    BBQ sauce does not make BBQ ribs.

    Just putting BBQ sauce on ribs does not make them real BBQ ribs. Counterfeit copies, not true BBQ.
    Oven-baked ribs and sauced,
    Boiled ribs and sauced,
    Pressure cooked and sauced,
    Crockpot and sauced,
    Although they may be mighty tasty and paired with PBR.
    Happy grilling on you

        Heck, bbq ribs don’t really need sauce if cooked properly. Think Memphis style dry ribs!!

          I do sauce on the side for ribs and pulled pork at home.

          98% of the time, there is no sauce on my ribs.

          I put BBQ sauce on the table when time to eat, but it is never used in the smoking process

            Raw sauce on the side does not taste at all the same as sauce caramelized on the meat during cooking. IMHO, BBQ sauce tastes best when it has been sizzled, and even lightly charred, over direct heat. Better than baked on like most of the YouTubers do it.

          I like my ribs both ways! Boiled.....or done in the crockpot.

            Just wait until you slow cook ‘em in the microwave! Don’t forget a small dish of water to keep the cooking chamber humid.

          I agree. Ruby Tuesday - strange as it sounds and as much as the pitmaster in me hates to say it- makes some great ribs. They are grilled & sauced, not smoked, no bark. But, they are good because it's pretty tasty sauce. I call them "restaurant ribs", not "ribs" though. Standalone "ribs" are their own kinda special as we all know. Some folks 'round here call those type of ribs "wibs".

            I like to apply sauce toward the end of the cook in order to create a glaze. Back in the day when I’d smoke ribs in advance for a special occasion I wouldn’t apply sauce at all while smoking. Then a day or two later I’d apply sauce and baste them lid off over a hot gas grill. I’d flip quickly and would keep brushing each side with sauce and then flip until I ran out of sauce. After 6 -8 flips they’d have a good glaze and would be warmed through.

              This way of saucing is what I do every time (not the cook ahead and reheat part). I try to limit it to 2 applications of sauce per side now, although I didn't always.

            Braised ribs can still be good. Just not the same.

              I still make the following ribs once in a while. They are so good. Oven Braised and Broiler finished. Alton Brown never calls them BBQ ribs so in my opinion he has committed no foul.

              I do change Alton Brown’s rib rub a bit. It’s too salty for my taste. I go 8 2 1 and 1. Only 2 parts salt not 3 as the video shows.

                ssandy_561 is that the “who loves ya baby back” recipe? I’ve done that one and riffed on it more times than I can count. I agree with the no foul.

                Agreed. Altons are good too.

              #12
              No sauce here, sauce is on the side. I do put the sauce in a pan on the smoker for an hour or so to heat and get a little smoke in it and serve it as a dipper.

                Amen! The world is confused because they accepted a burger with a strip of bacon and some BBQ sauce as the “barbecue cheeseburger”.

                ...and you can add “western” to that title if you slap an onion ring on there too. 🤦🏽

                  I’ve always called that a western bacon cheeseburger (probably because Carl’s Jr.)

                Being Polish-Lithuanian, grandma always made braised ribs over sauerkraut. Then when I was taking care of her, she taught me how to do it. I always picked off the sauerkraut (I know... bad Polish girl). Then I made my own sauerkraut. I am in love!

                  "it was the meat that is sweet" to feed the fleet, to them I greet, and then beat feet. But store-bought sauce is no a cheat in the evening heat.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.
