Spicy Rio Grande Barbecue Sauce
Why This Recipe Works
We found that indirect heat was crucial to an authentic barbecued spareribs recipe, coming closest to replicating the results of barbecue pit masters. One way in which we fine-tuned our technique was to turn the ribs every half hour for even melting of the fat as well as even cooking. We also discovered that wrapping the ribs when they come off the grill and placing them for an hour in a brown paper bag to trap any escaping steam markedly improved the texture. The wrapped ribs literally fell off the bone.
