boiling ribs before throwing them on the grill

You're scaring me Pslio. Do not, I repeat, do not boil the ribs. Rip the membrain off the back of them, (very thin milky film), and toss 'em on the grill. You can use a rub beforehand if you like or marinate them but the key is to cook them slowly, for at least a few hours. That means that you'll need a to keep the temp inside the BBQ around 200 degrees, cooking the ribs indirectly over the heat. When they're about 3/4 of the way done, (providing there's no rub), start putting on the sauce. Slather them, let it bake on for a while, slather the other side, repeat until ribs are done. And, btw, they're done when they start to pull away from the bone. That's the quick and easy way. If you want to make them really good, it'll take a bit longer.

NOOOOO!!!!

 

 

Never boil ribs (or any other meat) before grilling. Boiling toughens the meat and leaches out the fat, rendering it dry, tasteless and generally inedible.

 

If you have to pre-cook meat, do it low and slow in an oven at 250 degrees for a couple hours. Then baste it, rub it, marinade it etc and finish it off on the grill.

 

Ideally, you should marinate the meat overnight, then slow-cook it at a relatively low temperature. This may take a couple hours, and is best done with a charcoal grill using real charcoal as opposed to briquets. The process requires more prep work and takes longer, but it's worth it. :thu:

Boiling meat. Yuck.

I've seen so many people waste perfectly good meat doing this.

It should be banned IMHO.

I was in Bruges a few years back, in a small restaurant I had a piece of meat that had been boiled in beer. The waiter brought me a big ol' mug of the same type of beer that the meat had been boiled in...incredible meal! :thu:

I've done similar things in the past with beer. Beer is probably the best thing man has invented so far.

IMHo, and as an African- american, let me give you the best known rib recipe ever!!

 

Get in car

Drive to airport (unless you live in Albuquerque), take flight to Albuquerque Int'l Airport.

Catch cab. Drive to This place:

Powdrells

Let Pete hook you up

Wash face

Take cab back to Airport

Drive home.

 

A lot more expensive than doing it yourself, but well worth it!!

Now that's completely different. Stews are fine. Boiling a steak to grill isn't.

And if he's closed you can drive a couple of miles to my place. I have a little electric smoker that steams the ribs as they smoke. After I smoke them I throw them on the grill and baste with sauce just to put a glaze on them. When they're done the meat just falls off the bone and they're the tastiest ever. :love::love::love::love:

 

'Ribs' across from Coronado is good, too. No love from me regarding 'Quarters', though.

I use to eat at that place before I moved here. Harbor, south of downtown, right? You're right; close but not the same. I won't tell you what I had for dinner but it did have green chile. :D
