Maple Baby Back Ribs BBQ Sauce Recipe is today’s delight. Backyard bbq is one way to celebrate Memorial Day with this fall off the bone, juicy and tender ribs. Maple glazed baby back ribs with a twist of finger licking spiciness. Marinating the ribs is not necessary as long as you baste frequently once the ribs are tender. It will make a sticky mess with its delightful deliciousness. I can have this all the time...
I love baby back. When I was working I ordered every other two weeks a full slab of the Chicago Baby Back ribs. Ribs is the restaurant’s specialty. I am very picky when it comes to ribs I prefer the smaller portion of the ribs which is the baby back. This cut of ribs is less fatty and more tender than other parts. Well anyway it happened to me at least twice that the restaurant have switched the meat to a St. Louis.
During work week I usually order to go. The first time it happened to me I called the restaurant and let them know that I got the St. Louis meat instead of what I ordered. Mistakes can happen but they told me they run out of baby back meat. The second time around I just went there and returned it. They offered a discount but I refused. It would be nice if they tell the customer first instead of just switching to a different cut. I don’t know If they assumed people won’t care or will not notice. They were wrong. I paid more for that portion of meat and I expected to get what I paid for. So even though I was tired I took it back to the restaurant. That was the last time I’ve been there since.
Now I have all the time to barbecue. When I do, I have a lot going. With this batch I grilled Korean BBQ, the Filipino BBQ not on skewer and tons of eggplant.
Maple Baby Back Ribs BBQ Sauce is one of my favorite sauce when grilling or barbecuing. Just be sure not to burn it. Wrap the ribs with foil and grill for about 40 to 60 minutes. Place the ribs over medium heat on your grill with a temperature of 325 degrees F. Foiling keeps the meat juicy and tender. Once the meat is tender take it out of the foil and frequently baste for about 20 minutes. Again, once you baste the meat be sure that no flame starts to flare up. I am writing this blog at 3:29 am and I am salivating. In fact, I am starving right now. While editing the video my belly was growling for ribs. Maybe it is time to go to bed.
When I woke up we made pancit luglug and it was so delicious. That would be another post.
I hope you have time to make this easy Maple Baby Back Ribs BBQ Sauce Recipe for your Memorial Day celebration with family and friends.
