Barbecue Country Ribs, Anyone?

Everyone has their favorite way of barbecuing ribs of course.  Do you boil your ribs before placing them on the grill first?  It's personal to each home cook how they orchestrate a recipe to make it their own.  This simple recipe works for me.  The trick to these tasty country ribs is boiling them in BBQ sauce before putting them on the grill making them tasty and moist! This recipe will make 8 servings.  


1. 5 pounds pork spareribs
2 (18 ounce) bottles of bbq sauce 
(I like Jackdanielsbarbecuesauce)
2 onions, peeled and quartered
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper


Place your spare ribs in a large stock pot with barbecue sauce, onion, salt and pepper.  Pour enough water to cover and bring to a low boil.  Cook approximately 40 minutes. Preheat the grill for high heat.

Lightly oil the grate.  Remove the spareribs from the stock pot and place on the prepared grill.  Use the barbecue sauce in the pot to baste the ribs while cooking.  Grill the ribs, basting and turning often for about 20 minutes or until they are browned nicely.

Serve it with a baked potato done on the grill. Scrub your baking potatoes, poke holes with a fork all over the potatoes, and rub the entire potato with olive oil (you can use your hands).  Wrap each potato in 2 large squares of aluminum foil and place on the preheated grill for about an hour, turning the potatoes about halfway through.  If making the potatoes on the same grill as the meat, start the potatoes first and put your ribs on when the potatoes are half done to ensure everything is ready to serve at the same time.  

Serve the potatoes with choices of butter, sour cream, freshly chopped chives and a lot of napkins and enjoy this tasty, tangy meal.
