On today’s show we are going to do something everybody constantly ask me advice on. How do you cook ribs? Now these are going to be done a little bit differently. We are going to show how to do it. But my dad likes the bake his ribs and I always barbeque mine. So we are going to do both. We are going to find out which one taste better and we are going to find out which one is more tender. Those are the two things we are going to do today on our show.
First we are going to bake the ribs. First thing you are going to do is put the ribs in a foil and you season them. However heavy you like it and you are going to flip it over and you do the same thing on the side. Then the idea is to seal this up. That is what is going to hold it up all the way through. Seal it, feel the foil. Almost like a tent on top and then you are going to wrap the ends up so that no more to think about. All right and you are going to cook this for about three hours at 250 degrees.
Now it is time to barbeque. We are going to get the grill as hot as you can, keep the lid close. When it is just really tight and hot, you are going to want to sear the meat. So just throw it right on there, right on the grill there. And you are going to let it cook till it sears the one side and you are going to flip it and sear the other side. All right, after you have been cooking on the one side, you are going to take a look and make sure it is seared and yes, that is what it should like and you are going to heat the other side.
Now as you can see both side are seared very well, now we are ready to cook it the rest of the way. So you are going to want to turn the flame on low and then you just going to cook this -- right out here in the middle, right there. All right, the barbecue ribs are done. It is now time to apply the sauce. One of the sauces I use is the best barbecue sauce you will ever taste, it is real thick, sugar based, just like I like it. All right, I do not know how much you guys like it so hang in there. I will just do a strip right out in the middle and spread it all around with a spoon. Be sure to do it while it is hot, just came off the grill so, we want to make sure that you get it caramelized. Here we go. See the other side, again, this stuff is -- all right, like he get all the side there and just go for it. There you go. And you are going to get that sip for a few minutes then you are going slice it, beautiful.
Okay, here is the baked ribs, you just pull them out of the oven, we will only have them in for about two hours because it is a half of a -- and look how beautiful the bones are going. So let us skimmer to this foil part of it, you set this part in here, there you go. We are going to sauce it up right away before it gets it too cold. Once again, I am using the best barbeque sauce, for a little of taste, we are going to put on what we like, that is how we like it. The stuff is spread around, let us sauce it up a little bit. This will caramelize really quick so you make sure you are doing an extra out of it, you flip it over and there is always more than --.
So here is the test, we are looking for flavor and we are looking for tenderness. These are the baked ones, they caramelized beautifully and these are the grilled ones of course, they also caramelized. So we are going to do the -- we are going to do the grilled first? We are going to try that out, here we go. Not the same as anybody’s, however we get back, Oh! Wow! Come up about an amazing flavor, wow. Now let us do this one here, this one here, yes, there we go.
This one, the bone has belled out. You got to try it now. Wow! It is where -- I have dipped them in flavor but it is still delicious. The baked is definitely better, falling apart, I cannot even say I am partially grilling but they both taste equally delicious, so I am going to say the baked wins this competition. If you like it to ball to bone like that, and you like great flavor, Oh! Good! The baked wins, there you go.
Keep the emails coming, in the mean I am challenged out. I will see later. Thanks. Hey, thanks a lot for watchin
