Most Amazing Ribs EVER

Recently I had the pleasure of eating the most delicious freaking pork ribs I have ever had in my life.  Ever.  They were fall-off-the-bone, sticky, chewey, finger-licking good, AMAZING.  And made with love by my buddy Jean-Guy.  He has graciously shared his recipe with me and now I am sharing with you.  Be prepared to have your minds blown with this recipe - it will revolutionize the way you cook ribs - no more boiling them for hours and stinking the house up to high heaven - no, those days are over my friends. 

Best Ribs in the World!

Ingredients to make about 4 racks of pork side ribs (10 lbs-ish):

3 cups apple juice
1 cup orange juice
3 tbsp worchestershire sauce
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp dijon mustard (PC brand is still the best by far)

1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp each of: cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, white pepper, parprika, cajun spice

Preheat oven to 250degrees.  Get out a couple roasting or baking pans (you know the standard 11x17 pans - number depends on how many racks of ribs you are doing, but enough to be able to arrange the ribs in a single layer).  Whisk all brine ingredients in a bowl and set aside.  In another bowl, combine the rub ingredients. 
Being organized! 

Salt both sides of the ribs with sea salt.  Coat the meaty sides of the ribs with the rub. Get your roasting pans ready by dividing up the brine equally between them. 

Place the ribs meaty side down into the brine (this is the side that is now covered in rub).
Ready for the oven
After about 5 hours...

Bake at 250 degrees for 4-5 hours.
Basting away in margaritaville....

Finish the ribs off on the bbq and baste with either the sauce you have been cooking the ribs in all day OR do what I did and baste with bbq sauce with sriracha sauce for a spicy kick!

tender, chewy-licious!

You are welcome!


  1. I love ribs and these look delicious!!!!!

  2. These ribs look awesom!! I have never made ribs before, but I think I will have to give them a try this weekend as we are actually having a BBQ! Thanks for finding me on it ahs lead me to these RIBS :)

  3. How could I pass a post titled World's Best Ribs and oh boy, do they look good! Am going to give these a try. Now what did you say about a margharita! :)

  4. Wow! I'm picky about my ribs, but these look like they'd shoot straight up there on my list!

  5. This looks fantastic! Do you think it would work well to do the brine/bake process in the slow cooker and finish it off in the oven? I don't have access to a bbq.
