truly a messy, delicious way to enjoy the fruits of all our hard work raising pigs.

BBQ ribs rub


1/3 cup coarse salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp paprika
3 tbsp cajun seasoning
1 1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

I typically double this recipe and store the extra rub for up to 1 month!
