BBQ Spareribs

Now for a quick and easy BBQ Spareribs recipe with a nice Honey Glazed BBQ Sauce.  This recipe uses the cheat of boiling the meat prior to grilling vs. slow cooking or true barbecuing.  Now, let me tell you that’s how I started grilling BBQ Spareribs and then glazing the with a nice BBQ sauce when I first started getting hooked on grilling.


To really make great spareribs, and it is hard, is to slow cook them.  The trick is to keep them moist.  The best way is to wrap them in aluminum foil while slow BBQing them.  I think its also important to have them properly smoked with Mesquite wood so you get that nice red ring in the meat with a great smoky flavor.  Whether you do this recipe the long-slow hard way of slow Barbecuing or through the quick method of boiling and then adding the Honey Glaze to the meat while grilling is up to you.  Just be sure to NOT burn the Honey BBQ Glaze with too high a heat on the grill.  That’s the secret to properly getting a nice glaze of the sauce on the meat without that burn flavor.
