My amazing boyfriend cooks for me, he cooks for me all the time and pretty much anything I ask for. One of my absolute favorite foods is Ribs and well my guy loves BBQ more than he loves some of his family members, so I picked his brain and am bringing you his many years of trial and error…minus the error.
The first thing you should know is that you DON’T have to have a fancy smoker like he does in order to cook tender BBQ. People claim you need hickory smoke, or coals, or other items to have “real” BBQ, but a source of heat is a source of heat! You can set your oven to 230 degrees (Fahrenheit) and those ribs won’t be any the wiser. When cooking in the oven, you will lose some of the smokey taste, but a good dry rub and sauce will make up for it nicely. We have a pretty decent collection of rubs and one of those is my man’s personal recipe!
